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.
ONE OF MY STRAWBERRY PLANTS 😍
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! 💪
NOW IT’S TIME TO EAT! 👍

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.
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.
