Volunteer compost squash.

As I suspected these are very very likely spaghetti squash volunteers. Here’s the plumpest squash baby so far! I hope to get a dozen to last me through the season!

Three sisters May 2018

I found some old corn seeds so I had enough for a very small patch and after they started growing strong I decided to expand the corn patch. Hopefully it will mean I will get 2 good staggered harvest of corn. The peas I also found laying around! Hey why not! And before I knew…

Vegetable planter :) wow!

Feb 14th 2017 April 1st above! Still so neat! I just added the trellis for the tomatoes since I don’t have a cage. And this below is April 19th. Only 18 days from when I put the trellis in and now you can barely see it! Growth is insane! The squash is turning into a…

Potting up Mango from seed.

My mango seed #2 is looking good. I know most people will wait until it starts rooting and growing leaves before putting it in soil but I have had bad success transferring sprouting seeds in that way so I decided to pot it up already. Also there is some debate as to which direction to…
