Well i promised next year was going to be the year of the tomato! If there's one thing I'm disappointed in this year it's my tomato production, well wheels are already in motion to rectify this! Cherry and Sun Gold tomatoes coming at you early 2019!!! 🀞 #microfarm #sustainability #buylocal #biodynamic #fernyhills #farm #samford #farmlife #fernygrove #tomatoes #silverbeet #kale #vegetables #vegetablegarden #sustainableliving #brisbane #shopsmall #lot81 #permaculture #urbanfarm #bee #bees #beehives #honey #chicks #chickens #heritagebreed #eggs #organic

It's satisfying when you plant a seed and it grows but nothing beats compost pumpkins! This little baby grew out of the banana circle and I'm hoping for many more. Lucky too as it's far enough away to not take over the entire garden! 🀠🚜🐝πŸ₯•πŸŒ½πŸ…πŸ“πŸ’πŸπŸŒπŸ― #microfarm #sustainability #buylocal #biodynamic #fernyhills #farm #samford #farmlife #fernygrove #tomatoes #silverbeet #kale #vegetables #vegetablegarden #sustainableliving #brisbane #shopsmall #lot81 #permaculture #urbanfarm #bee #bees #beehives #honey #chicks #chickens #heritagebreed #eggs #organic

Last night I ditched the Akubra to don an apron for @chef_mcleod @alfreshco_catering . Plating up canapés, entrees and main dishes for nearly 1000 people. It certainly was an eye opening experience and interesting to see what happens to the produce once it leaves the farm. Even though this night nothing was from my farm... There was a lot of banter in that regard 🀠. #microfarm #sustainability #buylocal #biodynamic #fernyhills #farm #samford #farmlife #fernygrove #tomatoes #silverbeet #kale #vegetables #vegetablegarden #sustainableliving #brisbane #shopsmall #lot81 #permaculture #urbanfarm #bee #bees #beehives #honey #chicks #chickens #heritagebreed #eggs #organic

Summer is just around the corner and the farm is slowing down, with soil preparations for next year already underway. 2019 is sure to be Lot 81s biggest yet with grand endeavors planned but the farm is nothing without its nutrient dense soil! Growing biologically only works with a symbiotic environment, that means giving back to the micro organisms that help feed the plants that feed us. Green manures are a great way to do just that, it contains cowpea, buckweat and french millet. These will grow over the next 8 weeks to be slashed and turned back into the soil. Helping to suppress weeds, killing parasitic fungi, breaking up the subsoil, adding nitrogen and the benefits go on... Don't miss out on visiting Lot 81 before it wraps up for the year, only a couple weeks left!!! The story is just beginning... #microfarm #sustainability #buylocal #biodynamic #fernyhills #farm #samford #farmlife #fernygrove #tomatoes #silverbeet #kale #vegetables #vegetablegarden #sustainableliving #brisbane #shopsmall #lot81 #permaculture #urbanfarm #bee #bees #beehives #honey #chicks #chickens #heritagebreed #eggs #organic

Not a bad view for a weee little watermelon seedling.... I hope it grows, last year not one of my melon or pumpkin plants on the hill produced any fruit! This year i hope to be munching on some ice cold watermelon in the heat of summer and I've made as much effort as possible to see that it comes to pass. Day by day, year by year, my experience and knowledge is building. The pumpkins are a testament to that as this year they've already started to fruit and successfully!!! 🀞 The story is just beginning... #microfarm #sustainability #buylocal #biodynamic #fernyhills #farm #samford #farmlife #fernygrove #tomatoes #silverbeet #kale #vegetables #vegetablegarden #sustainableliving #brisbane #shopsmall #lot81 #permaculture #urbanfarm #bee #bees #beehives #honey #chicks #chickens #heritagebreed #eggs #organic

Amazingly I have been able to keep some coriander alive through this heat!!! Only a small amount available for this weekend only. Also last week for tuscan kale. Sourcing food locally means you have to buy in season produce. There are a few more weeks of grace where Lot 81 will have a great selection but moving forward into summer (the off season), the variety will decrease. I'm already starting to prepare for next year so dont miss out on some locally grown organic goodness, it is only here for the next month or so.. On a side note, it's great to have a break from the heat today... Harvesting has never been more enjoyable. 🀠 #microfarm #sustainability #buylocal #biodynamic #fernyhills #farm #samford #farmlife #fernygrove #tomatoes #silverbeet #kale #vegetables #vegetablegarden #sustainableliving #brisbane #shopsmall #lot81 #permaculture #urbanfarm #bee #bees #beehives #honey #chicks #chickens #heritagebreed #eggs #organic

Well this heat certainly does pose some challenges for veggie growing but it has its perks as well!

"They see me rollin" Some people take their bikes and luxury cars out for a sunday drive, me, i take a tractor 🀠. A friend asked for some honey, I'm like "see you in 30", usually a 10 min drive! It's the small things in life that make the difference... #microfarm #sustainability #buylocal #biodynamic #fernyhills #farm #samford #farmlife #fernygrove #tomatoes #silverbeet #kale #vegetables #vegetablegarden #sustainableliving #brisbane #shopsmall #lot81 #permaculture #urbanfarm #bee #bees #beehives #honey #chicks #chickens #heritagebreed #eggs #organic

I don't know what I like more, the potato or the worm. One feeds me and the other feeds what feeds me! πŸ‘¨β€πŸŒΎ And no one likes nut grass... Farming organically has its challenges, mainly creating a symbiotic relationship between all aspects of nature. From tiny micro organisms to the muscly farmer 🀠 we're all working together! Market starts at 2pm, last week to snag some potatoes! These types of veggies aren't really viable for a small scale farm so there availability is limited. This is what happens when buying locally, food which is available all year round at the shops has only a small window of production in the local area! #microfarm #sustainability #buylocal #biodynamic #fernyhills #farm #samford #farmlife #fernygrove #tomatoes #silverbeet #kale #vegetables #vegetablegarden #sustainableliving #brisbane #shopsmall #lot81 #permaculture #urbanfarm #bee #bees #beehives #honey #chicks #chickens #heritagebreed #eggs #organic
