SPADE

I am in love with all manner of plant life. May you discover that plants are the source of all life and nature is the ultimate inspiration, and become as enamored as I am.
DAMN, NOW THAT’S LOVE: My friend’s lovely boyfriend straight up trimmed her hedge into a heart shape for her! That’s what I call true #love in the #garden ! :)

MOON IN LEO & SOWING TOMATO SEEDS: We’re smack dab in the middle of a Leo moon, which is an exceptionally fine time to sow seeds for all fruiting plants in #biodynamics. I’ll be sowing seeds for #tomatoes and #peppers during this time. Warm weather, here we come! ;)

CHOLA POWERS UNITE: The bestest place to chill with your #homegirls is Highland Park.  Kickin’ it Old school at Sonny’s Hideaway with some down a$$ cholitas. ;) @ivyreynolds @theletterk

GORGEOUS GREENS: Every week at the South Pasadena Farmers Market, I get this delicious, super healthful salad blend from Mt. Olive Farms. I love it. It’s a rotating mix of #shiso , #okinawaspinach , kales, chard, #moringa , edible #Tradescantia , Good King Henry, basil , #endive and more. I highly recommend it to the fullest degree- it will knock your socks off. Of course, we will have the edible Tradescantia plants in the spring and always have plenty of my personal love, perennial OK #spinach. Always push your culinary and gardening envelopes, people, you will be so pleasantly surprised! :)

CILANTRO BESTIES: If you are looking to clear out some of that #Fukushima radiation from your system or plain ‘ol detoxify your your body, you best make best friends with #cilantro. It is easy and actually better to grow from seed than from transplant. Not only will you have an ample supply of the good stuff, but when you let some flower it will attract beneficials galore. Plus #seeds for the next time you plant it. Brilliant and easy, how we like it! :)

NEVER GET HIGH ON YOUR OWN SUPPLY : I blow through so much Tulsi and Stinging Nettle #herb, that I can’t even keep up with my own demand. Mountain Rose Herbs is my go to for bulk herbs, plus oils, teas, creams, bottles and all things Herbal Love. Also, if you are curious about herb crafting, they offer super easy instructions for tinctures, infusions and more. If you don’t know, now you know. ;) Check it out and #makeyourown !

Container grown lemon tree: ‘Eureka.’ Lemons work well in container gardens, but if you live in Zone 7B, like me, you will have to bring them indoors for the winter. Some great container tips for citrus trees at the link.
