Happy little #miningbee collecting pollen and showing me it’s cutest side😂. #evokingexposures .
.
What is there not to like about mining bees?! Absolutely nothing! They are amazing creatures🐝🖤💛🖤. Tiny little solitary beautiful docile insects. Fantastic pollinators, great little soil aerators,  basically any real gardeners dream insect!! .
.
Well unfortunately for these tiny #beneficialinsects they face population decline(same as other beneficial pollinator insects). Breaks my heart that people would choose having the perfect “weed”  free lawn, or perfect looking produce, over these little ones lives. .
.
The use of insecticides to kill the so called “bad insects” and the poisonous commercial sprays used to kill funguses etc, also kill the pollinators. That’s why I am against using poisons at all costs! I want to leave my children a world worth living in!! Please consider natural organic ways to garden. Weeds can be killed with boiling water, salt and pure vinegar. Bugs can be killed with many beneficial bugs. Praying mantis, lady bugs, lacewing larvae, and fly predators. .
.
Let’s give these guys a fighting chance! In turn they will pollinate your flowers, fruits and vegetables. .

Stopped by Pike's today for these bad boys. And yes, I KNOW they have free ones tomorrow but this needed to happen today. I read our favorite book, Some Bugs, to my son's preschool class this afternoon. I showed them this tub o' ladybugs much to their amusement. Then, we came home to release them throughout the gardens. Of COURSE he made me put some unfortunate souls into his custom built bug houses. 😂😂😂 How could I say no?..... I couldn't because he kept leaning onto my back as I tried to contain escapees with each new dropoff. We discussed how ladybugs eat all of the "bad bugs" and *maybe* his bug houses lack a proper refrigerator. 
Oh! And a new bearded iris opened! Can hear baby peeps in the nest at our front door. Life is good. Just busy.

Side note-If you live near a Pike's nursery and score me some ladybugs, I will trade you fresh flowers! Or eggs! 💞💞💞💞 #goodbugs #badbugs #womenwhofarm #farmerflorist #momlife #beneficialinsects

This is @bibliophyll taking over for a fun filled week focused on the wonderful and wacky world of insects!
After all that talk in my previous post about those voracious Japanese beetles, I think it’s good to remember that not all beetles are pesky hungry munchers on a mission to devour and defoliate. Some beetles, like this little beauty, are actually beneficial pollinators! This bee mimicking beetle is one of many flower chafer beetles that belong to the subfamily Cetoniinae. It’s important to note that this is a large subfamily with roughly 4,000 members, not all of which are pollinators.
Certain beetle species aren’t the only pollinators that are often overlooked. Numerous species of wasps, midges, flies, and ants are just a few of the many other pollinating pals out there!

Attracting orchard bees requires 3 important elements from us & nature.⠀
1) Spring flower blossoms.⠀
2) A suitable bee house.⠀
3) Access to dirt, mud, or clay.

We got some praying mantis eggs to help with pest control in our garden and yesterday they hatched. First picture shows what their egg sack looks like. I've seen these egg sacks in the wild before but never knew what they were from. Now I will know if I ever see them again. It holds about 200 tiny little mantis and once they hop away they are hard to find again.

I’ve read so much research lately re:companion planting and the benefits of certain plants growing alongside others. It’s interesting that much of the available information on companion planting is based on European gardens and not necessarily applicable to our Aussie backyards. Sometimes I feel we can do all the research in the world but come out none the wiser. Just as the saying goes, you live and learn, nothing beats actually getting your hands dirty (literally) and finding out exactly what works and what doesn’t in your garden. So, marigolds, I don’t know if you are keeping nasty insects from eating the leaves of my Pak Choy, or if you’re really adding nematodes (whatever they are) but what I do know is that you’re beautiful to look at, butterfly’s love to fly around you and the parsley seems to think you’re pretty ok to live next to 😍#gardeningaustralia #companionplanting #trialanderror #gardeningislife #gardeningismytherapy #groworganic #growyourownfood #ourvegiepatch #lockyervalley #trygardening #sustainableliving #healthyfood #marigold #beneficialinsects

Check out these amazing and wonderful little creatures we’ve stumbled across recently in the orchard ( or on a plate 😂) the first is wattle cup caterpillar! Next I’m not sure, if you know please tell me. I’ve found a blue bee, which are solitary bees, it’s colour was amazing, I didn’t want to disturb it by getting too close, they live in little nooks and crannies happily on their own. We also didn’t want to scare off the beautiful frogmouth owl and our little friends the leaf creatures seem to love my daughter and here bright happy room 😍 #nofilterneeded #beneficialinsects #biodynamicfarming

We are at Solvang farmers market today with a beautiful set of peppers. This particular plant is not coming- we are keeping it for selfish reasons. You see, the aphids that were on it earlier in the spring have all been parasitized by a tiny wasp. The wasp lays its eggs inside the aphids and the larvae eat their fill until they molt into adults leaving the aphid mummy behind. This is why we never use any kind of insecticide in our nursery, there is always something better going on if you wait patiently and observe carefully. Our sacrifice will be a few plants that never make it to market... small price to pay.

5 Stable Tips For April's Earth Day
.
Being a horse lover, and many of us lovers of the outdoors in general, we know how much our horse sports can impact our environment. If your horse isn’t grazing 23 hours a day, and I don’t know any of my horse friends that are… then they are not in their natural environment. We put them in stalls, apply pesticides, lotions to make them shine, and spray chemicals on our pastures for improved quality of forage. There’s many ways to reduce your horses “hoof print” on our planet that are super easy and cost effective too!
.
As horse people, we naturally have a larger carbon footprint as we take on the responsibility of our horses footprints (or hoofprints as this case may be). Nonetheless, the 3 Rs still apply and in order of importance we should always strive to Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. The more we reduce, the less we’ll need to reuse, and even less that we’ll have to recycle. Read all 5 stable tips - LINK IN BIO!

This is California Sage. A native plant to our area that requires very little water once established. We have it all over our #permaculture #foodforest because it is one of the best native plants to attract beneficial insects. In the spring it is covered with honeybees, bumblebees, and butterflies. The sage can also be used to flavor food and make tea. Native plants that attract beneficial insects are key to producing a permaculture landscape. What native plants do you have in your yard that attract the good bugs? We would love to know! #growyourownfood #sustainablefoodsystem #foodismedicine #harmonywithnature #beneficialplants #beneficialinsects #harmonywithnature #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativeliving #regenerativelifestyle #regenerativelives #regenerativechallenge

Your Polinators and Beneficial Bugs need a home in your garden! Our Beneficial Bug Hotels are a fun and practical addition to your home garden. They are perfect for kids to learn about organic farming, predatory insects, and polinators. The hotels harbor beneficial bugs that keep insects such as aphids off our plants.

Your Polinators and Beneficial Bugs need a home in your garden! Our Beneficial Bug Hotels are a fun and practical addition to your home garden. They are perfect for kids to learn about organic farming, predatory insects, and polinators. The hotels harbor beneficial bugs that keep insects such as aphids off our plants. Polinators use the hotels to develop from egg to adulthood, where they can facilitate the reproduction of flowering plants! Help host these essential species right in your garden!

Ladybird on a mission! Hoovering up aphid pests galore on the dill starts 💪. This is one of the whole purposes of organic farming and as there haven't been any pesticides here for 7 years we notice more and more ladybirds and hoverflies all the time. Class

Also, pretty hypnotic to watch 🤓

I dont use any chemical pesticides in my greenhouses or gardens. I used to be physically petrified of spiders but over the years have come full circle and tolerate them and now can appreciate and work in close proximity to these cute lil hatchlings I found right on the corner of my soil mixing tray. The only time I flip my shit over spiders now is when I walk face first into a web. Which happens more than I like. #greenhousehelpers #freehelp #orbweaver #yelloworbweaver #beneficialinsects #pestmanagement #organicgardening #spiders #spiderbabies #cuties

Oh you know, just putting bugs in the fridge. ;) Last year was a year of epic bugs in the garden. This year, we're working on prevention with beneficial nematodes, microscopic organisms that kill the baddies by poisoning them from the inside. Nematodes kill anything that wintered over in the soil so grubs, beetle pupae, eggs, etc. We ordered from @arbicoorganics  who has an extensive array of beneficial insects and organic options.

Cleaned and restocked Mason 🐝 houses by the garden and blueberries. These tiny solitary (no big nests) don’t sting humans like the vast majority of our native bees and get to work in cooler weather than “honey bees”. #ecofriendly #ecogardening #nativeplantnursery #beefriendlygarden #beefriendlyflowers #beefriendlyplants #beneficialinsects

The herb, borage, germinated in my vegetable garden last night. Borage is a great plant for pollinator gardens. Its nectaries refill within minutes, so the bees keep on coming back for more. Their small, twinkly, star-shaped blue flowers are beautiful and tasty in salads. The entire plant is edible, but it does grow to be a 3-4 foot sprawling mess. My friend, Patty Ghertner, an expert on raising bees and creating pollinator gardens, taught me all of this. Both the marigolds and the borage will attract beneficial insects. The insects they attract will help keep the hornworm and aphid population down. Sadly, they do not do a thing to dissuade the🐿. Also, tomatoes self-pollinate, so the bees you attract aren't necessary for their pollination, but they do help the squash plants and other veggies in the garden. #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #backyardgarden #urbanfarming #pollinator #pollinatorplants #beneficialinsects #borage #herb #tomato #tomatoes #tomatogarden #marigolds #nectar #nectary

3x 50 liters off soil mixed with @higherorganics

150liters mixed and bagged up for the cooking process to begin, it will be bagged up for a minimum of 1 week and a maximum of 4 weeks the longer you leave it the better. This stops any burn from the Fertiliser. 
So convenient not having to work out ratios and sitting there mixing different ferts, with @higherorganics theres no need for that! 15 mins to thoroughly mix 150 liters, like the sound off that? Dm us for a sample pack, dm us to make an order, we ship worldwide.

Did you know that @higherorganics feeds a variety of plant species, about to mix up 150 liters of soil to 1 whole pack of @higherorganics Fertiliser, I will be mixing up 50 liters x3 so that's 5 scoops to every 50 liters of soil, once the mix is completed I will then bag up the soil and leave for a minimum of 1 week and up to a maximum of 4 weeks (the longer you leave it the better) and let it cook (this is the cooking process we recommend using @higherorganics) then once all plants are potted I will only water them for the first 12-14 days, after that you can use a liquid organic Fertiliser or a organic compost tea. If your plants are sensitive to Fertiliser and nutrients then you can use @higherorganics at half strength. Have a blessed day people. 💚 for heights to your success use @higherorganics

I was watching this Rove beetle hunt and eat spring tails for a solid half hour LOL spring tails are beneficial to the soil but they also keep the predator bugs well fed as well as you can tell from This Fatty 🦂🐞🦂🐞 - Also Fade Has Begun!!! Can’t wait to watch these fan leafs yellow out as the plant metabolizes the last bits of the nutrients stored in them making up for a Great Tasty Harvest 🍒🍷👑🍻 #Delicaseeds #Cannabis #CanadianCannabis #LivingSoil #GrowYourOwn #CannabisCommunity #beneficialinsects

Weed or wonder herb?  When clearing the garden I always leave a few Dandelion plants to do their thing. This particular specimen has survived the winter and provides an early spring source of nectar for pollinating insects.  It withstands extreme cold and heat, frost and drought... It’s a hardy fellow. 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼 This pesky ‘weed’ has numerous medicinal benefits, the leaves are rich in vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber... Somewhat intense in salads but, when added to juice, they provide a bitter tonic to aid digestive health and help to support the liver detox pathways.  Roots are often taken as a diuretic as they help clear unwanted bacteria from the urinary tract and reduce sugar deposition in the kidneys.  They also stimulate gall bladder bile secretion, thus promoting better fat metabolism.  So, next time you are ‘pulling weeds’ consider saving some flower heads for tea or adding a few leaves into your salads and juices. 🌱

Giant Dahlia buds in the autumn sunlight.
.
I forgot to put stakes in the ground when I planted the tubers and it was one of those jobs that I just kept on forgetting. The plants grew like wild fire- and of course snapped off in the night during strong winds. The stems these plants grow are so heavy but so delicate and they literally snap anytime they’re moved around.
.
I’ve staked them now and they’re throwing out new growth from where they’ve snapped off so hopefully it won’t be too much of a disaster of a Dahlia season after all. If you’re new to growing Dahlias- stake them!
.
Why grow flowers in a vegetable garden you might ask? Great question! A variety of flowers keep the birds and insects happy- they bring bees, and welcome the insect predators into the garden that eat the pests (for example red lady bugs eat aphids, and birds eat cabbage moth caterpillars). Flowers also create a buffet of pollen and nectar for bees and other insects while they pollinate the garden- and if there’s no pollination there’s no vegetables.
.
I also have a soft spot for flowers and get a bit over excited buying tubers, bulbs and seeds. The great part of that of course of that tubers and bulbs multiply each season and you can harvest seeds from flowers, multiplying the quantity of flowers in your garden for free, or swapping and gifting of course. It really doesn’t take much to get started👌 #mybackyardharvest #growyourown #flowers #beneficialinsects

UNEARTHING TUESDAY: Garden work on my day off of school. This is what happens when you let Coreopsis go to seed. It goes cray cray! Thinking of planting some Yarrow to compliment it. I've got a few weeks to go though as Mother Nature might not be done dropping frost here in zone 6.

As I was dividing up some of the Coreopsis, I noticed a ton of earthworms doing their thing. So important to see them moving through the soil. 
Made a border out of river rock. Check out the last two pics. It rained just as I finished! River rock is so pretty when it gets wet. .

My daughter and hubby found these in the garden last night. They counted at least 8 baby praying mantises in this one plant. We find them here every year. .  They are soo cute and soooooo very tiny.  Seeing these in our yard makes us happy.  They are a great bug to have around. They eat beetles, crickets and other garden pests. 🙌🙌. #prayingmantis #beneficialinsects #supercute #bugbaby

Lady Beetles (Harmonia axyridis) in different life stages and on the hunt for aphids and scales.
Most lady beetles, including this species, are predaceous as both larvae and adults. Young lady beetle larvae usually pierce and suck the contents from their prey. Older larvae and adults chew and consume their entire prey. #ladybeetle #ladybug #beneficial #beneficialinsects #organicpestcontrol #organic #biologicalcontrol #pest #farmersmarket #ogpfarm

Radish flowers. Did you know you can eat the flower pods? The entire plant of a radish is edible. The radish might taste horrible once it flowers, but if you wait you’ll get a tasty young fresh seed pod. If you let the seed pod get too mature then it too will be unpalatable. Try the young seed pods in a salad to get a little spice. Side note: radishes can be used as a trap crop to draw flea beetles away from other plants that you desire the most. I hear they also repel certain pests when allowed to flower, but I can’t say so from experience.
