Yesterday I visited Museum Voorlinden, that happens to be surrounded by a beautiful garden designed by landscape architect Piet Oudolf. Mostly known for his New York High Line (love!!) and for his ability to create natural looking gardens and landscapes that stay interesting the whole year round. And without much interference, except for some necessary maintenance. Such an inspiration!

What do you do when your child grows way to many pumpkins? Freeze some pumpkin purée, make pie, give some away, carve some, and make scarecrows of course!! We still have about a dozen to carve and freeze 😬🎃 (Oliver did not draw a beard on his face, it’s just a shadow from a tree 🤣)

One of the most prized horticultural achievements at Longwood is this thousand bloom form Chrysanthemum x morifolium ‘Susono-no-Tsuki’ From a single stem cutting, it has taken 17 months and over 2,000 staff hours to nurture and train this single plant into a perfect blooming dome with one central stem. ✨👏👏👏 #beautyandexcellence #theartofgardening #livingsculptures #kiku

Also, it's World Mental Health Day, everyone. Check in on your friends, even the folks who seem like the strong ones. Uplift each other, be kind, and love. So many of us struggle daily with mental health issues, and a lot of us still feel like we have to keep it quiet because the world can be a judgy, shitty place. Well, fuck the stigma. We're all in this together. 💚 #ShareGrowHeal

Zoodles, shrimp and pesto for lunch.  It tastes like summer, but definitely feels like autumn outside.  I even lit the fireplace this morning to take the chill off.  Honestly, I used to say that Fall was my favorite season, but really it’s this right here...where summer is fading into fall.  Where canning is done but there’s still garden produce to eat.  Where there’s just enough of a chill for wool socks and sweaters but not for heavy coats.  It’s the perfect time of year. 🙌🏼🍁🌞 #fullandsimplelife

#13- On my second day in Singapore I rode my carriage around this beautiful country. I entered a garden that uses flowers and plants as paint and the soil and sky as canvas through a chinese building with dragons and paintings that captivated me. There I saw rare majestic animals like pheasants, peacocks, and spotted deers.

Hop farmer hubby @darrinburgess 👨🏻‍🌾 was out harvesting hops before I finished my morning joe ☕️ even wearing his cute little enamel hop pin from @wildshipstudio that I found at @tidesandpinesshop too much goodness here! Maybe a little hop farm is in our future....🍻👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾 #alltheloveandmagic #organicgardening #hopharvest #freshhops #fallharvest #growthings #pnwphotographer #lifestylephotographer
I got some time to work in the garden this weekend! 
I picked the last watermelon, we got 6 watermelon from the two plants I planted! I quite pleased with that!! Since there were no more watermelon, I pulled the plants. 
The never ending zucchini plant finally quit producing...okay it may have grown a couple more zucchini but we have so many and I’ve already froze a ton so I decided to pull it! The plant go so large, it was really getting in the way of the cherry tomatoes. 
The bush beans also finished up and got pulled. 
So with all the plant pulling, I still have all my tomato plants, pumpkins, peppers, carrots and herbs growing! We have 15 pumpkins in our house and so many more ripening up!! About half will be baked and frozen for pumpkin pies but I haven’t gotten to that yet. 
Happy gardening! 👩🏼‍🌾

Halfway through September and we finally have a decent amount of ripe tomatoes!!!! I got 5lbs of canning tomatoes (which is less than I was getting on a daily basis last year!) and I couldn’t be happier!! We also finally got enough cherries to overflow a bowl! The red cherry tomatoes are still very slow so I kept those ones separate so I can cook with them. The yellow & purple cherry tomatoes are perfect for snacking!

At the farm to table dinner I hosted a while back, I told the girls I wanted to eventually grow or make from scratch at least 80% of what we eat.  One of the girls asked how much we do now and I honestly have no idea.  And I’m not sure how I’d measure something like that really.  What about you?  Do you have garden goals to grow a certain percentage of what you eat?  How do you measure it? #fullandsimplelife

I haven’t spent much time in my garden lately. Due to getting ready for market season for my actual job that isn’t gardening, I haven’t even been checking on it daily anymore...which is evident when seeing more giant zucchini’s!! So #inmygarden today is some oversized zucchini, more orange pumpkins and finally some red tomatoes!!! I’m going to harvest everything tonight 👩🏼‍🌾 Happy gardening!

Sometime in the middle of the night, my rain gauge overflowed! At noon yesterday I emptied it (it was at 4” then) so in 48 hours, we had over 12” of rain 😬 needless to say, the garden is very wet and I haven’t been in it for a few days! I did walk by it and noticed some VERY large zucchini’s that will need to be harvested today!!

We ended the #bentarrowchallenge2018 last week with some @bentarrowacres chicken cooked with tomatoes and basil over pasta.  Bent Arrow is 3+ hours away from us, but thanks to Claire we discovered @marketwagon during the challenge and it became a game changer for us!  Things that we thought we’d have to do without like yogurt and cheese were suddenly accessible AND locally made!  If you want to know more about Market Wagon, head to the blog now to read about our experience.  Plus they have a promo code just for Full & Simple readers for $10 off your first $40 order! 😱 #sponsored #fullandsimplelife

🍉Watermelon report! 🍉
I cracked open the watermelon today!! It should have been picked a day or two earlier as it had some cracking inside. The good news it was picked before it got mushy and still tastes wonderful!! Happy gardening! 👩🏼‍🌾

Erika here! 👋🏻. I thought maybe I’d try at #fridayintroductions. So here are five things about me and what I believe:
1. I used to teach high school business until I had my son and then I became a SAHM.
2. We’re big @daveramsey fans here.  We took just under two years to become debt free...I was even counting toilet paper squares I used people!  We were weird but now we’re free!
3. I fully believe that local food is a Church concern.  By eating locally, you can support and get to know your community.  You help put dollars into a community and once the physical needs are being met in the community, they are able to receive the message of Christ. 
4. Simplicity does not mean stark minimalism for everyone.  For some it’s saying no to going out every night on the weekend.  But whatever simplicity means to you, embrace it.  Make margin for your soul to breathe and hear from God.
5.  Contradictions are from the world and are meant to keep us in boxes.  Christ was fully man and fully God...hello, contradiction!  You can love gardening and hate dirt under your nails.  You can get glam and also love the sweet Simple country life.  God made you, so embrace that! #fullandsimplelife 📸: @kaitlynndeboyphotography

Just feeling really grateful today. #fullandsimplelife
Today #inmygarden, it is looking very sad!! Between the birds, squirrels, and a storm, all of the sunflowers (beside 2 extra strong ones) have all broke and fell over. The tomatoes are still refusing to ripen. Last week I pulled the cucumbers out so that area is empty. We have another watermelon ready to be picked but we haven’t finished eating the last one!!! The bush beans are almost ready for harvesting already!! I expected them to take longer, I feel like I just planted them!!! Happy gardening! 👩🏼‍🌾

I’m still reeling from my trip to Dixter yesterday. I’ve got a week off work coming up, so I reckon a return trip is needed.
I’m still reeling from my trip to Dixter yesterday. I’ve got a week off work coming up, so I reckon a return trip is needed.
I planned and prepped all month striving for perfection for yesterday’s farm-to-table lunch.  Things didn’t all turn out exactly like I planned but they were still perfect.  I got to laugh and cry and pray with a couple of the best ladies.  Things were perfect because God showed up and gave me exactly what I’ve been needing this summer.  The phrase “Farm to table and table to soul” has never been more appropriate. #fullandsimplelife

Gardening has taught me patience. I've waited a few years for this rewarewa to flower, and what a magical flower it is! 🌹🌱 I saw a photo of this tree not long after I had planted it in the earth. It would have been a least a year from when it was a seed, to when I planted it. So 6 years to the first flowering but definitely worth the wait! 🌱🙏☀️💚

Today I get the privilege of hosting a couple of my favorite ladies in ministry for a farm to table lunch at my house.  I’m so excited to share this passion of mine with them and to also get an extra shove toward the Lord...because being around these ladies always sets me on fire! Follow along in my stories today to “join” us! #fullandsimplelife

On this busy hump day, let’s not forget to stop and smell the ... hydrangeas! Summer is winding down and these blooms won’t be around much longer.  #livelifetothefullest #summer #theartofgardening #livingmybestlife
Took this photo at a nursery since I loved the contrast of the lemon-lime dracena with that amazing dark color of the alocasias. I was so inspired, when I got home later that day, I planted my own alocasia polly next to the lemon lime dracena I have in my front planters! 😂😍💚

#inmygardentoday there are over 20 pumpkins, watermelon so close to being ready, a huge zucchini plant that won’t stop producing, towering sunflowers 🌻, tomatoes that don’t want to ripen, so much basil, flowering bush beans, carrots for our bunny, a few (HOT) peppers, and there are still some cucumbers fresh for the picking! 👩🏼‍🌾

Starting the week with fresh flowers on my nightstand is the best.  Also, check out my eucalyptus baby!  So excited that the seeds I started this spring are still going strong! #fullandsimplelife

We finally got around to baking the two little pumpkins Oliver picked a few weeks ago! We got just enough purée for one pumpkin pie (still haven’t gotten that far 😂) we also got a nice snack of roasted pumpkin seeds, yum!!! We counted the pumpkins today and found 21...I’m sure we’ll end up with more than that because there seems to be a new one found every day!! Pumpkin pie for everyone 😄

We are supposed to get rain today!! I’m crossing my fingers that we actually get it because the garden desperately needs it!! Just in case it does rain, I went out to pick a bowl of tomatoes for Oliver to snack on today! It’s one of his favorite snacks!!

It’s another #inmygarden Monday!

I have so many cucumbers I’m forcing people to take them!! I even gave some to the guy that mows my neighbors lawn that I’ve never talked to before 😂

The tomatoes are slowly ripening up but not as fast as I would like. 
I’m also swimming in zucchini. I pulled one of the plants that was dying so now I’m down to 2 zucchini plants. Today I froze a bunch of shredded zucchini.

The bush beans are coming in nicely! It’ll be nice to have some fresh beans again!

Oliver’s 3-4’ tall sunflowers ended up getting about 10’ tall 🌻 
Happy Monday!

Another awesome meal for the #bentarrowchallenge2018.  I did splurge for non-local Parmesan, but I’ve been so excited to try eggplant parm especially since my eggplant plants made exactly zero eggplants last year. 👎🏻. I made the sauce from scratch today with garden basil, garlic and tomatoes and onions from the farmers market.  The noodles are from @bigbrickhousepasta.  And the bread was some of the ciabatta that I made yesterday topped with homemade pesto. #fullandsimplelife

This newly installed raised wooded bed (1.2m x 4.5m has been incredibly producing (nonstop!) just after a month it was built (see previous posts). The key lies in good mix of soil: top soil or garden soil, compost, composted animal manure and at the bottom of the bed, a good layer of decaying waste from the garden. Another key is a good succession of seeding and planting and association of different plants and veggies. Regular feeding of homemade liquid fertilizer from comfrey and nettles are also very beneficial. 
From this vegetable bed, I’ve been harvesting salads, herbs, round zucchinis, strawberries, corns, sweet peas, beans, beetroots, sweet potato tops, kales, radish, carrots... -

This spring I noticed I was getting a bunch of volunteer tomato plants coming up around the boarder of my garden area. First I pulled them out since they were partially in the yard...then after more kept coming up, I decided to let them grow!! I had quite a few different tomato varieties growing last year so I have no idea what they are!! So now I have tomatoes growing amongst the watermelon vines!!

I'm no florist but myself and my team regularly cut flowers for our bothy. Looking and thinking about how plants associate in a vase can often help us develop ideas that translate well in the garden.

Not much happened in the garden this past week. The temperature cooled way down so the tomatoes quit turning red and the cucumbers slowed way down. Two of the zucchini plants started to die, regrew, produced way to many zucchini’s, and are now dying again!! Happy gardening! 👩🏼‍🌾

These are the only berries from the elderberry bushes I got for Mother’s Day this year.  BUT after getting them, we ended up finding two wild bushes on our property! Not sure if I should be excited for the excess or disappointed that we spent money on the other two. Lol!  The berries on those haven’t ripened all the way yet, but my plan this year is to dry them all so I can make elderberry syrup later this winter during cold and flu season.  How do you preserve your elderberries?  #fullandsimplelife

Have you signed up for the #bentarrowchallenge2018 yet?  My friend Claire and her husband Adam over at @bentarrowacres have created a challenge for people to eat local for an entire month!  We are going to try our best to join them in creating awareness for local food by signing up!  Hopefully I can get a blog post up early this week with some of my thoughts, concerns and my plan!  Thanks Claire for inspiring us to all try harder! #fullandsimplelife •••

Like most of you, I find IG a hard place.  On the one hand I love it.  I’m a visual person so the beautiful pictures are my jam.  And I love being inspired to try new things in my garden, home and life because of women willing to share their lives with us all.  But on the other hand, I can easily fall into comparison.  So a week or two ago, I started to make myself do a “But she doesn’t...” whenever I felt down.  When I came across a post that made me feel like I was less than the woman, I would think of one thing that she wasn’t doing that I was.  This was not to bring the woman down, but rather to make me remember that NONE of us does it all.  I had planned to write a blog post about it, but my IG friend @sarabytheseason beat me to it!  So in the spirit of my “But she doesn’t...” and Sara’s post, here are some things I don’t do.
•••
This picture is real life...but I hadn’t changed my outfit in about 24 hours when I took it.  I don’t shave my legs or even wash my hair every time I shower.  I don’t go to the grocery store every week (my husband will go after his night classes now if I really need something). I wear most clothing items 2+ times before washing unless they really get sweaty.  Most of our lunches are things like boxed macaroni or Totino’s pizza.  I don’t cloth diaper.  I sometimes leave the kitchen a mess overnight.  I don’t monitor my kids’ screen time (and I’m sure they get too much).
•••
What about you? How do you deal with comparison?  What don’t you do so that you can do what is important to you?  #fullandsimplelife

Woke up to a happy baby, clean kitchen and this beauty we picked yesterday.  Got to have a conversation with just my oldest.  We all watched an episode of The Great British Baking Show before deciding to have toast made of homemade bread and jam at 9:00.  Oh how I’ll miss these slow mornings when school starts! #fullandsimplelife

The afternoon light gives our borders a painterly quality that I love so much. We had a great day in working the kitchen garden with our volunteers today. Busy cutting back, propping up and editing in an attempt to extend the season of interest. #voulteering  #gardenvolunteer #kenwoodhouse #englishheritage #theartofgardening
Anyone else have a to-do list for today that is longer than they can possibly get done? ...which is clearly why I’m procrastinating! #fullandsimplelife
