Today and every day we thank those of you who nurture and care for our mother Earth. Here's a great example that all you need is willingness and dirt to start growing. This fella uses the front planter of his apartment complex to grow straight up guerilla style! He currently has beans and sugar cane he plans to grow corn, tomatoes and zucchini. Once harvest day comes,  he proudly shares his harvests with his neighbors. He is a true Earth day hero. ✊🏽🌱🌍 °

We cleaned up two wheel barrels of borage to make room for all of the goodness that Summer crops bring. We're still debating if we should plant loofah this year since we skipped growing it last Summer.  Maybe a trellis tunnel of loofah? 👍🏼😉

Without realizing it, our winter crops were a beautiful homage to #prince and @noahmdavis . 💜 Today I harvested purple cabbage,  peas and kohlrabi. °

So many shifts within the Earth and on Earth which allow for opportunities for new growth.  Ain't it crazy how that works? Pushing through the soil and on to the light. °

It's true. During trying times is when I tend to immerse myself  the most in growing. It's like going back home, it's seeing survival in action.

Hey all 🖐🏽 wish us luck, we're entering our last cabbage of the season to our homies Long Beach Fresh's event. The competition is tough ya'll! Nonetheless, we're having a great time with our fellow growers.
*Update*
We didn't win, but had a good time. Maybe next year. 👍🏼💛

Iris said that she wants some of the vegetable stir-fry we're making for dinner. That's if these super sweet peas we harvested today make it to the wok. °

#throwbackthursday to when I took my students around their neighborhood in the San Pedro housing projects to find and document growing spaces. To our delight,  we found many people using their available space to grow a variety of herbs, flowers, some small fruit trees like papaya and vegetables.  Proving that a garden can be anywhere if you have the willingness to grow. This fella pictured here, has so much talent with every medium he touched. I won't be surprised if he turns out to be one of the top artists of his time. °

From seed to seed, kinda like the Phoenix bird. °

This is what a purple cauliflower looks like when it is left on the plant and it flowers. You can then let it dry out and harvest the seeds. °

Enoki grown by a husband and wife team in Riverside, CA. Enoki mushrooms are native to China, Japan and Korea. All through Asian history, physicians considered Enoki shares most of the health advantages of other Asian mushrooms, which includes its overall immune enhancing qualities, anti-cancer abilities, helping in liver illnesses, stomach issues, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure levels as well as anti-aging. They can be enjoyed raw in salads, soups or cooked in a stir-fry.°

This morning I woke up with a bitter sweet feeling in my heart. Several months ago, my grandmother passed on from this life and last night, I saw her again. In my dream I remember seeing a field of nopales in the distance. Similar to the ones my grandfather had  tucked in the back of his backyard garden passing the fig tree and next to some mexican herbs. I asked her if she was well and she said yes, with a peaceful look on her face. When I tried to hug her, I woke up. So close.  I honor my grandparents and my ancestors by listening to my heart and nurturing our land by growing. Which also allows me to in a way, hug them. °
How do you connect with your ancestors? °

Spring is approaching and the days are getting warmer. We are currently working on our soil and getting our beds topped-off with compost to prepare them for all of the goodness to come. We have left some of our bolted broccoli for the bees and letting them go to seed to preserve for next winter. How many of you find it a bit difficult to remove  bolted veggies because of how much bees enjoy it? 🙋🏽‍♀️ °

I take this horseshoe I found in the compost bin as a sign of a good season to come. Growing food is a beautiful metaphor for life itself, it's time to add good amendments and begin the regenerative process to encourage new, stronger growth. °

Every season we try to grow something that we hadn't grown before.  This season, we picked #kohlrabi and it's starting to show it's beautiful self! If you haven't had kohlrabi before, pick some up next time you see it.  You can eat the leaves attached raw or cooked like any greens. The smaller bulbs tend to be more tender and flavorful, but the large ones are also fine for cooking and eating. In taste and texture, kohlrabi reminds me of peeled broccoli stems with a bit of peppery radish thrown in. °

Every season we try to grow something that we hadn't grown before. This season, we picked #kohlrabi and it's starting to show it's beautiful self! If you haven't had kohlrabi before, pick some up next time you see it. You can eat the leaves attached raw or cooked like any greens. The smaller bulbs tend to be more tender and flavorful, but the large ones are also fine for cooking and eating. In taste and texture, kohlrabi reminds me of peeled broccoli stems with a bit of peppery radish thrown in. °

The last of our cauliflower harvest and the beginning of our brussel sprout one. Nature is so wonderful right? °

Sharing is caring and oh, do we love to share our harvests with our human friends and our non-human ones. By letting some of our plants go to seed in this case broccoli, we nurture the way plants come to an end by also providing beautiful blooms for our hardworking bees. Once these blooms dry out, we can then harvest the seeds for a new season of growth. Did you know that these beautiful clusters of yellow blooms are edible? Their scent is very mild and has more of a vegetal aroma rather than floral. Broccoli flowers have a flavor reminiscent of broccoli leaves, peppery with a sweet honeyed finish. °

Gotta love the resilience of Borage, plant it once and it will keep re-seeding itself over and over again. There's so much to learn from the Earth if you just look and listen closely. °
