Growing Green!

It's been a while since we have updated stuff about the garden, hence here are snapshots of what became of some plants growing quietly in their own time!

There is a long sweet pepper, nice and green and currently looking very crispy!

and how it looks now

Part of the maintenance involves watering it with seaweed concentrate mixed with water. Still currently figuring out the best fertilizer to use, whether some home made compost which could be tricky to start with, or some store bought organic fertilizers.

There were also some coriander seeds that were left to germinate at the kitchen window sill, where there was some sunlight streaming in.

and after

The little green leaves behind the window (on the photo above) are the tomatoes snatched for free during a town fair. One of the fair's purpose was to encourage people to grow their own herbs and vegetables in their own homes. During that time, there were already several greens sprouting from little pots at the backyard, hence it was a pleasant surprise to get these little seedlings for free! And now well more than 1.5 feet in height!



...about to bear fruit too!

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
