Lions mane for lunch! Finally grew a nice specimen of this weirdly wonderful mushroom, thats both medicinal and delicious. A bit like cooking a muppet, but just too tasty to care... #milkwoodmushrooms#lionsmane
Trying to propagate some rosemary from cuttings. Might have to wait for a few more roots before transplanting outside? Would be keen to find out what else you all grow from cuttings? #propagating#cuttings#propagation
The red jalapeño. No it is not a different plant it is simply left to hang long enough to ripen. The same process as a tomato takes place, chlorophyll breaks down eventually into carotenoids, red being lycopene. The red jalapeño is also markedly sweeter due to other compounds breaking down to sugar , and contains higher concentrations of all vitamins and antioxidants that are normally collected. Heat depends on soil, but the fat red peppers I picked today are hot hot hot. Did you know Sriracha is made with red jalapeño? The ripeness is what provides sweetness and complexity to the sauce. Legend also has it they get all their peppers from one farm, insane. We wont be putting any vinegar or sugar in our sriracha version 😜 #hotpeppers#jalapeno#serrano#thaichile#redjalapeno#spicy#growyourown#gardening#organic#wholefood#hotsauce#hotsaucecommittee
Don’t be hasty when adjusting pH! We always recommend to pre-dilute pH up and down with water to control the rate of application. Our tests verify that an upswing in pH above 8 will cause nutrient lockout, wherein phosphorous and calcium become unavailable to plants, whether it’s grown in soil, water, or coco systems. Correcting the pH afterwards does not make the nutrients available again. So take your time to ensure your plants receive all the nutrients they need!
Using our own home grown herbs means we can pick and use the exact amount we will need each time, no wastage of nasty plastic packaging or worry that they will go off, if not used by a certain date. #growyourown#zerowaste#urbiPod
