mexicorosel Ouch! One of the biggest chicken eggs I've ever seen. Poor chook! 2d
  •   nicksegner Haha one of ours finally started laying and they're tiny! 2d
  •   mexicorosel So good @nicksegner! These are old chooks, very happy chooks! They roam around the garden all day, turning the soil as they look for worms and larvae and other juicy soil-livin' goodness. We found these in the compost pile! Gotta get some new nesting straw into their main house so they start laying in there again. Your apple orchard is looking so good, loving the photos you and @janelleanor have been sharing! 2d
  •   nicksegner @mexicorosel we have been letting ours roam in the garden and just free in the fields! They are so happy to forage for bugs and worms :) thanks man! We have had a great harvest an are almost finished with the apples for the season. One more cider pressing tho! ;) 2d
  •   natalie_nettle @nicksegner those tiny first eggs are so special! 1d
  •   nicksegner @natalie_nettle aren't they?! So far they run back to the coop to lay. Good straw nesting boxes there. The rooster seems to think he's a hen as he's been laying onthe eggs while the hens run about @mexicorosel 1d

mexicorosel Amazing diversity in this small backyard garden. Here I taste the scent of a soon to bloom sunflower, grown from seed gifted by a gardener at @greenschoolbali. Around us, tomatoes ramble wildly, giving punnets each day; chives and scallion renew weekly; pumpkin and zucchini climb amongst it all, providing nutritious pollen for bees, flies, ants and the myriad other pollinators who live here; sweet potato nestles firmly beneath the soil, her leaves creating a blanket that covers from above; there is kale, there is amaranth, broccoli and cabbage, there are flowers, countless flowers, and greens, tasty greens. And above it all, a family of heavily fruiting banana plants. And above those, a giant Black Sapote tree. The chocolate mousse tree. 4d

  •   bolivi4 Mmmmm such a tasty snack 7d
  •   thekidbucketlist One of my favourite fruits. Tell me if you spot any guavas with pink flesh. They only have the white down here in Sydney and I think I'd fly up just for that find! 7d

mexicorosel Today we collected so much tamarind from a huge tree in a local Townsville park. Wonderful snacks with a delicious burst of flavour. Do you have any recipes or other uses for Tamarind? Share them here! 2w
  •   valcuit 2w
  •   chari_luv We use it to make a sauce, drinks, jam and local sweets. 2w
  •   dumbodomestic Tamarind paste for cooking ! 2w
  •   neepswamy You can smash it with a lil bit of salt and chilli and another herbs... Smash it with a nice rock.. The taste will be better! My grandmother used to make it for us when we are kids! 2w

mexicorosel Home now with Australian soil between my toes. Three weeks in Vietnam observing and documenting their agriculture. This is a photo of discarded garlic from the island of Ly Son, where most of Vietnam's garlic is grown. The garlic on this island grows in incredible conditions. In the sand dunes, with the sea shore sometimes only 10m away, the farmers of Ly Son grow their garlic in beach sand. Amending the sand with buffalo manure and plant matter, including beach plants such as a trailing Ipomoea vine, the farmers increase the fertility of their land naturally. We can grow food everywhere. Never accuse your soil of being too poor. Make it rich. Feed it! The most amazing thing I saw on Ly Son Island was a papaya with a trunk bigger than my thigh growing besides a crop of garlic. In beach sand. It's roots must have been reaching down into the departing water table, drinking from pure mineralised rainwater that rolls from the hills and into the sea. Tall, healthy and pregnant with fruit. We can live in an abundant world. So why don't we? Start trying. Keep trying. Let's make it more and more of a reality each and every single day. Photo by Jess Hay/Flugvél. 2w

mexicorosel I've heard gubinge grows around these parts, and, having never seen nor tasted it fresh before, I've been looking out for what I think could be it. I found these growing along the seaside, beside a great, heavily fruiting mango tree. But I don't think these are gubinge. Or are they? Can anyone tell? 2w
  •   k_berry14 The ones with stems look like little fruits I had in the Dominican Republic. They're like a little nut or pit covered in a jelly like tasty thing! Can't remember what they're called.. The other ones look like walnuts. 2w
  •   k_berry14 Also these fruits were near the mango trees where I was staying so... Maybe? 2w
  •   morenamarcy those look like baby mangos. I looked up gubinge and they have more of a tip at the end. there are tons of photos in google images. 2w
  •   sirenass They look like green almonds 2w
  •   mexicorosel These aren't mangoes, but thanks for the introduction to paho @faytarenlui :) 2w
  •   mexicorosel They could be some kind of native beach walnut @k_berry14 @tinetorseth, I'm not so sure though. I'm visiting the Darwin Botanical Society today so I'll learn more :) 2w
  •   k_berry14 Found what I was looking for! Commonly called the Spanish Lime or Limoncillo. Only found in the Caribbean (like I said, I had them in the Dominican). Best of luck finding out what they are! 2w
  •   tinetorseth ok! keep us posted to know what they were :) 2w

mexicorosel I was blessed with a guided tour of the Brisbane Herbarium at Mt Coot-ha Botanical Gardens. Here is one of their over 800,000 specimens, dating all the way back to specimens collected by James Cook's botanist in 1770. Thank you so much @jessimaym. 1mon

mexicorosel Throwback to our Brisbane days. Banjo sounds radiating out into the street and surrounding suburb. Sunflowers growing outside, swaying in the light evening breeze. Sunflowers everywhere actually - our entire front and back garden became wild with them after the kids and I shared a few fun sowing frenzies. We had a small #foodisfree garden growing beside the pedestrian footpath, next to the front gate. Cherry tomatoes, chives, basil, marigold, nasturtium, mustard, more sunflowers, and others I any remember. A community garden a short walk down the street. That garden was the wildest I've had. African horned cucumber grew rampant up bamboo we harvested from our neighbour. Suburban Brisbane. A sea of cowpea working tirelessly as pipelines for atmospheric nitrogen to travel down into the soil. Clover. Tiny white buckwheat flowers always covered in thousands of pollinators - wasps, bees, flies, ants. Seeds forming everywhere, always, always falling to the soil and new life as seedlings always growing from the moist and ever-growing soil. Leaves, stems, flowers, and all of the life that came into our garden. It all became one. Fresh life. 2mon

  •   captainwildchild How do you Import your curves into Premiere pro? Or did you edit this with photoshop? 2mon
  •   alaskajoy I would love to know the answer to The question from captainwildchild :D 2mon
  •   cucuruchitu You claim to be such a friend and lover of nature yet we see you all the time using polluting means of transport. But sure you make up to nature later by eating raw pizza and playing the banjo for your plants. Your hypocrisy would make nature spit in your face if it could, no offence. 2mon
  •   mexicorosel @cucuruchitu We are in a period of transition. I am conscious of when I use nature's resources and absolutely certain that how I use them is a good re-investment of energy - the best I can do in my current position. It is like working for a mining company and diverting their profits - your pay - into the creation of an ecologically symbiotic technology, that therefore makes the company's technology redundant and the energy that was once their's, is now, in turn, diverted and invested into the new way. We had just returned from an afternoon of planning for our individual projects. Projects that feed and nourish our global community on a macro and micro scale. Our projects are borne from our passion, and our passion is borne from our love for a positive, healthy life for all. I understand your position and I once thought the same, and yes, still question - always question. But to deny myself the opportunity to actively create something I know to be good, is to do nothing. And to do nothing is to allow the non-optimal reality to continue, and, possibly, violently implode and fail -- I mean that in the sense that if I do nothing, who is to say that everybody else will not do nothing also? It is a period of transition. Yes, there are better ways. I will continue trying to integrate them into my lifestyle. I will continue following my heart and sharing positivity, and I am always open to your criticism, though I think your energy could be put into something far more proactive. Thank you for your comment. It helps me better understand the position of those around me, and therefore better able to understand myself. I appreciate it. 2mon
  •   toritoguchi What a lovely video. But dream catchers aren't supposed to be used like that. 2mon
  •   nicolekizi People need to stop sending negative messages on here, if you don't agree or appreciate someone or something unfollow. It is so simple. Choose happiness. There is no difference between cars, airplanes or phones, they are all devices the world has evolved to use. There could be solar, there could be hemp and completely sustainable ways to live and treat our planet, but for now the least we could do is love one another. Comfort one another, accept one another. The least we could do is that. 2mon

mexicorosel A sunset to match the feeling in my chest after running two children on bicycles up a hill and all the way home. I push one ahead of the other, up the hill, faster faster, and fall back to push the other forward and in front. Over and over, up and up, until we reach the top and level ground. Through a park now, barefeet pressing juicy olives into the path as we pass beneath canopy after canopy, dappled light as little shadow-veined circles on our skin. Their ginger cat greets us in the street. Open the gate, see the garden we loved with new seeds and straw and fungi-filled wood from the pine forest. Sun is setting. Crickets sounding from their new moist mulch beds. Happy sounds as the kids park their bikes and walk inside, all of us breathing hard and alive from the effort, smiles etched into our faces. A sunset to match the feeling. 2mon
