My favorite thing about my garden this year has been giving away extra starts! I've given around 30 starts away! These are some of mine i recently moved into cups where they'll live until they can go into the ground. Crossing my fingers for a great garden this year!
👶🏻 9 M O N T H S !! 👶🏻 .
Our little buddy just turned 9 months on Saturday! 😭 He’s been learning so much in the last four weeks, and a personality is certainly shining through. Going through a little bit of separation anxiety, he sure loves his mama + dad right now. His heart can be won over however by goofy dancing, endless ball tosses, and creative peek-a-boo plays (this must include full body hiding behind walls/doors/other people 😂). .
He’s popped out three teeth, and have two more top ones fiercely cutting through this past week, leaving mama running a little lower on energy than normal. He also had his first flu this month (he woke up in vomit 🤢 and I was a ball of tears! 😢), and handled it like a little champ. .
He scoots around on his bum, and does the backwards crawl (only if necessary), and my bet is he’s going to walk before ever getting that front crawl down. 🏃
His new favourite expression is 🤷♂️, which he uses every time he is looking for his toy balls, or anything he throws behind the sofa 🙈. .
He is loooving raspberries and coconut cream, and will never turn down egg + banana or eggs + spinach. Oh, and still obsessing over that chicken liver! 💪🏻 .
Thinking of extending my maternity leave through to end of summer instead of beginning of June... Who else is looking forward to heading outdoors without toques, mitts, and jackets?? Any fun summer activities for a one year old?? .
Good morning Spring! 🌿🌷🌸
Well, the weather isn’t quite “spring-like” today, but that’s not going to stop us!
Spring is a time for change. We say good-bye to the cold, damp winter and all of the heavy, comfort foods like soups and stews, and turn to lighter foods, especially the new baby vegetables and greens we will find at our local farmers markets. Radishes, lettuce, sprouts, peas, and if you’re lucky enough, grab some scapes and fiddlehead ferns if you can find them!
Over the next few weeks, we will be moving back into salads and smoothies and lightly cooked foods. Let us know what kinds of recipes that you’d like to see by dropping us a comment below 👇🏻
Enjoy the first day of Spring and the beautiful full moon 🌕 tonight! 😘, Erin and Tiffani
A plate filled with freshly baked vegetables. 🌿
Seasoned with pepper, salt and garlic powder. If you want to do something extra, you can bake the veggies in a little bit of garlic butter.
After a long weekend filled with comfort food it's nice to eat some healthy veggies.
I promised myself to go to the gym at least 2 times this week so I am heading to the gym right now for my morning workout.
Enjoy your day !
Today, we started our weaning journey. Juliet tried courgettes. Steamed and cut into fingers for her to play with and explore as well as steamed courgette purée. How exciting to be exploring new flavours and textures! She was enjoying it, then had a bitter mouthful and decided that was enough 😂 #weaning#weaningjourney#blw#mixedweaning
We got the baby bullet as a gift and I’m pretty happy with her purees!! First batch of veggies were butternut squash, sweet potato & green beans with coconut oil. I’m not a fan of cooking but these were fun to make for her 🖤👩🏽🍳🥥🍠 #babysolidfood#organicbabyfood#babyveggies#babybullet
I spy with my little eye.... a little baby kohlrabi! •
We’ve been working on building up our main garden bed and decided the best way to plant seeds this season was natural selection style. Literally just took seeds and tossed them. Good luck lil guys! After great germination success, I started noticing the broccoli and kohlrabi babes looked exactly the same 😯.
Backtrack to 2 summers ago when I learned that there were vegetables right in our local grocery store that I had never seen in my life. Thanks to @robinsongfarms and @roxxss for introducing me to this yummy veggie and igniting curiosity to explore what other things I’ve been missing out on for 30+ years
If you’ve never tried (or heard of) kohlrabi then let me explain the little bit that I’m learning. I can honestly say I have only tried it 2 ways so far, raw and roasted. You first peel the outer layer which is tough like the outside of a broccoli stem. The inside is a similar texture and crunch to a water chestnut or firm 🍏 apple. Really nice dipped in (vegan) ranch, or added to salads and slaws. When roasted, it’s a little sweeter and tender. According to my research it’s extremely versatile so I’m excited for harvest-time to try all the ways we can play in the kitchen 🤤👏🏼
Back to the garden, it’s becoming easier to figure out which is the broccoli 🥦 we tossed down vs the kohlrabi. Come to find out, the whole brassica family is actually the same plant, bred differently depending on which part we want to play up. (Similar to breeding dogs) That explains why all the seeds look the same, 🤔 and their first sprouts. Thanks for the info and chart, google 👍🏼 • #brassicas#kohlrabi#babyveggies#floridagardening#frontyardgarden#growyourownfood#growfoodnotlawns#babieseverywhere#nowiknow#rawfood#naturalselection
