spadeandseeds MAKRUT LIME BLOSSOM & SMELLOGRAPH! Wish I could take a smellograph of these delicious Makrut #lime blossoms (aka Kaffir Lime). Super bewitching, and intoxicating in a different way than Orange Blossoms...Kaffir limes also reputably "remove negative #energy, enhance mental outlook, attract good luck and ward off evil spirits." Planting a lime tree in general is considered to be very #auspicious for the home. Do tell! ;) 5d

spadeandseeds SWEET LITTLE MEDICINE DAISIES AT YOUR FEET! I'm forever in love with Bellis perennis daisies that so sweetly polka dot lawns and parks in #losangeles . You can eat the leaves and flowers of this medicinal lawn "weed" and it has a myriad of medicinal qualities, and it's just a super cute sweet daisy. Who can resist? I plan on importing these smiling, peaceful faces into my grass patches along with apple scented Roman #chamomile as ground cover. Double sweetness medicinal herb meadow lawn! ;) 2w

spadeandseeds PLAYTIME: My little dude clicked this pic of spicy #indian Jwala peppers from #BakersCreekSeeds, decorated with Bowles Black #Violas and a Pink Tristan #Strawberry #Flower. He keeps it real for me in the garden and reminds me how playtime is so important for creativity, makes little sorrel mint sandwiches to share and brings us handfuls of berries to taste. It's really really beautiful in so many ways I can't express! :) 4w

spadeandseeds MESS 'O GREENS: How beautiful it is to walk outside and gather your food! This newish baby bricked-out bed of mine sprouts Tronchuda (my current fave), Red Russian, Curly Dwarf, Thousand Headed and Redbor #kale, Champion and Green Glaze (a rare shiny leafed collard that repels cabbage loopers) Collards, Onions, Scallions, and other little babes growing in the understory. This little patch often provides lunch and dinner-pretty rad, I gotta say! ;) These all at my markets for the next month or so @atwatervillagefm @altadenafm @southpasadenafm 1mon

spadeandseeds UM, YES PLEASE! : When @veronicainla was all "Hey, lady, I have some eggs from my #chickens want to trade for plants?" I was all like, "Hells yes, I want to trade for those bomb eggs!" Then she was all, "Whatchu got?" And I was all like "I can hook you up with some Dokudami for that authentic Asian flavor and the best edible black violas that will make your clients go bananas for your plating. Mmmhhhhmm." And she was like "Word?" And were all like, BOOM! - #alternativeeconomy #bartering #backyardfarming #hautecuisine #happychefs #kitchengardens #smilingfaces in #LosAngeles n Stuff.

spadeandseeds TRASH TO TREASURE: Cardboard boxes from @grassrootsnmk + Horse Poopies from #TimothyDundon aka Zeke The Sheik + Poopy Goat Hay from @mariposacreamery = Sheet Mulch in my garden. All of this was a "waste product", and all of it cost me zero dollars. I bought nothing and actually helped them out a bit by removing some of their waste. And I get a cleaner pathway, happy #microbes and rich soil underfoot. Pretty cool, huh? ;) #permaculture #LosAngeles #sheetmulch 2mon
