Beautiful Nature in my Yard from Caterpillars to Butterflies

Caterpillars come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Their beauty can often be deceiving since their hairs often contain venom which can be poisonous to humans and predators. Toxic caterpillars can be found in many places including backyard gardens, parks, and fields.

Strawberry Fiesta Messy Delicious Food To Bring A Smile To Your Face

My strawberries are thriving. They love the weather in my neck of the woods and they rip fast, so I have tons of them every day. It’s so much fun! This year I fertilized them naturally with leaves from my banana trees and other sustainable methods I have; maybe that’s why they are so happy.

I have so many that now I have to figure out a way to feed the family with them so no strawberry goes to waste. Well, my hens eat them when for some reason they go bad. Usually, I eat them fresh right off the plant, in shakes, I make refreshing drinks, jam, popsicles, shortcakes, and even salads.

I PICKED ABOUT A GALLON OF STRAWBERRIES TODAY! 💪

Facebook Post Wonders In My Yard

The #reel is in Spanish. I talk about how wonderful nature is. One seed of a sunflower gave me this beautiful multiple sunflowers plant. The bees enjoy it so much, the hummingbirds, myself. Pollination in my urban farm has been fantastic this year thanks to the sunflowers and other bee pollination plants I acquired for this growing season.

Harvesting Bananas In Tijuana Today

Bananas are typically ready to be harvested late spring or early summer. The best time to pick your bananas are when the fruit is still green. After your banana harvest, cut your tree back to about 30 inches and let the stem dry out for two weeks before removing it.
