Dreamy drive out of Napa this morning. Mustard blooming among the vineyards is my favorite. Love seeing cover crops at work ๐ŸŒผโœจโ˜€๏ธ

Zurple punch - zkittles x purple punch. Every pheno has an intense lemon smell. A few pair it with fruit punch and others have even more citrus added to the mix. The resin production is very heavy. Several will be high yield as well. @inhouse6290 #inhousegenetics #zurplepunch #medicalmarijuana #medicalcannabis #craftcannabis #farmsnotpharms #growyourownmedicine #notill #notillgardening #knf #koreannaturalfarming #plantsfeedingplants #organic #organiccannabis #livingsoil #livingorganicsoil #companionplants #covercrop #thc #marijuana #cannabis #420 #710 #mmar #macro #macromob #acmpr #cloudsovercanada #humblefarmers

The green manure germination is looking ๐Ÿ‘Œ. Green manures are important for all farmers to include in their crop rotation to build healthy soil (and thus crops) and break disease cycles. Green manures are grown for about a month (or just before they flower) and turned into the soil to decompose for a month to: ๐ŸŒฑ Increase organic matter, earthworms and beneficial micro-organisms ๐ŸŒฑ Increase the soil's available nitrogen and moisture retention ๐ŸŒฑ Stabilise the soil to prevent erosion ๐ŸŒฑ Bring deep minerals to the surface and breaking up hardpans ๐ŸŒฑ Provide habitat, nectar and pollen for bees, beneficial insects and reducing populations of pests๐ŸŒฑ Improve water, root and air penetration in the soil ๐ŸŒฑ Smother persistent weeds. It also helps us grow nutrient dense crops, where each veggie has a larger quantity of a broad spectrum of different minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. You can see why I'm pretty stoked on a perfect germination. #covercrop #greenmanure #soilhealth #healthysoilhealtlyyou #nutritientdensefarming #organicfarming

24 hr after transplant and already got topped, still happy though. Little burnt leaf action from being in the cloner without food, I'll remove those shortly when the branches get a tad bit bigger. #livingsoilgrown #livingsoil #organic #beyondorganic #permaculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #soilfoodweb #soilfoodwebfamily #notill #notillarmy #grasscitygrowmies #probioticfarmersalliance #grassachusetts #hashachusetts #massachusetts #nematodes #protozoa #bacteria #fungi #amoeba #microarthropods #worms #feedthesoil #nottheplant #mulch #covercrop #companionplants #soil

To say lotus throws down would be the understatement of the year. You want to talk about gigantic frosty nuggets that stink like tropical Hash fruit. Ooooweeee these ladies are insane!! I was pretty curious how long they would take. And for the 5 ladies I had I think 10-11 weeks will do just right.

This may just look like some dead grass and, well, thatโ€™s because it is! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Itโ€™s much more than that, though. These are oats that I sowed last Fall, as a cover crop. The beauty of oats is that they grow very fast and, when densely seeded, cover the soil well. Oats are in the grass family and grasses are known for their fibrous root systems. This makes them great at preventing erosion, scavenging nutrients in the soil and adding organic matter. Another reason I like oats is because they winter-kill in my zone, as you can see. Since they canโ€™t survive Winter, that means I donโ€™t have to worry about cutting them back or killing them in the Spring. Do you grow cover crops in your garden?

Here is a good example for newer growers to differentiate male plants from female plants. The first pic is a male flower at week 2 of 12 hour light cycles. The second picture is the female showing her stigmas or commonly known as pistols. Male flowers looks like small banana clusters and take weeks to fully develop and release pollen. If you are unsure give it another week but donโ€™t wait too long or else you will be picking seeds for weeks ๐Ÿ˜† #notill #notillgardening #dgcgarden #freshwater #cleangreen #cleancannabis #cannabiscommunity #cannabis #organicgardening #indoorplants #botanicalgardens #livingsoils #livingsoilgrown #organiccannabis #nopesticides #smartpots #dgc #growtalk #notillcannabis #mycorrhizae #mycelium #notillfarming #fungi #covercrop #mulching #greenmanure #compost

Just a look at some of the beneficial aspects as well as information and studies on the compounds with in Coconut Water (liquid endosperm) and their effects on microorganism. This does not include many of the vitamins such as vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin B2, B3, B5, B6 and trace amounts of B1. Also, some of the minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, iodine, sulfur, and manganese. As well as other trace minerals, phytonutrients and other growth promoting chemicals. Does anyone find benefit to using Coconut Water in their feeding regime? This pairs with my previous post about Aloe Vera. #notill #composttea #livingsoil #soilfoodweb #koreannaturalfarming #coconutwater #organicnutrientย  #fermentedplantjuice #covercrop #nosynthetics #organicnutrients #notillarmy #notillgardening #notillfarming #soilfoodwebgrown #teamingwithmicrobes #notillcannabis #probioticcannabis #notillrevolutionย  #recycledorganiclivingsoil #teamingwithnutrients #seedsprouttea #organiccannabis #craftcannabisย  #fermentedfruitjuice #nobottlednutes #koreannaturefarming #feedthesoil #cannabiscommunity

Edible Cover Crop | Have you ever seen the nitrogen nodules on the roots of a fava/faba plant when pulled from the earth? These important fertilizers are put back in to the soil when a rotation crop is planted in between traditional plantings. I experienced this as a gardening parent in my children's school, lead by a master biodynamic gardener. The foliage is also tasty! I picked up these fava greens with my friend (pictures here) at Gospel Flat Farms earlier this week. The leaves have the flavor of the legumes that come later. I add to salads for added flavor, color and nutrition. . . Etta Medium Tote now comes in Denim. First batch sold out quickly, pre-order yours. . . #gospelflatfarm #fava #covercrop #farmtotable #marketbag #EttaFood&PicnicTote #eatlocal #lifestyle #farmstand #carringandsharingfood #waldorfeducation #sustainablefarming #sustainableproducts #madeinusa #farmersmarketinspo

A cover crop is a crop planted primarily to manage soil erosion, soil fertility, soil quality, water, weeds, pests, diseases, biodiversity and wildlife in an agroecosystem, an ecological system managed and largely shaped by humans across a range of intensities to produce food, feed, or fiber. Cover crops are of interest in sustainable agriculture as many of them improve the sustainability of agroecosystem attributes and may also indirectly improve qualities of neighboring natural ecosystems. Farmers choose to grow and manage specific cover crop types based on their own needs and goals, influenced by the biological, environmental, social, cultural, and economic factors of the food system in which they operate. ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐Ÿต๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ #crops #foodie #vancouvereats #eatclean #fresh #produce #organicbrothers #healthyliving #farmer #produce #greenhouse #organicfarming #organicfarming #organic #lovefood #growing #sunflower #garden #nutrition #eat #local #covercrop #food #natural #farm #soil #seatosky #god #love #nature
