Zucchini has been a bust this year. For some reason we’ve had a preponderance of male flowers and almost every single zucchini that took ended up with blossom end rot. I know for sure the BER was caused by our lack of water. The plant on the right here gets more water than the one on the left thanks to a drip emitter that lands right below it. I tweaked the timing and frequency of our drip system along the perimeter and it seems to have done weird and unpleasant things to my plants. I’m a chronic underwaterer so irrigation is always a challenge for me. Anyone else having issues with water and drought (who isn’t, right)? __________ . . . . . #gardenerd #gardenme #garden_explorers #momswhogarden #kidswhogarden #backyardgardener #gardenersofinstagram #permaculture #growyourownflowers #homegrownfood #organicgardener #suburbangarden #growingfromseed #summergardening #dreagrowsflowers #dreagrowsfood #inmygardentoday #thehappygardeninglife #nativeswhogarden #nativesinthesuburbs #sdmomsblog #sdmbfamily #sdmoms #temeculaliving #temeculawinecountry #temeculavalley #temeculalife #temeculagarden #familyfriendly

It arrived! I'm been waiting eagerly for my copy of #milkwood ny @milkwood_permaculture to arrive. I found it today tucked behind a pot plant on the front verandah! Can't wait to read it, learn new things and be inspired on my journey to greater self sufficiency 🌿🍃 Image: book cover with red cloth spine. Leaves and fruit at the top and bottom.

Pickles! 🥒🥒🥒🥒🥒 Spent tonight canning pickled cukes. Also more pesto to freeze and a big tray of zucchini noodle vegetarian lasagna. I love fresh produce from my gardens, and will be so happy this winter that I took the time to preserve my harvest. As a vegetarian, fresh produce IS my diet. No thank you to powders, shakes, meal replacement plans. I eat real food only. That does my body good!

I love the way this otherwise plain garden wall is brought to life with  different planters and pots! I wouldn't have thought to use the planters on the wall, would you? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #backyard #greenery #plants #backyardgardening #backyard_dreams  #backyardgardener #gardens #gardendesign #gardening #gardeninspiration  #gardensbythebay #gardensofinstagram #gardentherapy #bayarealiving

Time to make some #sauce! Fresh tomatoes, onions, garlic and basil — all ingredients from our #backyardgarden! (@chrisoat gets full #onion credit) #ILoveSummer #backyardgardener

Why do we always GET ready for a big event like a wedding, party, reunion or vacation? We work hard, get the results and then just go back to how we were before we decided to GET ready. How about instead we just BE ready, for what ever event, party or vacation is coming up. Start now and not stop. Just make it a lifestyle so you never feel like you have to GET ready again! Need help getting started, send me a DM and we can chat😀 #justbeready #makeitalifestyle #fitfam Week 6 / Day 2 Back and Bi's ✔️

Fresh from my backyard garden y’all!😍 look at today’s harvest and just in time for taco 🌮 Tuesday❤️. As I have continued to transform my life style and how I eat I have learned that I love to cook with fresh produce and there is such a HUGE difference in the taste of produce when you grow it yourself. I also like to make my meals as colorful and pretty as possible 🤷🏼‍♀️😁.
