If your not already following @alikigardens get on over there and give them a follow and check out the amazing #organiclivingsoil they have been creating.  I have been using the #freyjasmix and dont see how I could ever go back. 🤙🦠💣💥💚🌱
Paul really knows his stuff and these guys make a top notch quality soil. Go see for yourself 👌💪 #Repost from @alikigardens with @regram.app ...

“A #covercrop is planted to manage #soilerosion #soilfertility #soilquality #water #weeds #pests #diseases #biodiversity and wildlife in an #agroecosystem—an #ecologicalsystem managed and shaped by humans. Cover crops may be an off-season crop planted after harvesting the #cashcrop. The cover crop may grow over winter.
Although cover crops can perform multiple functions in an agroecosystem simultaneously, they are often grown for the sole purpose of preventing soil erosion. Soil erosion is a process that can irreparably reduce the productive capacity of an agroecosystem. 🌱 Dense cover crop stands physically slow down the velocity of rainfall before it contacts the soil surface, preventing soil splashing and erosive surface runoff. ☔️Additionally, vast cover crop root networks help anchor the soil in place and increase #soil porosity, creating suitable #habitat networks for soil #macrofauna. 💩 It keeps the enrichment of the soil good for the next few years.
Cover crops can also improve soil quality by increasing soil #organic matter levels through the input of cover crop #biomass over time. Increased soil organic matter enhances soil structure, as well as the water and nutrient holding and buffering capacity of soil. 🧪 It can also lead to increased soil carbon sequestration, which has been promoted as a strategy to help offset the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. ♻️
Soil quality is managed to produce optimum circumstances for crops to flourish. The principal factors of soil quality are soil salination, pH, microorganism balance and the prevention of soil contamination.” -Wiki 📝 Learn more on How To Grow Your Own Cannabis At Home Visit Link In Bio www.boomspharm.com 💻👨🏼‍🌾 #livingsoil #beyondorganic #growroom #growtent #cannabiscommunity #growyourown #howtogrowcannabis #adaptandgrow #boomspharm

Biochar - what’s that? It’s basically the charcoal leftover from careful pyrolysis of tree biomass. USU extension is trying to find out how it can benefit field crops in Utah. We have four trials in north, central, and southern Utah to test how it affects soil health, and alfalfa, corn, and wheat yield and water use efficiency. Stay tuned for results from this season.

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. ✊🏽🌱🌍 °

Thermophilic activity in action!! Check out that heat! How hot do you think it is? Slide over for temperature of pile. A thermophilic microbe thrives at temperatures between 106 and 252. They are suggested to have been amoung the earliest bacteria. Found in geothermally heated regions of the Earth such as hot springs and deep sea hydrothermal vents. Also present in decaying matter like compost and peat bogs.

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? 👍🏼😉

Sorry about the upload error on this graphic earlier this week. Here’s the full image. "THE NATION THAT DESTROYS ITS SOIL DESTROYS ITSELF." - FDR. The massive use of toxic Roundup herbicide on vast GMO monocultures across North America is destroying fertile soils. Monsanto's "gift" to farmers was a chemical addiction that has put the health of our soil, and our nation, in a downward spiral. Boycott Roundup. Boycott GMOs.

We had always planned on getting bees for this farm. But we wanted to take our time and do it right. This is our first step into a new and fascinating world. There’s so much to learn and we’ve started with the right people. Thanks to dedicated beekeepers Daniela and Marco who’s knowledge is evident in the health of their bees and in the quality of their honey using rigorous organic and biodynamic methods .

Definetly not a glamour shot📸

Today's question- 
Actually, it's from several days ago, but who's keeping track 😏

To stake or not to stake🤔

Recently I was asked if a transplanted Redbud tree should be staked. In my typical off the cuff fashion, I said no. 
I felt the tree would be okay because the planting depth and circumference of the hole are more critical. I'm pretty sure I expressed that because I remember giggling as I said it. Obviously, I'm immature. 
One school of thought is-

Staking creates a weaker trunk because the tree is artificially protected from environmental pressures. 
The other says to stake the tree giving it time to develop a better root base and get established. 
Turns out maybe it should have been staked🤷🏻‍♀️ We had a significant wind event causing widespread power outages, tornadoes, and damage to trees🌬🌳

Come down to Wongawallan today support your local business's and get some beautiful farm grade rich, Humus loaded Biologically active compost - AKA rocket fuel 💥 
Tonights the full moon(9pm) and we have had some great rain, so the channels of fertility will be opened and flowing straight into the plant, keep your pots moist if you are pot gardeners!

Perfect time to hit it with liquified compost with a scoop of kelp in a watering can. 
1scoop kelp
3 handfulls compost (stirred, agitated and sieved)

Make sure to use rainwater to keep the biology alive, or let your tapwater sit for a few hours in the sun before using.

Avoid planting any seeds for the next 48hr.

Much 🖤 happy gardening!

We will be building a silvopasture sheep and chicken system, along with a huge 20m compost bay, that not only generates compost, but generates a food source for the laying hens, and in turn the hens get cycled through each bay at the right time to aerate the pile. 🌻

Tonights the full moon(9pm) and we have had some great rain, so the channels of fertility will be opened and flowing straight into the plant, keep your pots moist if you are pot gardeners!

Perfect time to hit it with liquified compost with a scoop of kelp in a watering can.
1scoop kelp
3 handfulls compost (stirred, agitated and sieved)

Make sure to use rainwater to keep the biology alive, or let your tapwater sit for a few hours in the sun before using.

Avoid planting any seeds for the next 48hr.

Much 🖤 happy gardening!

We will be building a silvopasture sheep and chicken system, along with a huge 20m compost bay, that not only generates compost, but generates a food source for the laying hens, and in turn the hens get cycled through each bay at the right time to aerate the pile. 🌻

ГОТОВИМ СЕМЕНА ДЛЯ СМЕШАННЫХ ПОСЕВОВ
Preparing seeds for mixed crops

Вот так примерно готовится смесь культур,предназначенная для смешанных  посевов. Цель -  повышение эффективности усвоения  солнечной радиации на квадратный метр посева,  для получения семенного материала, получение высокобелкового фуражного корма и сидерации с одновременным повышением её плодородия и получения зелёного корма в позднеосенний период.  Сейчас мы высеваем её в первый срок, в июле высеем во второй  срок как предшественник под картофель и зерновые. Культуры посеянные вместе, меньше болеют, их не нужно удобрять и защищать пестицидами. В смешанных посевах вызревает больше семян и зелёной массы. Почти как в природе... #плодородиепочвы#soilfertility#повышениеплодородияпочвы#soilfertilityenhancementсидерацияпочвы#soilgreening#летниепосевы#смесьдлясидерациипочвы#cмешанныепосевы#mixedcrops#экологическоеземледелие#ecologicalfarming#органическоеземледелие#organicfarming#

I get asked a lot of questions. Over the next few weeks I'm going to share my answers with all of you. 
Here's todays Q&A about how to make and use #comfrey concentrate for fertilizer. 
If I'm going to extract it-
I fill whatever container I have and put in enough water to cover the comfrey. Sometimes if I'm feeling extra motivated, I add some vinegar to speed along the extraction process. 
That's it. Nothing fancy or elaborate. 
I use that concentrate at 1-2oz/gallon of fertilizer/water- whichever I might be using at that time. If I feel it's not as concentrated as I would like it, I add 3-4 oz. 
I have yet to do any straining of the concentrate. Even though I macerate the leaves somewhat, it has not been an issue for me. If you're running it through an irrigation system, you might want to strain it. Just a thought
Lately, I've been just chopping it up in place. I seem to have turned into one of those gardeners that prescribe to a modified Ruth Stout Method and let it go where it wants and work around it.

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

Bamboo, wattle and daub, soon to be clay plastered compost toilet 💩

This will mark our 10th compost loo! Yay for humanure because we got a lot of it. Good thing we have plenty of trees that will love it 🌿

If you haven't read Joseph Jenkin's @joseph.jenkins book The Humanure Handbook you should definitely check it out and try installing one for your home! They are a great, sustainable way of dealing with human waste.

Never used a compost loo and fancy a little adventure in the jungle? Visit our website, link in bio, to find all the info you need for coming for a stay.

I am currently giggling away to myself as I take this picture. My very kind, retired farmer neighbour is currently in a wrestling match with his rototiller trying to get his garden plot tilled. I am here with my broadfork prepping beds. He is trying very hard to offer me the services of his rototiller so i dont have to do all this "hard work". Not going to lie, after hauling a a dump truck's worth of compost by willbarrow and now on my 3rd bed of the day broadforking, the rototiller is a bit inviting...but I won't take it and here is my very short version of why. When we rototil we wreck the microbiome of the soil which in turn does not make our soil as fertile. When we broadfork, we loosen the soil and incorporate new compost but we don't disturb the microbiome, therefore  we continue to have a living, very fertile soil. Rototillers can have their place but we are a no till farm so I will continue my slow and steady broadforking... #soil #microbiome #soilfertility #smallscalefarming #growingfood #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #homesteading #gardeningtip #gardentips #localfood #kamloops #explorekamloops

Todays belated #agronomyweek post is as long as some soils are deep

Bad joke, but what can I say, it's been a long week🤷🏻‍♀️ •There are between 20,000-70,000 different types of soil in the U.S •Making up those different soil types are 12 soil orders used in the soil taxonomy system •Each order is based on one or two dominant physical, chemical, or biological properties 
Gelisols: Frozen
Histosols: Organic, wet
Spodosols: Sandy, acidic
Andisols: Volcanic ash
Oxisols: Very weathered
Vertisols: Shrink and swell
Aridisols: Very dry
Ultisols: Weathered
Mollisols: Deep, fertile
Alfisols: Moderately weathered
Inceptisols: Slightly developed (young)
Entisols: Newly formed

Each state and territory in the United States has a representative soil

Todays #agronomy #fact 🍓Strawberry Onions 👊

If you haven't had one, and chances are if you're from the north you haven't, you need to find out how to get some! Or experiment and grow some for yourself

A few year back I got to spend the day on a strawberry farm in Plant City Florida and had my first one. I've been longing for more ever since

What makes an onion a STRAWBERRY ONION ❓

Planting #onions strategically around and in a field helps create a more efficient way to pick berries

Onions pungent smell maybe able to help reduce insect pressure

Strawberries can provide shade for the tender bulb of the onion helping to moderate soil temps but not completely shade the onion out

Last but not least the sweetness of the #strawberry and the crisp flavor of a spring onion come together for a flavor that is out of this world

Check out the DOWNLOAD section link in bio for a custom strawberry fertilizer program 🍓🍓

A new passive swale, on contour, built easily on a nice day, without machines, from dropped branches and a hedge we took down at the end of winter. This swale will catch and hold blowing leaves and other organic matter and water, and will provide habitat for forest creatures, mushrooms and lichens on it’s journey to becoming dark rich soil.

#Lupinus, 🌸 commonly known as #lupin or #lupine, is a genus of flowering #plants 🌱 in the legume family. Like #beans and #peas these beautiful perennials also #fixnitrogen, which means they can host #bacteria 🦠 that takes #nitrogen (N) from the air and converts it nodules on their roots. Lupines can be used in several different ways to improve your soil and garden. They can be used as a cover crop on their own or mixed with other plants like mustard or oats. This is great for improving the #soil in vegetable beds. It improves #soilfertility, adds needed free #nitrogen from the #air, increases the #organicmatter content and improves the #soilstructure. #healthysoil #soilbuilder #agriculture #garden #plants #soil #soilfoodweb #spring2019

I smothered lawn grass in this spot by laying down paper feed bags and leaving them for a season or two. Though the grass was nice on the feet, it offered little else, and the soil in this area remained mostly unimproved. Now, miraculously, as they do, these docks and thistles have moved in. They will grow as big as small trees in one season, feed insects, drive roots deep into the earth, and prepare the soil for the next lives to come.

I smothered lawn grass in this spot by laying down paper feed bags and leaving them for a season or two. Though the grass was nice on the feet, it offered little else, and the soil in this area remained mostly unimproved. Now, miraculously, as they do, these docks and thistles have moved in. They will grow as big as small trees in one season, feed insects, drive roots deep into the earth, and prepare the soil for the next lives to come.

I just realized last week was #agronomyweek 
How could an #agronomist miss that🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ To commemorate the occasion, the rest of this week I'll post some interesting agronomy facts & questions

This question comes from a textbook called Soils and Soils Management by A.F. Gustafson published in 1941

It may seem like it would be dated, but is FULL valuable information still relevant even in today's modern agriculture 🚜

So here's today's question-

WHAT ARE TWO FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE SOIL COLOR? ⛰

Too critical maybe? There is a portion of my parents' garden which I am not really proud of.
In just 2 years my mum's chicken flock left a part of the garden in a desolate state with widespread bare soil and erosion.
Chickens are now anymore allowed here and grass is coming back, hopefully with lot of worms.
I hope to see a lot of grass and wild flowers this summer to balance again its soil fertility. .

#turkey hastag is generally not about backyard pets if You check. Even they are awesome. So here is my #turkey. Her name was #istanbul.
This one sketch in pencil is on the honour tribute of one that gave me its power and nutrients via healing soups. 
Thank You. You are part of my journey, I will be forever grateful, healing myself is a long journey full of changing point of views.#nomorevegan  #healingjourney #turkeydrawing #pencildraw #lovemychickens #poultry #farmersonly #backyard #supportingnature #soilfertility #vitalfarms
