Growing local

Unpacked the dragon fruit cuttings from lovely Elaine to find roots already there. Yohoo!

New temporary home in a mini wicking bed and with transparent pot I bough at Slavos I can see plenty of new roots. Almost ready to plant out.

 Kratky set up on 24 January. I am not convinced yet. Plants in the punnet are growing just as fast, although I have to water those nearly daily. I have been cheating with the Kratky because the cucumber plants looked a bit desperate at time. So I have a small watercan, I fill and use for emergencies. Only roots on the cucumber though. That the funny part.

New citrus trees

New wicking bed for the citrus grafts. I got a few grafts from NoosaJem, which is closing down. I am very exited with all the varieties, 1 with midnight orange, fino lemon, 1 lemonade/cara blood orange , 1 tahitian lime, kaffir lime, navel orange and Meyer lemon, 1 pink grapefruit/mandarin. We should get something from those 4 trees,

Made lots of kale chips with different flavours. I think my favourite is becoming olive oil and agave syrup. Less fussing with soaking nuts.

Also sprouting mung beans for the girls and me.

I made some in the oven....once :( Dreadful. I must have done something wrong.

those kale chips look interesting, have you made them in the oven or a drier Valerie?

The cuttings must have done their own thing in the paper then Valerie - all I did was dry them off after removing them from their parents. Keen to grow aren't they? I hope you have many fruits in 2 year's time!
