Halfway through october? Not in our garden... โ˜€๏ธThe flowers are still in bloom, even the muscari think it's already spring ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒน The tomatoes are still producing fruits (and flowers!), we even have ripe strawberries... The world has gone mad, mad I tell you!! ๐Ÿ˜† . . . #halfwaythroughautumn #indiansummer #mygarden #moestuin #organicgardening #urbanorganicgardener #growyourown #extendedsummer #flowergarden #flowerborder

I guess some of the Carolina Reapers are ready... Wish me good luck! ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ˆ (Still deciding on what to do with them... Maybe make some extremely spicy chilipowder?) . . . #carolinareaper #hottestpepperintheworld #chilipowder #moestuin #homegrown #kitchengarden #grownfromseed #growyourown #organicgardening #urbanorganicgardener #mygarden

Trying to get Curry to look at the camera didn't really work out. ๐Ÿ˜„ She kept looking at her sister who was destroying the flowerbed next to me.

Love this time of year! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ I usually eat chestnuts raw, but this year I'm gonna try to make some puree for pies and as a filling for quails ๐Ÿคค Foraging for chestnuts in the woods is a biiiiig must in autumn ๐Ÿงก . . . #chestnuts #foraging #kitchengarden #moestuin #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #organicgardening #foraginginthewoods #autumnishere

We finally harvested the sweet potatoe and it's a bumpercrop! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ The heatwave we've had this summer had its advantages as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ . . . #sweetpotatoes #harvestoftheday #kitchengarden #moestuin #mygarden #growyourown #ediblegarden #urbanorganicgardener #organicgardening #thehappygardeninglife

I'll be renting this piece of land come january, but I've got permission to plant some garlic on this bed in the next few weeks. There is also an enormous bush of Jersulam Artichokes at the far end which I'm quite intimidated by ๐Ÿ˜ฎ But they've promised me they will harvest the majority of it and leave me with a small but manageable amount ๐Ÿ˜ There's also a lavas plant on this side of the bed. Oh, and enough horseradish to provide 100 sushishops with wasabi for a whole year ๐Ÿคฏ . . . #planningfornextyear #allotmentlife #kitchengarden #moestuin #organicgardening #jerusalemartichoke #urbanorganicgardener #growyourown #allotment

Cabbages have been a real challenge since I started the vegetable garden, but I keep on trying ๐Ÿค“ One day I will grow the most perfect cabbage, just wait and see! *Grow you motherf*cker. Pretty please ๐Ÿ™* . . . #cabbage #gardenproblems #veggiepatch #kitchengarden #moestuin #thehappygardeninglife #mygarden #growyourown #urbanorganicgardener #organicgardening

The world's hottest pepper๐ŸŒถ๏ธ, the Carolina Reaper ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜ˆ is growing in a pot on our terrace and I have absolutely no fucking clue as to what to do with it... Make fermented hot sauce? ๐Ÿค” (wearing gloves, obviously ๐Ÿ˜…) . . . #carolinareaper #hottestpepperintheworld #itwillbeanexperimenthesaid #moestuin #urbanorganicgardener #kitchengarden #mygarden #growyourown #grownfromseed #organicgardening #hotsauce

Green Zebra tomatoes are still one of my favorites ๐Ÿ… A couple of years ago I rescued a neglected seedling in a garden center. It produced exactly 2 tomatoes while on my windowsill and these tasted so good I decided to start growing vegetables if I ever got a garden. And so it began ๐Ÿ˜ . . . #greenzebra #tomatoes #kitchengarden #moestuin #grownfromseed #growyourown #urbanorganicgardener #organicgardening #ediblegarden #thehappygardeninglife

This bit of 'controlled wilderness' will be mine come january ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ I can not wait, I'm soooo excited ๐Ÿ™Š It's at least three times the size of the growing space I have at home so I can finally plant things like artichoke, huge pumpkins, rhubarb, etc. I have the whole of autumn and winter to plan ahead ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ If you have any suggestions of things to try, hit me up! It's located in a beautiful park and I just feel so lucky, it's a dream come true ๐Ÿ˜ . . . #allotment #dreamsdocometrue #kitchengarden #ediblegarden #vordensteinpark #moestuin #organicgardening #allotmentlife #growyourown

Sorrel leaves have been a real discovery this year. Love the tangy taste ๐ŸŒฑ And they look good on the plate as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have only used them in salads though, looking for new ways to incorporate them in my meals ๐Ÿฅ— . . . #sorrel #homegrown #moestuin #kitchengarden #organicgardening #urbanorganicgardener #grownfromseed #growyourown #ediblegarden #mygarden #raisedbeds

Bell peppers are having a wonderful year! My plants have never been this big ๐Ÿ˜ And they are still producing flowers. Think I'm gonna try overwintering them again (last time failed bigtime, so we'll see how it goes ๐Ÿ˜) . . . #kitchengarden #moestuin #growyourown #grownfromseed #ediblegarden #organicgardening #urbanorganicgardener #thehappygardeninglife #odapepper #purplegarden #amazinggardener

Goodmorning! I walked down the chilly and wet garden this morning to feed the chickens and realised autumn is getting really close now... ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿงก I love it when the seasons change so bring it on! But I would also like an indian summer so these baby pumpkins get a chance to make it through ๐ŸŽƒ . . . #autumniscoming #pumpkinpatch #babypumpkin #kitchengarden #moestuin #grownfromseed #growyourown #ediblegarden #thehappygardeninglife #urbanorganicgardener #organicgardening #mygarden
