Growing local

I checked today and the flowers have doubled in size, the spinach has sprouted, and one garlic has sent up a green shoot as well. :-)


Now all I have to do is plant the chilli Lissa gave me, and transfer the midyim and eggplant seedlings she gave me as well :-)


Woohoo, progress!

Hooray!  Still haven't got round to planting my garlic - must do it this afternoon.  I haven't had much luck with spinach but maybe I should give it another go in a shadier part of the garden.  Hope you're having fun outside now that the weather is beautiful.

Hang out planting the eggplant cutting until it shows signs of new growth Daniel. This is an experiment after all - may not even work lol.

Just keep it moist and in a protected place until that happens. Forgot to give you the bush bean seed too....these come up in no time and are very rewarding. Let me know if you would like me to post you some.

also, if you're posting progress about the same thing, you could consider adding to the previous blog post rather than creating a new one - you can either add the new comment, or edit the previous blog post and put a heading in with the date or similar to show it's a new segment. am concerned that lots of little blog posts from one user will crowd out the other blogs in the feed list

I'm very glad! :-) You have all been inspiring me, so it delights me that I could return the favour! :-)
