IG: What up, doc? ??Could there be a more appropriate day than eclipse day to harvest a big bunch of my @uharvest Solar Yellow carrots?! I’ve been snacking on one or two here and there for the last month or so, but felt inclined to pull more today so I can re-seed the area for a fall harvest. Friggen’ love @uharvest and their fantastic collection of organic and heirloom seeds. Rock on ??(as I write this I am literally eating the dirt covered carrots… because, microbiome, amirite? ✌?

IG: We often over-analyze and over-think. While this can be beneficial at times (preventing us from making some stupid decisions??), sometimes we have to stop thinking and worrying, trust that it’ll all work out, and just take a leap✨?How does this apply to your life?

IG: ???Check out this AMAZING custom urban garden enclosure that @jeffreymcglynn just designed and built in The Annex. It fully protects all garden plants from urban animal destruction, has 4 doors for easy access and looks kickkkkass. Photos don’t do the grand scale of this beauty justice, but I’ll add more in my next post anyway

IG: ???Yeah, don’t forget to add “AND FLOWERS” to that… what a wet summer it’s been and the slugs are thriving. My holey plants glisten with translucent shiny slug goo. Some are okay, but a lot really got slug-demoed this year. To be fair, I really haven’t put up much (…any) of a fight against them besides hand picking any I come across (and feeding them to the chickens?). It’s all part of the joys of gardening– each unique year presents you with a unique challenge

IG: Growing bell peppers outdoors in Ontario can be tricky– hit or miss really, but the conditions seemed to be just right for my deck railing container peppers this year. The seeds that grew these plants are from an organic pepper I ate last summer ?. Seed saving is so simple. I’ve got jalapeños too!! P.s. On its left is a surprise ground cherry/cape gooseberry plant that came up amongst my peppers that I decided to “let be”… in the gardening world this would be called a “volunteer”. It’s happily producing ground cherries in the railing planter amongst the peppers as well
