Saturday night pizza.  Eggplant, tomato, onion, garlic, capsicum, parsley, oregano, and egg, I grew it all.  Made pizza sauce, bartered the flour, bought the yeast, oil, salami & cheese.  Husband rolled the dough, baker by trade. ~~ #selfsufficientish #makingthemostoflife #growyourownfood #lowfoodmiles #backyardfarmer #backyardseedsaustralia #urbanfarmer #homesteadingaustralia #makingpizza #growlikeanitalian

"Anything off the trolley, dears?" Honestly, this shadow selfie has me looking like a witch from The Wizard of Oz, not Harry Potter. :P  Love my little green yard cart.  #backyardfarmergirl #selfsufficientlife #biocharcoal #growingyourownfoodislikeprintingyourownmoney  #backyardseedsaustralia

Late planting of cucumber seeds, with 100% germination rate.  We had to wire cover them because birds keep coming in and ripping out our seedlings.  First flower today.  Yippee!  Was going to pull the wire off at this flowering stage, but the plant is growing up through it now and probably could do with the support when the wind whistles across the yard.  Just wondering if the wire will get too hot for the stems though.  Autumn can be quite hot here.  #backyardseedsaustralia #lebanensecucumber #growfromseeds #homegrownvegetables #cleanfood #lowfoodmiles #sellingourproduce #selfsufficientish #happyhomesteading #urbanhomesteader #homegarden #indiegrowers #sellingseeds

Finally, I finish packing the orders for flower seeds & garlic.  Garlic takes a while to sort & pack, trying to get best sized bulbs to equate to right weight.  All garlic has been smaller bulbs this year.  Drought.  But cloves are still good size.  #heritageseed #creolegarlic #nemesiaflower #backyardseedsaustralia #urbanfarmer#homesteadingaustralia #selfsufficientish #growyourownfood #australiangarlic #buymyseed

Todays vegetable pickings.  Kipfler potatoes, bandicooted baby King Edward potatoes, Bonza apple, various tomatoes, (I am not the keeper of the tomato plants, that is husband's blissbomb), oregon bush / snow peas, 2 rogue brown Italian cipollini onions, French rondo zucchini, wormwood for my wardrobe, & a stray feather from a rosella.  All this, except the apple, (& bird), were grown from seed, by me.  Certified seed potato, bartered onion seeds from Italian friend, & bought heiritage seeds from other indie growers for the rest.  Feels so good being able to do this, feed my family clean food & keep all the old vegetable cultivars going.  #growyourownfood #heritageseeds #backyardseedsaustralia #cleanfood #kipflerpotatoes #frenchzucchini #oregonpeas #wormwoodplant #naturalpestcontrol #feedingmyfamilyforless #slowfoodmovement #nofoodmiles

French lavender seed is back in stock. 'Frenchette' had some newly formed seed pods, so I shook them into a white porcelaine bowl, sifted & handpicked the teensy weensy babies out.  Really good germination rate with these.  Trick is to plant them in seed raising mix, then plant up into little pots, & up again until big enough to plant out in the garden bed.  Once established, they are really tough plants in drought, give a magnificent purple haze of flowers for bees to frolic on.  #frenchlavender #lavanduladentata #droughttolerantplants #heirloomseed #tuscangarden #purpleflowerseverywhere #beesonmyflowers #lavendertea #lavenderjam #lavendercream #lavenderpillow  #lavenderhedge #backyardseedsaustralia #backyardseedsupply #homesteadingaustralia

Alba Cranesbill Geranium.  I harvested seed today.  Hope the fairies didn't mind.  I only took about 60 seeds.  Left the rest to germinate and cover the bank.  #fairiesinmygarden #cranesbillgeranium #cranesbillflower #geranium #originalgeranium #heirloomseed  #backyardseedsaustralia #homesteadingaustralia

Jimmy Nardello pepper is battling on.  Strong winds here today.  I hope the staking is adequate.  This pepper is so hard to find in Australia, and there are new quarantine rules about importing capsicum (& tomatoes). The capsicum & tomatoes we already have are pretty much 'it'' now, no new ones allowed in, for reasons of food security.  So, I savour my seeds, & pass them on the peeps who I know will do the same.  It's all about keeping up the biodiversity & not letting the big supermarkets dictate our food crops.  Let them do that & you are allowing GMO & all other adulterations become the norm.  #saveourseeds #seedbank #homesteadinglife #backyardseedsaustralia #urbanfarmer #growyourownfood #fairfood #slowfood #growingfoodtheitalianway

Hungarian Poppy flower.  Papaver Somniferum.  Seed is blue, flower has 5 single petals, foliage is grey green, with a rosette formation at the base, like a leafy cabbage.  Plant height 80 - 100 cm, width at base 30 -45 cm.  Plant in clumps for self-support.  Beneficial to bees!! They love it.  #flowersforbees  Grows really well in all cool, temperate, hot climates in Australia.  All soil types and terrains tolerated.  Just needs to be planted in Autumn for a spectacular Spring show, with the cold nights of Winter and some frosts giving the best results during the growing phase.  It can be planted in early Spring too, with good results, but needs a few spells of cool weather to get to best height.  Selling seed, link in bio.  Or DM for direct sale.  Australia only, sorry. #papaversomniferum #hungarianbluepoppy #gypsyflower #cutflower #romanceinthegarden #heirloomseed #backyardseedsaustralia #backyardseedsupply  #homesteadingaustralia #beneficialinsectattracting

Garlic is smelling oh so good in the cool of the garage today.  You'd swear I had some lovely salami hanging in there, but no, just crates of garlic, (plus French onions and Golden Shallots). #novampireshere #rojodecastrogarlic #redcreolegarlic #homesteadingaustralia #growyourowngarlic #spanishgarlic #heirloomseed #heirloomgarlic #rosegarlic #rosemaryandgarlic #garlicbreadpizza #winterprepper #permiegarden #backyardseedsaustralia

Zucchini shadows in evening light.  My food garden has been battered by the recent extreme Summer heat.  We have been watering morning and evening to keep it going, because this has been a lot of work to get to this stage, so it would be pointless to just throw our hands in the air and say it's too hot, too much work, let the rabbits and birds have it.  I am not one to give up, anyway.  But we have entered the hottest phase of the season, and the water tank is done for, the level is just above the syphon point on the outlet.  We have now entered the zone of expensive food self-sufficiency.  We've switched over to town supply now, which means a big water bill in 6 weeks.  In time, there will be another water tank collecting off the chook yard roof we are now building.  Meanwhile, we pay for water and hope for rain.  Mulch is not much use in this dry weather, for the wind just lifts it and takes it all away.  That's like throwing $$$ into the air, really, @$17 per bale of compressed sugar cane / pea straw mulch or $75 per cubic metre of hot (unrotted) eucalyptus mulch.  #urbanfarmer #frenchzucchini #growyourownveggies #heirloomseed #backyardseedsaustralia #rainwatergarden  #kitchengarden #sellingseeds #husqvarnarotary
