Sunset last night in North Minneapolis, Minnesota, was a showstopper! Amazing and beautiful!
Plan on gardening again soon now that Spring is here? Don't miss out on getting all the essentials while they're on sale at your local Home Hardware!
The cantaloupe (muskmelons) 🍈🍈 have started flowering. Waiting for the melons now.
Bought moooore plants today 😁🌱💕 We went to a salvation army and got all kinds of awesome goodies...including the recycled cookie tins these succulents are planted in! Definitely plan on bringing some of these to this year's @gypsygoddessfest
Spring is here! Walking around the neighborhood today and see this beautiful succulent, Tree Aeonium. Can’t find any toxicity info online and from books. I believe it’s non-toxic to cats. Maybe consider adding it to your house this year!

How my parents re-use ‘shaadi me aayi hui baskets’ And trust me even they got tired of not seeing them coming to an end 😈😈 #hathkargha #home #diy #gardening
The first 2 pictures was taken on September 2018. About 1/5 of the lawn was bone dry. We replaced the sprinkler systems, re seeded the lawn, nothing! So, I took the dead lawn off and replaced it with water friendly plants aka cactus and succulents. The 3rd picture is how it looked toward the end of Fall and beginning of Winter 2018. The last video is the current state of the garden. Some of the succulents didn’t survive the winter. It was a rather colder winter than our usual California’s winter. I planted some Aeonium to replaced the elephant bush that got completely burned during the winter. I planted a lot of Aeonium in the backyard and all of them survived the winter. Hoping to repeat the success in the front garden. Wow! That was a mouthful 😅Did your garden survived the winter?? #gardening #droughttolerantlandscape
This is a stevia plant I had some 年前發佈. It grew like a weed for quite some time, then it just decided to die. I hear it's a tender perrenial that loses its gusto after the second year but I'm not sure if that's true. Have you successfully grown it?
Here's what happened: I wandered into Miss Oklahoma's backyard and for want of a better explanation, I saw God, at least in the context of what a deity represents to me. Tulips....pretty simple deal, right? Somebody plunks these bulbs in the ground in December, I think, and you stumble out one day in March and.....wow. Whoever out there in the universe is responsible for this, thank you. Kept me smiling. First day of spring and I achieve total enlightenment, how about them apples? If only it was all that simple, right? We're only human.
Meet Kelly and Bruce @theoffgridpear
from South Africa 🇿🇦 “We are a young South African couple deeply connected and wildly in love with Mother Nature. We’ve both been gardening from a young age (starting with succulents). As we grew older and began buying our own food, moving over to growing it just made sense. Bruce was mainly inspired by his mom, who has been growing herbs and vegetables since he can remember and I was inspired by an Introduction to Permaculture talk at the Greenpop Zambia Festival of Action. We grow food because we love it and because we feel that it is an important act of consumer activism. The process is extremely beneficial in so many ways and allows absolute certainty about where one’s food is coming from and how its growing conditions affect the land. We are currently traveling around South Africa - so our location changes almost weekly. Our personal growing space is confined to 6 converted water bottles in the back of our van but, we are very often planting up spaces for our hosts to grow and reap from when we leave. We are working towards a larger space of our own after the journey. Harvesting beautiful, tasty, fresh vegetables and being able to watch them grow every day is very rewarding. As well as, seeing full ecosystems develop and thrive when one gets the balance right. We have been swapping and sharing good seed all over South Africa, as well as helping with community projects such as: Greenpop, SEED and various smaller community gardens. We would like to start an education program on our land when we are able to get it. When you grow food, you will gift yourself a level of happiness that you could never have previously imagined.”
