Today we did a lot of air layering on different kinds of fruit trees. First one removes the bark from a suitable branch, then you put wet clay around it and seal it with plastic. After waiting for one to three months, roots will develop and one can cut of the branch and plant it. With this method one can basically create new trees from existing ones without, for example, waiting years and years for a seed to form a mature and fruit bearing tree. This one in particular is an orange tree and it will probably carry fruit next year.

It's taken me 6 years of rejection but finally I got to get my hands on the prestigious @moretonshow "Best Suckler Herd" cup, a competition judging all the best cattle herds in the district. A very proud moment for myself & the farm 🏆🥇
Here's what happens after you put your seed order in! We are very fast workers and there's no speed limit on our single track lane to the post office. It's a bit like the Autobahn in Germany, which makes Ronja feel at home 🤣
Há muitas pessoas que não gostam de fisális. Também nem todos sabem como se escreve o nome da fruta. Mas se provar fisális da Quinta de Louredo, mesmo do início da primavera, vai esquecer sobre ortografia, regras de comportamento, sua própria dieta e não consegue parar de comer esta fruta tão deliciosa até que do prato inteiro só ficam as cascas...

Organic farmer market selling organic food...but what actually is organic food
Organic food is food produced by methods that comply with the standards of organic farming. Standards vary worldwide, but organic farming features practices that cycle resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.Many people are not completely sure about the precise meaning of the word "organic" or "organically grown" on food labels. One of their concerns is whether or not they can trust that the words ensure that the foods were grown or produced without the use of potentially hazardous chemicals.
The first thing to keep in mind is that the term "organic" can be applied to a variety of different kinds of foods. The term can be used on agricultural products, and on meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products. And it also applies to the methods used to process organically grown foods in preparing them for market or to retard spoilage.

I think this caption is just a great reminder that we should consider how important our food choices are.
For me, it's to step away from processed food, eat as much organic food as I can possibly afford but also enjoy it.
Due to health conditions, I am unable to eat wheat, gluten and dairy. Having always loved cooking and baking, it has led me to do more and more. So even if I want a simple biscuit treat I bake my own. The same with my meals, I know all the ingredients and how to say them! No strange words that I can't say and don't really know what the heck they are. And I can tell the difference both in taste and in the way I feel. Have you got a favourite food that you have swapped from bought to homemade

There’s no denying that these fresh, meaty organic beans are delicious, and they are in season right now!
Kami sekeluarga memiliki sebuah kebun kecil di belakang rumah, tempat yang kami gunakan secara maksimal untuk membudidayakan berbagai macam jenis tanaman sayur, buah dan tanaman obat keluarga. Berkebun sangat menyenangkan, aktivitas yang sangat membuat badan dan jiwa kembali segar setelah kami melakukan profesi kami masing-masing.
Kami ingin menyebarkan semangat menanam dan hal itu sangat keren pastinya, karena kita bisa menghasilkan produk pangan yang kita bisa konsumsi bersama keluarga. Usaha seperti ini akan terus konsisten kami suarakan, kami ingin mengajak anak muda untuk kembali menanam, maksimalkan pekarangan dengan mulai menanam tanaman yang bermanfaat bagi keluarga.
Mulai sebarkan semangat menanam dari pekarangan, karena manusia tidak bisa hidup tanpa oksigen .
We have two sources of spring water from the forest, both from the same mountain but different stream. One flows into blue tank, and one into our big concrete tank which is at the highest spot in our farm. Two days ago we moved the blue water tank to a new spot, nearer to our solar panel system so that we can use solar energy to pump the water from blue tank to big concrete tank. We have to store as much water as possible in the big tank for any emergency. It is hot and dry now. Thanks to our workers and #volunteers who helped!
