It’s been 5 days since I planted veggie seeds that I didn’t think would even grow because My green thumb is more like a green pinky. But I spent the afternoon repotting and spacing because I now have 19283636228 sprouting seeds. Go me!
First seedling of the year. So who can tell me how to grow Brussels sprouts in the spring in USDA Zone 6a? The seed packet only gives instructions for the fall. I hade some delish Brussels sprouts yesterday, so I want to grow these on.
The little flowers of Coriander (Dhania in Hindi & Dhoney in Bengali) blooms in the herbs garden. In cities a lot of coriander leaves are wasted as the sellers adds to cart for free.
1. Make a preserve (or chatni) and keep it in fridge. Use it when needed.
2. Create a small kitchen garden (even pots will do), grow them & use them fresh. 💚

We’re so proud of this little melon 😍 it always seemed such an impossible challenge to grow fruit in Canberra, last years watermelon wasn’t really much to write to Nan about, but this was a triumph 🤘🏻🍉
Growing up with an absent father took a great toll on me, my siblings and my mother. I survived one struggle after another, but through God's mercy, I was able to finalize my studies. After school, life was still hard, as I searched for jobs to support my family. But through all these struggles, I met Jesus Christ. My life has never been the same again. I moved from my home in the Western part of Kenya, and settled in Central Kenya, in Mwea. This area is dangerous with a lot of gang activity. Young people all around are jobless and staying idle. I saw how people in my church were helping get these troubled youths out of the gangs and into God's Word. This was a great encouragement to me and I wanted to take part in this wonderful outreach. I have been training in martial arts since primary school. I thought I could encourage the youth in my area to join my gym that I had opened, and I could connect with them through martial arts. Over time, the number of youths at my gym increased, and I got that opportunity to preach to them, sharing the importance of salvation in their lives. In return, they have gained discipline, crime came down at an unbelievable rate in the region, and they are part of my project to reach out to even more youths. Just recently, I initiated a project to help those transformed youths engage in a farming venture on a small scale by growing vegetables and selling them for their upkeep. It is surprising to see the energy youths have if directed in the right way. I remind them of the good plans God has in store for them. I point to Jeremiah 29:11 and tell them when it seemed no one cared for them, God loved them. It's been humbling to be part of God's plan to get this desperate generation away from their past lives, and see them embrace a positive life with God.
Yeah, they have attitude! 😍 #longpost - We got these boys in May 2008 - Nearly 10 years ago. Mantle on the Left, Tito on the right. Not sure how old they were when we got them but they were the only two out of five we purchased that didn’t die of barbers pole. Unfortunately 3 died within days/weeks of owning them as the dodgy breeder didn’t vaccinate or worm them. Death is something that is natural and most farm kids grow up seeing death on a regular basis. I moved to the country when I was 12 but I had grown up prior to that with a step mum who had property so we would ride horses and enjoy the country life on the weekends, fun times aside, I saw a lot of death. A few years ago I decided that if I couldn’t physically kill an animal, I shouldn’t pay for someone to do it for me and then I started to eat a vegetarian diet, intolerant to dairy and rarely eat eggs so nearly and basically plant based. That is why I only have alpacas and previously had bottle raised pet sheep. They are my paddock mowers and the fox killers. Anyway, I have recently come across a mouse that had been poisoned (not sure where it had been poisoned). My cat actually got ahold of it and I took it to the driveway away from my cat before he ate it. Ordinarily if it wasn’t dying (as crazy as I sound) I would have let it go. I can’t even kill pests 😂 But then I thought about the poor birds of prey who might eat it and the suffering it was enduring and I made the decision to kill it. The first animal I have killed. It happened quickly and it was better than the suffering from the poison but I still felt horrible. #alpacas#australianhomesteader#homesteading#homesteadingladies#homesteadingaustralia#hobbyfarming#growingvegetables#veggieeater
