Unsere Apfelernte fiel leider in dieser Saison bisher spärlicher aus als die Jahre zuvor, da die Blüte vom Frost heimgesucht wurde. Kleines Trostpflaster: unsere beiden Birnen „Gute Luise“ und „Gellerts Butterbirne“ erfreuen uns mit reichen Erträgen. Leider sind unsere traditionellen Sorten schlechter lagerfähig als Äpfel. Also müssen sie nicht nur zeitnah verzehrt, sondern auch verarbeitet werden, um die wertvollen Inhaltsstoffe - wie die Vitamine B1, B2, B6, C, Folsäure sowie die Mineralstoffe Kalium, Calcium, Eisen, Magnesium und Zink - optimal zu erhalten. Was ich daraus u.a. wohl herstellen werde 🎂🍰😄?
This is @geofflawtononline the gardening guru of permaculture that inspired me to fly out on this crazy mission to grow food in the Jordanian desert! It's truly amazing what he, and his family, have done here 😊 I can't wait to show you what we've done already!

Planting potatoes. We cut up the big ones, making sure each piece has a good sprouting 'eye', and dip the cuts in woodash.
The ash is highly alkaline and prevents mould getting in - a good way of extending limited seed potatoes. Then we prep the beds with seaweed and compost, make a furrow, place the potatoes down and mound the soil up over them.
Dreaming of mid-summer potato salad with mint, chives and homemade mayo already 😋... #Melliodora#permacultureliving
Everyone's heard of quarter pound burgers, but I grew a quarter pound fig! A quarter pound of healthy goodness!

In case anyone has been wondering where I've been... the universe has situated me so that I was placed into living in an ecovillage. It feels strange to be here, as the world increases in natural disasters and the threat of climate change is not even looming upon us - it's happening, it seems like I am being forced to take the next step in my own life and learn what it is to be in conscious community. To live with the smallest footprint possible. To take the leap everyone talks about.
There is a focus on permaculture and natural building here, and I spend most of my days in the garden, talking to the plants, working with them with my hands, and truly experiencing what it means to be in community - with nature and with other people.
On my 2nd day here a visiting First Nations man was standing next to me and I asked him, smelling the smoke on his clothes "did you just sage yourself?" And he said "yes", smiling.
I took a piece of palo santo out of my bag and asked him "have you heard of this?" He shook his head. "I got it in Peru"
He laughed, "explains why I haven't heard of it"
I told him he could have it and he quickly said "come with me" and took me his van where he had a bunch of sage bundled up. He put some in a piece of cloth and gifted me it.
I thought of the legend of the eagle and the condor. There is a prophecy that says that when the eagle of the North and the condor of the South fly together, the Earth will awaken.
And here I was, trading sacred gifts from the south for a gift to this man from the north.
My heart smiled and I knew that I was supposed to be here.
Earth will awaken - but we must awaken first, in small intentional actions in our every day lives.
I believe in us. •

I set this out for the hummingbirds that live in my garden, but the bees claimed it their own! 🐝Two thirds of the plants we eat are pollinated by the wind, but the other third is pollinated by bees, so I'll take all the bees I can get in my garden! 🐝🐝🐝
🌱 Hardening off the fall/winter garden seedlings - day four. They've been hanging out in part sun/part shade over by the greenhouse the last few days, which is a pretty protected area on our side yard, but they feel so much less fragile already! Even with the oscillating fan on them in the greenhouse prior to that, I was accidentally snapping leaves and stems with the slightest bump while tending to them. Today they're out in the front yard, getting exposure to a decent wind that has picked up, and will have more direct afternoon sun. With two days left until planting, they're right on schedule; not only in their increased strength and outdoor tolerance, but they are also definetly telling me they're starting to feel crowded and hungry for more space and food! 🌞
