We decided to ditch the pots and go with the raised beds. Quick defol and hair cut gave us some nice clones and a promising new start under the trellis. Brewing an #aact for lunch tomorrow aswell. #chopanddrop #cannabis #420 #scrog #blackdogled #organic #organicgardening #shilajitgardening #notill #livesoil #beneficialmicrobes #protazoa #nematode #covercrop #chopanddrop

Chickens are very interested in the new #lasagnagarden. We started with a layer of cardboard and shredded paper, branches and then green leaves, grass clippings, rabbit manure, straw, worm leachate, banana peels and some finished compost from the large mulch delivery this winter from the tree trimming crew. Building it just like a veggie lasagna with lots of carbon heavy materials alternated with nitrogen sources. Chopped and dropped a ton of green nitrogen from the garden. Hoping this bed will heat up and start composting so I can start winter greens as soon as it cools down. #makeyourownsoil #compostinplace #chopanddrop #blackgold #returnthesurplus #reapwhatyousow #growyourown #permaculture #farmyouryard

As a tea lover🌿☕, I prepared a special infusion as an offering to the mighty soil micro-organisms🐾. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Soil likes to be fed well, and showered💧 with medicinal healing tea once in a while... Like compost comfrey tea. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The soil is such an intrticate living ecosysten that supports plant life and many other living organisms. They also foster a home and environment for seedlings, so they can burst freely into the dark and vast grounds 🌙 and journey themselves to the light🌈. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀Beware, compost tea will get a bit stinky since its breaking down plant material and composting for about 2-4 weeks. ~~

This may not look like much, but its the beginning of a pretty powerful process. This Acacia tree has been given a haircut and the trimmings dropped to the ground. This triggers plant hormones to respond with more growth. In a few weeks this tree will have more leaves than it did before. Its stem will thicken, and when the time is right we will trim it again. This goes on, basically forever. Each time we are speeding up the carbon and nitrogen fixation. Gardeners here are catching on with this new way to manage the trees. They produce a lot more mulch when Pollarded rather than coppiced. Across the site there are hundreds of trees like this, that we would have to remove if they were allowed to grow to full size. But like this they can all stay and provide benefit. #chopanddrop #pollarding #syntropic

Canna edulis, Queensland Arrowroot, Edible Canna, Achira, Achera, Dong Rieng, Ganyong, Sakhu Chin, Zembu, Maraca. A hardy, clump-forming and heavily producing perennial up to 2m tall, shooting from a large red-skinned, round rhizome (tuber) often larger than a clasped fist. Lush bright green leaves, 30-90cm long which unfurl on thick stalks. Red flowers, with some varieties orange/yellow. Similar in its appearance to its close relative, the ornamental Cannas.

It's time to start (or continue) thinking about your winter cover crops! This bell fava was planted around february in a space where we are taking back the lawn. Favas are nitrogen fixing and produce a lot of biomass- great if you're planning to use them for green manure or chop and drop. They can be planted in the fall or early spring. #favabeans #covercrop #chopanddrop #greenmanure #growfoodnotlawns #pnwpermaculture #savorylandscaping #permaculture #ediblelandscaping

These nasturtiums are going wild! Throughout the summer I've been chop and dropping them to use as mulch around the garden annuals. I do wonder if they'll negatively affect the apple tree, either by putting too much stress on the branches (though I imagine apples weight quite a bit more) or by decreasing airflow which could increase the likelihood of one of the many diseases that apple trees can get. I will probably pull the nasturtiums off of the tree before the end of summer, which will also give the carrots, beets, kale and parsnips planted underneath enough space to fill out. #nasturium #chopanddrop #eatyouryard #growfood #lazygardener #pnwpermaculture #savorylandscaping #permaculture #ediblelandscaping

This gal loves the cherry tomatoes and black raspberries from the garden. So much. Unfortunately, I’ve been neglecting our home garden much of the summer. It’s been busy getting the 2nd rental up and running. I didn’t plant as much and then haven’t cared for it enough, but there are still some cherry tomatoes growing and a second crop of raspberries has arrived. And omg that is the biggest comfrey leaf I think I’ve seen. I had a volunteer cucumber plant, so I let it grow, but no cucumbers, just creepin around back there with the milkweed vine, taking things over. . . . . . #midwestartist #nebraska #skyfordays #overcastday #giftsofnature #backyardbliss #backyardbirds #busysummer #blackraspberry #wanderlust #summerishere #gratefultobealive #houselove #midcentury #foundforaged #instaartist #flashesofdelight #ihearbirds #yarden #raspberry #cherrytomato #chopanddrop #comfrey #wickingraisedbed #perennial #messygarden #volunteerplants #gardenneglect #weimaraner #weimlove

Have been pruning a cherry tree that was too tall for a home garden. Used the leaves as mulch around the garden and saved the thicker branches for making beds and the smaller ones for trellis and stakes. Nothing went into the green bin !!! #homegarden #gardeningmom #permaculture #nogreenbin #noyardwaste #chopanddrop

#buckwheat is one of my favorite #covercrops since it grows in just 6 weeks. You know it’s time to chop and drop when it’s in full bloom. I’m going to give it another week, but it’s looking pretty ready. I’ll leave the plant residues on the #soil surface, also them to dry in the sun, and then cover the surface with #hay before plugging in my #broccoli or #cabbage starts. The next plots with buckwheat will provide a winter home to #leeks and #onions. There are more starts on the way, but I’m trying something totally new. I’ll keep you posted if it works out. #fingerscrossed #chopanddrop #soilhealth #soilbuilding #organicgardening #organic #gardening #fallgarden

Finally, some rain last night after nearly 3 weeks. Not sure how the crops will fare but we will start putting all the trees in the nursery into the ground. Started today, will continue tomorrow and perhaps day after as well.

🌿 Amorpha fruticosa: Proving to be one of my favorite #permaculture plants and a beautiful addition to the landscape. Before I planted this on our land I’d never seen it in the wild, but this year a few times riverside it popped out! One time it was growing straight on a rock... and thriving! This luscious perennial shrub, Wild False Indigo, makes great pollinator habitat and acts as a nitrogen-fixing perennial perfect for “chop and drop” (cutting a plant’s foliage multiple times a year to use as mulch.) In its second year, it’s one of the most beautiful plants ⭐️hands down⭐️on the homestead. Through drought it has stayed as green as ever and even sends out new growth! I liken it to comfrey in this way. Thankful to ally with this wonderful native perennial! We bought them through our local forest nursery, Georgia O White, for incredibly cheap prices.

Sops need not apply to gardening in Sydney this summer. Just heard today we can expect no significant rain till February 2019 after a 2018 of just 228ml in the macarthur area so far. I have made the choice to save my trees by sacrificing fruit yield, for tree health with a hard prune today. The unglamourous side to this, is mess, and me being a sop (continuously apologising to the trees 😪) as I lop another branch off. The glamourous side is free tomato stakes and satisfaction that I’ll be able to give the trees the water, food and air they need, if they are this smaller size, during nasty summer number 2 (after a very dry winter).

Exciting afternoon on Thursday mowing at the Pink Bungalow yard/forest! A teen bunny hopped into the trailer as soon as I pulled up with the mower, so I had to coax it out before starting up the mower. Then, while mowing, I had to slow for the praying mantis to fly out of the way, so I didn’t mow it down. Afterwards I found some large bones in the yard (!?), and my nemesis the Trumpet vine is currently growing huge seed pods all over the place, and finally I picked some gold cherry tomatoes and Tulsi basil flowers and leaves 😋 Lots of other bugs butterflies and birds too . . . . . #midwestartist #nebraska #skyfordays #sunnyday #giftsofnature #backyardbliss #backyardbirds #searchingforsummer #wanderlust #summerishere #airbnb #superhost #gratefultobealive #houselove #bungalow #foundforaged #instaartist #flashesofdelight #ihearbirds #yarden #bunny #prayingmantis #bones #chopanddrop #trumpetvine #cherrytomatoes #foodforest #monarch #pinkbungalow #tulsi

- Doing her thing - . @lizardbuilt recycling clippings and using them to make homemade mulch. Takes a little extra time but it's well worth the efforts. Helps retain moisture AND it breaks down quickly to feed the soil. Plus, she gets to hide in the sunflower shade 💛 . #wearsunscreen #thegoodkind #pruning #wastenotwantnot #turnwasteintoresourses #keepitlocal #compost #composteverything #feedyoursoil #mulch #diy #sustainability #free #homemade #chopanddrop #backtothebasics #radicalremembering #soilhealth #soilbuilding #plantlife #wildmagicgardens #wildmagicfarm #bugsnotdrugs #organic #biodynamic #permaculture #duh . If you let your veggies bolt, go to seed, then use those clippings as mulch... BAM*!@ #% Next season, the seeds sprout when they're ready (versus when you remember to plant) and you don't have to work as hard 😊 . .

If you cannot beat the “weeds”, make use of them. That’s what I learned from many permaculture videos I watched last year. • tiny #wildblackberries in my breakfast 😋😋😋 • scattered those unwanted tree shoots from the back part of my garden around my slug infested potato plant #mulching #nowaste #chopanddrop

Thank you comfrey, for everything. • • You know, many of us don’t ingest comfrey because of that one study that says it’s damaging to the liver. Since I heard that, I’ve also learned that that’s probably a load of bunk (an isolated inflammatory small sample study)... but yet I only just ate comfrey in my meal last night! It can take time to change behaviors that are rooted in fear mongering! Comfrey, intuitively, feels very powerful to me and something that I want to eat/drink as a tea. A dynamic accumulator, Symphytum officinale is a staple in permaculture gardens and has a long history of use. Here’s me photographing an earlier chop&drop episode (full scale cut the leaves back a few times/yr and lay them around for mulch). It’s always incredible for me to think of the ways plants were thought of in the past (before said inflammatory study for example) and how they’ve been used for centuries... all of that “lore” (=experience)... There is so much wisdom contained in these plant-human relations and it’s my joy to tap it!! 🐳

A variety of muskmelon known as the collective farm woman melon. It was developed for soviet farms in the Ukraine. I admit I picked the seeds based entirely on the origin story. Melon vines spread across the ground shading the soil and protecting moisture. The vines provide good biomass for mulch when the growing season ends. #melon #muskmelon #collectivefarmwomanmelon #cucumis #cucumismelo #viningplant #chopanddrop #multiplefunctions #buildsoil #growfoodnotlawns

Pineapple Chicken Curry, the easy way. 1. Cut chicken breasts into bite size pieces. 2. Cook chicken with pineapple chunks in coconut milk. 3. Rough cut an onion and colorful bell peppers. 4.Rough cut zucchini and squash. 5. Add onion, pepper, zucchini, squash, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, and spinach. 6.

Permaculture Plant of the Day: COMFREY (Bocking 14 variety). Seen at the forefront of pic, comfrey is a rockstar plant in the permaculture world because its great at so many things. 1) it’s known as a Dynamic Accumulator whose roots harvest trace minerals far deeper than other plants and brings them to the surface. ⚓️ 2) because of its dynamic accumulating ability, it can be “chopped”back 2-3 times a year and debris “dropped” around high value plants to provide a sort of a super nutritious mulch. 🍂 3) A nutrient rich compost tea can be made from the leaves to nourish other plants 🌱 4) It’s known in herbal medicine communities as “bone-knit” because of its ability to heal breaks and fractures. 💪 5) The Bocking 14 cultivar produces sterile flowers to prevent unwanted spread of the plant. Unfortunately, soil disturbance can sever its root system and allow it to easily multiply from even the smallest segment of root. The positive of this is that it is easily propagated 🙌 #comfrey #permaculture #permacultureplants #backtobasics #backtoeden #chopanddrop #bocking14 #foodforest #foodsecurity #sustainability

These mulberry branches were obstructing a gateway. I pruned them, pointed the ends with a hatchet, drove them into the damp garden soil and used waste wool to bind every branch crossing with several half-hitches. Amazing how sturdy they are, and that when they are done trellising cucumbers, or tomatoes, or peas, they will become the rich soil where these plants grow. #growyourown #chopanddrop #branchtrellis #permaculturefarm

These parsnips planted last spring have now produced food, flowers, thousands of seeds, mulch, and a home for black swallowtail caterpillars. Lots of uses beyond just planting and harvesting some vegetables. You often reap more than you sow. #permaculture

Stomped the knotweed and tall grasses, exposing the spindly tomatoes and peppers to the sun. The stomped grasses will suppress new weeds from growing while they decompose on the paths. #makeyourownhay

Last fall we planted oats and hairy vetch as a cover crop. Traditionally they're cut and turned into the soil to add organic matter and nitrogen/carbon. We did cut most of it down but because we aren't tilling we just left it on the soil surface (often called #chopanddrop). What didn't get chopped, or grew back, is now producing seed and bringing bees to the garden. The reseed means we won't have to buy cover crop this fall and instead we will have this amazing ever-evolving patch of volunteer plants that contribute to an amazing ecosystem. #permaculture #notill #countryqueers #organicfarming #covercrop

Turning this weedy flower bed into a another no-dig garden bed to grow more veg. It's a little over a foot wide but very long..about 15 feet.. So I may be planting tomatoes here in October as they would be easier to harvest planted in a row. All flowers have been chopped and dropped for now and will continue to water. Further steps to follow.. #desertgardening #nodig #chopanddrop

A few of my neighbors have citrus trees and share with me when the trees are fruiting. To reciprocate this kind gesture I offer compost I have leftover from different jobs to fertilize and mulch their trees. One of the young girls who lives here used to attend Manzo Elementary just up the street so she was very happy to see some compost which she knew all about. I was very happy there are kids out there who are excited about compost! The tree was also very happy 🤗. • • • • • #biomass #chopanddrop #compost #composting #composhustle #covercrop #feedthesoil #feedthesoilnottheplants #greenmanure #growroots #growrootsnotplants #livingmulch #barriohollywood #tucson #tucsonaz #thisistucson #whyilovewhereilive
