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…

2013 New Loquat tree

The big one is about 4ft tall and I bought from a store. The little one was picked out from under a neighbours loquat tree. He’s only a foot tall and I randomly planted him with my last years aubergines for now.

Lotus seeds. New project!

Wish me luck! So I bought these seeds on eBay. They’re rock hard. I read you have to scar the outer shells to reveal the creamy white inner part. So I filed away for a long time on most of them, then dropped them in the water. Lets see what happens next! Keep watching! As…

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…
