Dec 2017. Volunteers from compost and asparagus one month growth

21 Dec

So tall! Over a foot tall! Unfortunately I do not know how old these crowns are. I am going to assume one year crowns. Impulse buy 🙂

I think I have some kind of squash! First time used some compost. I have a closed bin which possibly has zucchini seeds from the old zucchini I grew earlier this year or spaghetti squash seeds. I hardly buy any squash. So excited to see what we are getting!

Also I see a couple of tomatoes. We had a random volunteer that grew and grew and grew. It was a pear yellow cherry tomato and was very productive so these are likely from that.


2013 New Loquat tree

20 Jun

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.



Lots of lovely lotus leaves

Rehoming growing lotus

24 Mar

I moved everything around a little bit as the lotus water was getting yuckie and it needed a bigger home. I found this fish bowl laying around so hopefully it will be perfect for my little lotus.

Also added rocks to the vase lotus.




Lotus mini swamp

20 Mar

Guilty! I definitely should be finding a new home for these babies but I don’t have time to work out what I want to house them in. So for now, here’s my lotus mini swamps. Leaves are opening 🙂



Fast growing lotus!

9 Mar

These guys grow fast! So I took this on before work.

And took this one just now, nine hours later!


Lotus seeds growing already!

6 Mar

I’m pleasantly surprised these little guys are growing already. I was so excited to see this tiny bit of greeness emerging from one of the seeds in the water bottle experiment.


I almost forgot to check out the seeds in the jar with seeding medium in it…
