Teamwork is Dreamwork...not just a motto but the truth. The kids came to the garden this weekend. They put in solid work from 8:00-2:00 both days! . Projects I have been trying to do foreverrrrrrr got done with this team. . There is a spot outside the garden (where we planted the fruit trees) that is always full of weeds that got mulched. Plot 24 was always a wreck. It was never well tended and it had two trees. The kids chopped down those trees and cleared up the area. What a difference! . Their enthusiasm and work ethic is admirable. These students are only 15 & 16. Their can-do attitude is beyond and they put action behind their words. I know I’m going to learn a lot through them. . Many of our other gardeners came to the garden and were able to witness the garden improvements. They felt motivated. I was glad because it’s a garden revival!!! . Some of our members work, the retired ones do not have the physical capacity to do heavy lifting. So it’s really up to me and Patti to do the work in the common areas. We’ve done a lot over the years, but it takes us a long time. . Today,Jennifer helped me clean out the lettuce plot. She always keeps contractor bags in her car and whisks the weeds away! Last week we cleaned up Kristen’s plots as a surprise. Kristen was so grateful. . This is what I envisioned our community garden would be. A happy place where we gather and work together. Share our success and our failures. Learn and support each other! ❤️🌱❤️ . This is a turning point in our garden. The refresh button has been set. Fingers crossed this momentum continues. We could be taking this to another level! Stay tuned! . #igblog #iblogger #iblog #gardenchronicles #beautifullife #asthegardengrows #teamwork #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #communitygardens #urbangardening #organicgardening #lifelessons #lifeafter40isgood #lifelover

Today’s project: installing irrigation in 2 of my raised beds. . I watched a few YouTube vids (so now I’m an expert 😂). . I’m a visual person, so I took notes and drew out what the proposed configuration should look like. . I keep telling myself it’s not that hard! I’m still nervous if I’m being honest. I worst case scenario I buy more tubing. . My DH wanted me to hire my gardener. I was going to, but I like a good challenge and love to learn. Being uncomfortable is part of the process. . I went to the local irrigation supply store to buy my supplies. Jose offered to be my ‘life-line’ and said I could text him if I ran into problems. Nice! I said, I like this notepad you have because it has small grid lines. He said, ‘You want it?’ I said, ‘really?? Yes!’ I told him I’m into hand lettering and then he asked me if I was on social media. Yes, IG and YouTube! He thought that was cool and was going to check it out. . He told me to wait and gave me another pad and a notebook! I told him I’d put these to good use. . Jose, look I’m ALREADY using them!!!! ❤️❤️❤️. . I’m going to bring him some veggies with my fall harvest. I hope he likes veggies. When someone shows me kindness, my reflex is to give back to them. I love to love. . So here’s to having lots of simple love. It just starts with small gestures. It’s easy. It’s effortless. This is another feature of a beautiful life. May the love you give is the love you receive. . #beautifullife #gardenchronicles #mygardenlife #asthegardengrows #iblog #igblogget #blogger #raisedbedirrigation #jose #simplelove #lifelover .

Ahhh loofahs! Somehow I managed to get my loofah gourds going despite their initial challenges. I listened to a presentation about growing and harvesting them at the Mother Earth News Fair and they really appreciated what I learned 👍 I can't wait to give little loofah sponges for the holidays! . One of the biggest things I want to work on next season is trellising! Among other things, I caged the tomatos way too late and I think a proper trellis system will really change the game. Just wait for next year's epic loofah wall. . #homegardening #smallfarm #microfarm #marketgarden #loofah #loofahgourd #growinggourds #asthegardengrows #perseverance #organicgardening

Closer to the end of the second dandelion poof. I’ve started doing something crazy with the other flowers, they are now being cut freehand (except one small section I had drawn earlier). #wip #freehandflowers #handcut #spirographart #spirographcut #asthegardengrows #winginit

Achillea is not allowed in the garden beds, for obvious reasons, like that animals don't understand not to trample crops or poo in the mulch... But she wanted to be near me so bad while I covered potatoes. She came and just laid in an empty spot. Such a good pup 💓 #ilovemydog #farmdog #loyalaf #canecorso #gooddog #asthegardengrows

Aisha's dad got some bunnies! And we let our lettuce way overgrow, so now we have the perfect use for it. Plus our tortoise at home. They love it 💓🐰#gardenfriends #feedtheanimalstoo #farmanimalstarterpack #asthegardengrows #lettuce #marketfarming

Whenever the anxiety of a wet and cold April makes me apprehensive about the seeds we put in I look at the garlic that's been kicking ass since October. Give the soil a few days of sunshine and everything will be alright. #garlic #wintercrop #gonnabegood #asthegardengrows #permaculture #growyourown #notill

The leafy greens are coming!! 🌿 Kale and spinach, so cute. Now the sun needs to stay out and the soil needs to warm so all these babies can bust it out! #leafygreenz #kaleyeah #spiznach #eatyourgreens #homegrown #asthegardengrows #marketgarden #produce

We planted our 8 new raspberry bushes two weeks ago, and they're already pushing out some leaves! We're so excited to grow new things we haven't before, so we kinda go buck wild... We have hops and asparagus and rhubarb to play with too! #planthoarders #natureiscool #permaculture #asthegardengrows #willgrowanything #marketfarming #enviroqueer

We put in some hard work today cutting down cover crop that overwintered in the beds. Turning it into the soil for even more organic matter and fertility. We're practicing limited tilling in these beds (as well as others). They won't be conventionally tilled but rather gently turned with hand tools to disrupt the soil life as little as possible. #gardenlyfe #handtill #asthegardengrows #hardwork #gentlegardening

Feeling extra resistant to working indoors today, when I know our evolving garden is waiting! We've got all kinds of baby herb starts in the greenhouse, leafy greens waiting to pop up from the ground, pictured #4 is our recycled bee/insect hotel! And a lucky little lady bug that appeared to me right after I planted a pretty big dream seed. #isittheweekendyet #greenwitch #enviroqueer #dreamingofhomesteading #asthegardengrows

Time to build our beds! Experimenting this year with a no till garden. Newspaper on bottom to drown out weeds and grass, horse manure and compost, then some good ol tree mulch on top. Happy to get out in the yard, much more work to be done 😅🌱 #asthegardengrows #farmstead #notill #hardwork #delicious #worthit #sunnyspring #seedlings #gardenbed #naturalfarming

I can now see the beginnings of the corn, tomatoes and squash that I planted almost two weeks ago. Oh and PS, I just spent 45 minutes picking off Colorado potato beetle larvae from my potato plants and I can confirm that 1) I didn't know those existed (since I'm a first time gardener) and 2) they are gross and it was NOT fun. #asthegardengrows #raisedgarden #insidethedesign #interiordesign #design #interiordesigner #home #yeahTHATgreenville #greenvillesc #greer #greersc #upstatesc #southcarolina #greenville #homestaging #homestager #stager #staging #homedecor #greenville #southernliving #decor #realtors
