I let my artichoke flower and Im not disappointed. When I took the pic there were 2 bees a teeny spider and a lady bug all hanging out. #lazygardener#bees
The last picture in this post is a giant Canadian Thistle. It is measuring 7’ tall and is in full bloom. My neighbors probably thought I was mad for letting what most consider an invasive weed grow to such massive proportions. I’m feeling vindicated
When I’m not making dolls or sewing in the ends of crochet I can (very occasionally) be found on my allotment. It’s a new acquisition and needs a lot of work, but these butternut squash make me so happy! They just get on with it, and are cheerfully r
My first tomato harvest for the season!
I have one of those Earth Box planters that we purchased a few years back (They're great! I want to get two more!). For the past couple of winters, I have been throwing my spoiled tomatoes in it, just to se
Is there any better way to spend a lazy Sunday other than sitting in your garden with a cup of freshly picked chamomile tea, in your pyjamas (at nearly dinner time ) with this handsome chap, looking at your overgrown lawn knowing full well you're not
I didn't plant these Hostas.
I haven't watered or really done anything to care for these Hostas.
But they are growing in my yard.
They are blooming like crazy.
Which makes me the Earth Goddess Most high, doesn't it?
Probably should have thinned the beets like virtually every beet growing instruction advises. #lazygardener#beets#gyo
I’ve basically let the garden go! I pulled the zucchini plants weeks ago because I’m that person who canNOT grow them.... and everything else is running wild looking like some unknown terrain in an episode of Naked and Afraid! I’ve got annoying littl
I love growing interesting or heirloom tomatoes! Here are Green Zebra and an Italian organic heirloom called Costoluto fioretine which will mostly ripen after picked (my garden temp is high so they don't ripen well on the vine). #tomatolove#growingt
I admit, me and my husband are NOT gardeners. We love our garden, but just can’t seem to find the time to do much else other than occasionally mow the lawn. But as my wise (green fingered) mum says “most weeds are flowers, just in the wrong place. Le
Although, it is just Thursday, I feel like a weekend already. I have to go to work tomorrow, so that’s not a long weekend for me. I feel candles is the game changer always. It certainly adds that oomph factor and you can tune your mind to feel like a
My hydrangeas are so beautiful this year. Lots of big, colorful blooms. Unbelievable considering I'm the ultimate black thumb!!
A very happy Independence Day to everyone 🧡️
True Independence is of moving around freely, unprejudiced of clothing, timing, sex and location
True Independence is to have all three genders served with equal rights and freedom- at home and in societ
This is what a ripe tomatillo looks like! The husk is dry and split. These are going to make the best sala verde. Así es como se ve un tomatillo maduro. La cáscara está seca y partida. Estos harán la mejor salsa verde. #tomatillo#salsaverde#spanis
Something really satisfying making an enormous arrangement with flowers that you have grown and foliage that you have liberated.
Dahlias , sunflowers, Gladioli,cocosmia, chestnut and corn #cutting garden #lazygardener#jazzflowers #
Lately I have been a lot lazier than greenie! Blame work, party life (it was our niece’s 21st) and a very windy few days! But today we made the most of our local public holiday-yay. We emptied our tumbler for the first time since we started our Bokas
We’re on a quest to design a garden that doesn’t require much weeding. Here’s my most recent experiment- I’ve put plastic down on top of soil that would otherwise just be weeds or bare soil. It became very clear half way through that I should have pl
So I failed at being a plant mom the first time with my mint leaf, but when we went into @gamestop the other day, my friend who works there immediately brought over a nuke planter (vault boy head from culturefly crate) and i had to have it.
A quick walk around the front yard. Not pictured: stubbornly unbloomed #sunflowers , collapsed milkweed after last week’s storms #lazygardener
Today's the day I give you a more complete picture of my gardening areas and efforts this year. We also harvest what's currently available in the garden. Birds you'll hear in this video include wild green parrots, hummingbirds, and the occasional cro
