Sustainability Curation Digest #2 ๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ by Carpedimus - MSP

2๋…„ ์ „

Hello fellow Steemians!

This is my Sustainability Curation Digest for the week of 25/03/18 - 01/04/18 on behalf of the Minnow Support Project!

The Minnow Support Project has multiple curators on various subjects. Each week we pick five undervalued posts and the authors behind them to highlight through minnowsupport-curation. This way MSP and PAL (Peace, Abundance, Liberty) can help promote new promising writers and content creators on Steemit, and in effect reward them for doing a superior job.

Every week I will be making a list of my favorite post from the week on the subject of sustainability, eco-friendly solutions, permaculture, recycling, alternative energy, recycling, homesteading...or anything else that might help us all live in a more sustainable, eco-friendly world.

This week I want to Dedicate this curation post to something special.


Twice a year, our gardens undergoes a makeover and for the next six months it will be changing its seedlings.

So in honor of the end of the winter and the arrival of spring in one hemisphere and the end of the summer and the coming of autumn in the other half, I dedicate this Curation to sowing, planting and renewal.

So go ahead, go out to your garden, take out all the vegetables and seedlings from the passing season, rake up the soil, add some fertilizer, cover it up and read the posts I gathered here as inspiration before planning your new seasonal garden.

So lets dive in, here are my sustainability curation picks for this week:

(these posts are shown in random order; I liked all of them!)

It's Time to Plant Potatoes--Here's How by teryani

Did you had a chance to eat a potato that you grew yourself.
Beyond the wonderful and truly extraordinary taste of freshly picked potatoes compared to the ones we buy at the supermarket, perhaps the coolest part in growing potatoes, is that the final 'spoil' remains a surprise until the last minute when you finaly dig out that soil to collect those golden balls.

You may find yourself excited like a child looking for surprises in the soil and just for this amazing feeling I strongly recommend reading the wonderful post by teryani, that will guide you step by step how to plant and collect the most delicious and exciting potatoes you have ever eaten.

Thanks @teryani for such a useful and enriching post!


from 2011 TIRE PORTION OF THE GARDEN by phedizzle


The next one up is 2011 TIRE PORTION OF THE GARDEN, a post by phedizzle

Who said that to plant a vegetable garden we must dig, rake and turn the soil, build raised garden beds or in other words - work too hard?

Planting vegetables and ornamental plants in tires is a practical and relatively easy solution for those who wish to grow without committing themselves to long term work and sweating.

phedizzle's excellent post takes us on a tour of the tire plots in her garden in 2011, while sharing with us pictures of all the plants growing there.

The results and the conclusions shown in the post can teach us a lot and can save us quite a bit of effort and time.

I really recommended to check it out!

PUT SOME SEEDLINGS IN THE GROUND TODAY by hopfarmnc

A winter garden to envy...
The winter brings lots of nutritious and tasty vegetables.
With a big variety of lettuce, cherubs, cauliflower, broccoli, herbs and spices and more, winter brings a lot of green freshness and excellent nourishment.

So if your summer is over and the autumn is just starting, you are welcome to get inspiration from the green winter garden of hopfarmnc and start planting your own garden that soon will fill your kitchen with fresh and tasty vegetables.

Thanks to @hopfarmnc for sharing the wonderful garden and whetted our appetite!

TWO amendments we use to feed our soil...and GROW STRONG PLANTS! ROCK DUST and WORM POO! by rawutah

Before the plant's genetics, the irrigation plan or even the weather, soil fertility will make a huge difference between a wilting non providing garden and a lush and nourishing garden with plenty of vegetables, fruits, spices or ornamental plants.

@rawutah has an excellent recipe for soil improvement that seems to bring great results to her vegetable garden and probably can be useful to all of us!

Click on, read all about the ingredients she uses to enrich the soil and try it for yourself.

So thanks to @rawutah for sharing .. The garden looks great!

LET'S GET GARDENING! Home Gardening 101 with the Dancing Farmer by coghill

Last but not least, we have a well made video by @coghill.
He shares with us with a lot of humor and great energy all the maintenance work he performs in his raised bed garden in preparation for the new seasons and planting.

There is a lot of professional information in the video that will certainly give you some practical tools, as well as an excellent vibe from a farm that you can see is being taken care of with love.

Thanks coghill for the great info, waiting for your next posts!
