Life is good when there is no need to purchase...

Swiss Chard
Collard Greens

What a fantastic fall/winter season we've had! We've had a continous harvest all season long, may I add it's been several pounds of fresh organic veggies!!!

What has been the key?
Real Dirt - We were having lots of problems with the bags of soil purchased at ur local home improvement stores :(. Boooooo!
Worm Tea - Black Liquid Gold!

What's growin on at Modern-Sustainability Urban Homestead??

Indeed, we've been busy bees in our daily modern-sustainability ventures and have not posted in months about what's growin on in our li'l Urban Homestead! Let us begin 2011 with what I've sowed in the past few weeks for Spring/Summer:

Too cold or wet to play outside? Improvise is our key :) Lay out an old sheet and begin to play in doors, preferably near a sunny window!

Friday, Feb. 18th Sowed the following seeds:

  • Heirloom Pole Rattlesnake/Purple Bean
  • Edamame Bean
  • Montezzuma's Red Bush Bean
  • Black Azteca Corn
  • Oaxacan Corn
  • Container Bush Slicer Cucumber
  • Spacemaster Cucumber
  • Container Li'l Prince Eggplant
  • Green Fleshed Honeydew Melon
  • Yellow Old German Tomato
  • Brandywine Tomato
  • Container Super Bush Tomato
  • Italian Zucchini Romanesco
  • Mini Jack Pumpkin
  • Dark Green Raven
Wednesday, Mar. 2 Seedlings are looking healthy and strong! Except a few seeds did not germinate :( So I decided to resow them :)

What are these li'l guys being fed? A light worm tea concoction w/ kelp and pond H2O. Also, they are receiving light through a unused lamp I found in the office. Remember Improvise! I move the lamp around the seedlings so that everyone gets a bit of light. Plus, when the sun is out, I place the trays directly in the sunshine!

More to come! Stay tuned...
