French lavender seed is back in stock. 'Frenchette' had some newly formed seed pods, so I shook them into a white porcelaine bowl, sifted & handpicked the teensy weensy babies out. Really good germination rate with these. Trick is to plant them in seed raising mix, then plant up into little pots, & up again until big enough to plant out in the garden bed. Once established, they are really tough plants in drought, give a magnificent purple haze of flowers for bees to frolic on. #frenchlavender #lavanduladentata #droughttolerantplants #heirloomseed #tuscangarden #purpleflowerseverywhere #beesonmyflowers #lavendertea #lavenderjam #lavendercream #lavenderpillow #lavenderhedge #backyardseedsaustralia #backyardseedsupply #homesteadingaustralia
Alba Cranesbill Geranium. I harvested seed today. Hope the fairies didn't mind. I only took about 60 seeds. Left the rest to germinate and cover the bank. #fairiesinmygarden #cranesbillgeranium #cranesbillflower #geranium #originalgeranium #heirloomseed #backyardseedsaustralia #homesteadingaustralia
Jimmy Nardello pepper is battling on. Strong winds here today. I hope the staking is adequate. This pepper is so hard to find in Australia, and there are new quarantine rules about importing capsicum (& tomatoes). The capsicum & tomatoes we already have are pretty much 'it'' now, no new ones allowed in, for reasons of food security. So, I savour my seeds, & pass them on the peeps who I know will do the same. It's all about keeping up the biodiversity & not letting the big supermarkets dictate our food crops. Let them do that & you are allowing GMO & all other adulterations become the norm. #saveourseeds #seedbank #homesteadinglife #backyardseedsaustralia #urbanfarmer #growyourownfood #fairfood #slowfood #growingfoodtheitalianway

Hungarian Poppy flower. Papaver Somniferum. Seed is blue, flower has 5 single petals, foliage is grey green, with a rosette formation at the base, like a leafy cabbage. Plant height 80 - 100 cm, width at base 30 -45 cm. Plant in clumps for self-support. Beneficial to bees!! They love it. #flowersforbees Grows really well in all cool, temperate, hot climates in Australia. All soil types and terrains tolerated. Just needs to be planted in Autumn for a spectacular Spring show, with the cold nights of Winter and some frosts giving the best results during the growing phase. It can be planted in early Spring too, with good results, but needs a few spells of cool weather to get to best height. Selling seed, link in bio. Or DM for direct sale. Australia only, sorry. #papaversomniferum #hungarianbluepoppy #gypsyflower #cutflower #romanceinthegarden #heirloomseed #backyardseedsaustralia #backyardseedsupply #homesteadingaustralia #beneficialinsectattracting
Garlic is smelling oh so good in the cool of the garage today. You'd swear I had some lovely salami hanging in there, but no, just crates of garlic, (plus French onions and Golden Shallots). #novampireshere #rojodecastrogarlic #redcreolegarlic #homesteadingaustralia #growyourowngarlic #spanishgarlic #heirloomseed #heirloomgarlic #rosegarlic #rosemaryandgarlic #garlicbreadpizza #winterprepper #permiegarden #backyardseedsaustralia
Zucchini shadows in evening light. My food garden has been battered by the recent extreme Summer heat. We have been watering morning and evening to keep it going, because this has been a lot of work to get to this stage, so it would be pointless to just throw our hands in the air and say it's too hot, too much work, let the rabbits and birds have it. I am not one to give up, anyway. But we have entered the hottest phase of the season, and the water tank is done for, the level is just above the syphon point on the outlet. We have now entered the zone of expensive food self-sufficiency. We've switched over to town supply now, which means a big water bill in 6 weeks. In time, there will be another water tank collecting off the chook yard roof we are now building. Meanwhile, we pay for water and hope for rain. Mulch is not much use in this dry weather, for the wind just lifts it and takes it all away. That's like throwing $$$ into the air, really, @$17 per bale of compressed sugar cane / pea straw mulch or $75 per cubic metre of hot (unrotted) eucalyptus mulch. #urbanfarmer #frenchzucchini #growyourownveggies #heirloomseed #backyardseedsaustralia #rainwatergarden #kitchengarden #sellingseeds #husqvarnarotary
Cinderella. Pumpkin like no other. Grew a massive crop of these last season. Such fun. #growingpumpkins #cinderellapumpkin SEED AVAILABLE NOW Good for growing in Queensland, where the growing season is so much longer than our southern state, Victoria. #heirloomseeds #homesteadingaustralia #selfsufficientliving #permiegarden #savingseed #growingfoodyoulove #backyardseedsaustralia
Homegrown. Every single thing on this board I grew from seed. French zuchinni, Johnny Nardello pepper, Rojo de Castro garlic, Italian flat leaf parsley, Italian brown Cippilino onions, baby celery, and carrots, (cannot remember which variety, have 3 types growing, forgot to lable the bed, duh). Frying it all up with cold pressed Australian olive oil, serving over pasta with organic local parmesan. Love growing my own food. Lot of work, but oh my! :) #growyourownfood #backyardseedsaustralia #homesteadingaustralia #heirloomseeds #savingseed #sellingseed #selfsufficientliving #permiegarden

Hot inside the greenhouse today. I transplanted these little lemon balm babies out of a small seeding pot, just 2 days ago. Hoping the heat doesn't knock them around too much, that they lay down good roots in the luscious soil I potted them up in. #growyourown #selfsufficientlife #growfromseed #urbanfarmer #backyardseedsaustralia
My Rojo de Castro red creole garlic is selling, but I've not had any go out in ETSY store this year. Not many Australian garlic sellers inside ETSY, it seems. I sell most of my garlic harvest on EBAY & direct. And barter economy is awesome with homegrown garlic!! ** Listed & ready to post out, but not to be planted before April. This is a late season garlic, hardneck variety with excellent storing qualities. It is the longest storing garlic around, I think. Can't get any better than 10 - 12 months out of homegrown Australian garlic. #garlicbread #nochemicals #redcreolegarlic #australiangarlic #growyourowngarlic #myveggieplot #selfsufficientgardening #hardneckgarlic #antioxidantsfood #alliums #cleanfood #fairfood #heirloomgarlic #companionplanting #backyardseedsaustralia #etsysupplier #prepperpantry #longkeeperfarm

Inside my greenhouse today. Lovely lavender that I have grown from seed. This is the English type, which forms a very uniform round bush and perfect protrusions of long purple wands. True fairy habitat. Bit harder to germinate this seed in comparison to the Frenchette one I grow and sell. (----More seed available in a few weeks. The strong, hot wind has taken all that I was anticipating this week.) But I like a challenge. :) #lavandulaangustifolia #englishlavender #lavenderhedge #purpleflowers #fragrantgarden #beneficialflowers #feedthebees #butterfliesinmygarden #cottagegarden #growingflowersfromseed #seedseller #backyardseedsaustralia #urbanfarming #homesteadinglife

I let these few heirloom Swedish turnips run to seed, and was getting ready to harvest the seed from the dried pods this week. Alas, the crimson rosellas got to them this morning. They have stripped my plants bare. Also taken my romanesco seeds that were about to be harvested. #sadface #selfsufficientlife #homesteading #savingseedsfornextyear #heirloomseed #backyardseedsaustralia #growyourowfood #fooddiversity #fairfood
Nature is an engineer. Just look at this sculpted seed pod arrangement. Seed pods on stem of Cranesbill Geranium. This is a true geranium. 'Bloody Red'. Called this because the leaves give a red show in Autumn, long after the flower has gone and seeds dispersed. Rockery coverage, bedding edge, frost & drought tolerant. Forms a rhizome after a while, then it can be divided at the roots. So stunning and pretty. Bees love it. #beesinmygarden #creanesbillgeranium #seedheritage #sellingseeds #savingseedsfornextyear #droughttolerantplants #frosttolerant #oldfashionedflowers

It's too hot outside to spend any longer than 10 minutes in the garden. So, peeling harvested garlic down and freezing it.

Seed saving. Harvested heirloom French lavender seed today. Lavandula dentata. How is it that such a tiny speck of a seed can grow into the most fragrant 1 metre high shrub, and pack such a punch in colour, fragrance, oils, and bee foraging? It took me over an hour to separate the seed from the flower buds, but it is so worth it. Pretty high germination rates for this varity, I have discovered. I grow the plants in seed raising mix and keep potting up the plants until they are big enough to position in the outside garden. Trick is to not disturb the roots when transplanting, and to keep the seedling moist but not soggy. Lavender needs good drainage, loves poor soil and and therefore is excellent in a temperate climate during drought. Trim back annually, by about 20% at end of flowering, and off she goes again, growing new flowers.

White onion flower head. So much seed comes from one of these perfectly symmetrical flower balls. Bees like onion flowers, too!. Not sure if it would taint honey with onion flavour, but possible. #onionseeds #whiteonion #backyardseedsaustralia #seedsavers #heirloomseeds #selfsufficientlife #homesteading #prepperlife #growyourownfood #etsyaustralia #etsygarden #sellingseeds #doingthemostwithwhatigot
Carnations. I grew these from seed, planted them between a plum tree and next to a bed of garlic. Bees, lady bugs and butterflies galore. And, they smell so good, so we always have a few cut flowers in the house. #growyourownflowers #carnations #dianthusflower #seedsaver #heirloomseed #backyardflowerfarm #backyardseedsaustralia #etsyaustralia #etsygarden #selfsufficientliving #homesteadinglife #beefriendlyflowers #beneficialinsects
Leeks grown from seed I have been saving for 7 years. i love the way onion and leek grow up a bent strands of green with the little black seed shell on the tip, then, all of a sudden, they straighten themselves up. Leek and onion seed is only viable for a year, so I store it in the fridge to keep the germination rate high. #growingonions #seedsaver #leekseeds #backyardseedsaustralia #growyourownfood #selfsufficientliving #homesteading #etsyaustralia #etsysellersofinstagram #etsygarden #heirloomseed #seedseller #littlelifeontheprairie
I grew a plot of vegetables and bee flowers in this mound of subsoil that was dug from our plot to sink the 45,000 litre concrete water tank down into. After working bio-charcoal and animal manure through it, we have grown a whole stack of pumpkins and then this, inside a year. Next week I am harvesting most of these veggies and then turning the soil a bit, before planting out a plot of carrots. The boards around the edge slow down the feral rabbits. As there is so much for them to nibble on in our plot, they don't bother with hopping the boards, just stick to ground level. But, they have left the vegetable garden alone for a while now, and I can only guess that this is because they don't like garlic. And I have a great deal of garlic growing. #biochar #reclaimingdirt #sustainableliving #feralrabbits #selfsufficientlife #backyardseedsaustralia #backyardseedsupply #foodforthebees #growyourownfoods #etsyaustralia #etsysellersofinstagram #indieseedseller #heirloomseeds
