#grow_ing

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. °

Our broccoli is finally making its appearance. With our recent rain and cold spell, it only means that many winter-season vegetables like carrots, cabbage, broccoli, kale, brussel sprouts and greens taste better. This is because as temperatures drop, the cold causes the plants to break down energy and store it into sugar, leading to a sweeter, tastier flavor. Awesome stuff right? °

Half of the Huazontle that we grew this Summer. We're laying it out to dry so that we can harvest the seeds. I can't get over the beautiful color it ends up having towards the end of its life. °

I saw the sun rise and witnessed plants come alive upon its arrival. Corn stalks reached high trying to hug the sun. Birds flew by and waved their wings carrying a beautiful song welcoming a new day, a new month and another opportunity.

Growing beets from seed has been the easiest for me. If you are interested in growing something from seed, I would recommend beets because they don't seem to need as much attention and the germination time is 👍🏼

Things are starting to slow down a bit in the garden, I'm greatful for what we have managed to harvest this summer it was way more than we anticipated. I pulled out three tomatoe plants, what was left of the corn and some butternut squash that started to split because they were left on the vine too long 😔. There's still so much work to do and I nearly spent a whole 9-5 workday there (there's always so much to do). °

After following Root Down LA for some time now, I finally got a chance to go check out their garden. This image is before we added amendments to the soil, planted vegetables, mulched and watered. Needless to say, I'm tired and ready for a nap! Thank you for having me Root Down LA and huge big ups to @mrquentinturner for being so awesome! Next up is my garden, if you'd like to come send me a message. ✌🏽

Besides our #huauzontle seeds, we also planted this lovely orange amaranth from Guatemala. It is primarily used for grain which is rich in vitamin B, vitamin A, vitamin E and iron; this variety has been revived in the Mayan communities of Baja Verapaz after almost being lost during the civil war; it is named after Juana, the woman whose family revived and saved seeds of this delicious variety. We are primarily #grow_ing this to continue on with what Juana started and spread this wealth of seed saving with our community. Also, my grandmother's name is Juana and somehow this makes me feel closer to her. 💛°

We planted this Huauzontle from seed and after several tries, it finally took off! Huauzontle (wah-zont-lay) also know as Aztect spinach, is a type of quelite – the wild greens of Mesoamerica that are highly valued for their robust growth and high nutrition. Thought to be native to Mexico, its cultivation is documented to pre-Columbian Aztec use and has also been found in archaeological records all the way north and east into southern Appalachian cave-dwelling tribes.
It was important and valuable enough as a food crop to the Aztecs that it was accepted as a tribute or tax payment by the Aztec government – records show 160,000 bushels of huauzontle were paid in one year. The young tender leaves are harvested and can be eaten as salad greens but the flower is what most desire. When in bloom, the flower can be harvested and cooked with mole. °

Today I harvested 50 + pounds of tomatoes. Please, tell me why are people without food? If this can be done by two people in a 20X30 piece of land, imagine all the of people we can feed by using all of those empty plots in our cities. #freefoodprogram #grow_ing °

Throwback to the first garden that we planted, I remember we did everything wrong. The timing, the type of soil, the amount of sun the plants were getting, the types of plants, too much water and everything else that could go wrong! In the beggining, you will fail a lot with growing food but like with everything else in life, just keep at it and you'll get it more and more. Suddenly, you'll find yourself synching your intuition with nature and have the best of all collaborations. °

Throwback to the time I met Jay and his garden. He shared white sage (salvia apiana) and sunflower seeds and showed me all of the native and rare plants around his front yard oasis. °

#redborkale amongst dahlias, borage, and huazontle. Red bor kale is a member of the Brassica family also known as cole crops which tend to thrive best during cooler climates. The color of this kale turns into a deep purple but because of our high temperatures, it only shows a minor glimpse of it. We planted this one in full sun which leaves us surprised of how good is #grow_ing. °

Profoundly inspired by this small space urban garden located in the housing projects of San Pedro CA. This garden is the perfect visual of resistance in that community. It shows that despite the rapid changes that will most likely leave many of it's residents struggling to find new homes, with the new proposed development, we will continue to find a way to find the beauty in it all. °

Our goal is nurture and help our Mother Earth by encouraging people to get their hands in the soil and combat climate change one garden at a time as well as helping them become more self-sustainable. We are also huge advocates of using art as a form of healing and promoting resistance. We have partnered up with Freedom Schools of South LA and have been doing several art workshops that incorporate food advocacy in our communities. Yesterday, we sat outside the USC campus to paint a still life of veggies that came straight from our garden. Needless to say, it was peaceful and magical 🌱💫

This old lady came in handy for this urban gardener how I miss her! I used to imagine her and I parked somewhere with a trunk full of veggies. Giving them away to people for free or by donation and encouraging everyone to grow their own food. Maybe, it will still happen 😉🌱
