Today in #goobsgarden: Planting the new raised bed and starting some seed trays. Now that the weather is cooler here in #zone10b, it's time to plant all the things. While the rest of the country is experiencing frost and overwintering their crops, it's actually the growing season here in Miami. From October to early May, we grow, and then we shut down our gardens or plant nitrogen producing plants like beans during the summer. We oversummer, if you will. This bed will feature vining plants like #evergladestomato, #pigeonpeas, #butterflypeas, and #wingedbeans, as well as a variety of tomatoes from cuttings, carrots, and lots of edible flowers like #borage, #celosia and #calendula. Can't wait to make beautiful spring salads full of color and goodness. Keep Growing. 🌱

Herbs are so versatile. #borage has beautiful blue, star-shaped flowers that attract pollinators to your garden. The fresh flowers can be added to iced tea or lemonade, tossed into salads, or even candied and used as an edible decoration. It's been said to be a remedy for insomnia and nervousness, as well as a digestive aid. Add this herb to your garden to deter tomato hornworms and promote strawberry growth. #bloodydock has striking green leaves and brilliant red veins, making it a great edible border. A variety of sorrel, it can be added fresh to salads or sauteed like spinach. Like many herbs, it's very nutritious, boasting high levels of vitamins A &C, iron and potassium. It's also been said to be a remedy for skin abrasions, burns, and insect bites. #beebalm, no garden is complete without it. Pollinators love this plant, especially bees and hummingbirds. Add fresh flowers to salads or use dried flowers to make tea. There seems to be no end of medicinal uses for this herb; salves, tinctures, mouthwash, etc. . . #bakercreekseeds#herbs#medicinalherbs#herbaltea#naturalmedicine#pollinators#hummingbird#bees#garden#organicgarden#urbanorganics#urbangarden#backyardgarden#growyourown#growsomething

Borraja, borraja, rara verdura pero maja. Gracias a la cesta ecológica de @landetxeorduna estamos aprendiendo a cocinar esta maravilla peluda. ¿Alguna recomendación por ahí? *** I'd be lying if I said I didn't have to look up this veggie in English: it's called borage. Still hadn't heard of it before but it's delish (and hairy?). That's the beauty of the #landetxeorduña organic veggie basket - a new surprise every week! Anybody out there try borage before?
🌀 Sweet, unassuming Borage 🌀 . I've always loved this little guy, mainly because I love pretty much anything that naturally occurs blue in this world. . If you take notice of the plants I tend to play with, the ingredients I tend to use in my products....yes, they are awesome and useful and safe and helpful for your skin or hair, etc. - and anyone can make those things. . But I double-down on my creations and always make sure that their ingredients have a magical or spiritual purpose too. I created this whole biz under the tagline "bodycare with purpose", and though I no longer use it much, it remains at the forefront of my philosophy. You're gonna use a lotion anyway after your shower - why not have a lotion that doubles as a dose of inflammation prevention or liver support or an anti-depressant? . I also approach foods this way. You will notice in my stories sometimes that I hide all manner of nutritious and magical things in foods (shiitake mushrooms and lavender in my kids' chocolate cookies, for example). This philosophy further extends to the plants I choose to have around. So the first plant I purchased to go into our new garden at our new house, was this beautiful borage. Because it's pretty and blue, of course, and is edible. But also, because it symbolizes courage & provides protection in the #witchy realms (it's wonderful to use in your rituals or have on your altar). Which is, of course, something we all need, inside (or outside!) all of our houses, inside all of ourselves. . So.... you might say, I am gardening "with purpose" too. 🤗 I can't wait to show you more of what I'm plotting for the spring in this blank slate landscape we've landed in! . 🌱🌱🌱 . . #growyourown#witchgarden#magicalplants#plantallies#plantfriends#organicallygrown#borage#plantfoundry#crazyplantlady#witchhouse#witchery#witchesofinstagram#gardening#organicgardening#useful#purposeful#dualpurpose#healinggarden#indigoherbarium#californiagardens
One of my Borage (Starflower) plants. These guys can get pretty big! Even though mines really tiny, it still decided to flower and bloom anyway, lol. Each flower is about the size of a dime, but Im pretty sure they can get bigger than this! #borage#starflower#gardening#flowers#plants
We harvested borage flowers. Known as edible flowers and often called star flower. ⭐️ Drying these for salves, Tinctures, and teas. We like to put them in salad for a beautiful presentation. Great for skin and hair support... and suggestively a mood lifter.
