What you up to, my orange pips have sprouted, my lemon pips are now little plants.

The lemon thyme has been cut back, and put in the green house.

Chili's and tomatoes are still growing.

Amazing.

No aubergines this year, maybe next year.

Brought the turmeric indoors now.

Saffron is coming along lovely.

Will have to pickle some celery.

The red cabbages are taking ages to provide some cabbage heads.

Carrots, and purple kale are doing OK.

The garden has been inspiring in 2017. I have really enjoyed it.

You must be in the southern hemisphere.

We had our first frost here this morning, so no more gardening this year. My garden started off good, then I was gone for a bit and it went to shit Chuckle
I did get a few big red peppers though Cheer

Happy birthday Beans. You beat me on the peppers, I didn't get any sweet peppers, I over pruned it, that will teach me, if you prune it too much, you don't get any fruit. I was supposed prune the top not so much underneath.

LOL

I'm learning, I will do better next year, I hope.

My flowers still look lovely, they're forevermore.

I grew some plants outside this summer, some flowers, i put them in pots and i got some of those apartment boxes and used them as well. I tried to grow some weed as I had gotten seeds from the seed bank, but I didn't realize you have to soak the seeds for 2 weeks before you plant them. If you don't I don't think they can crack the shell. Anyways, they never grew. Before anyone gets excited I have a license but other than that, by June 18th next year 420 is legal in my country, the first country in the G7 to legalize it.

I am hooked,
on growing my own food, not weed Chuckle
Though if I was given seed Yeah3

My grow tables worked okay, the tomatoes have taken over almost the whole space on them now. Lettuce all gone (my bad for not replacing with more). Currently plenty of spinach, kale, cabbage and ummm? Courgettes
And researching making my own vertical ones.

Now have my heart set on a green house with maybe some outdoor garden around the outside, gonna have to make my man feel happy before I land that one on him Chuckle

They've always grown for me by putting them in dirt and keeping it moist. But the cracking the shell thing, I've had a few plants that got 2" tall with the shell still on them. I carefully pulled the shell apart for them. They had little shriveled starter leaves on them. But they pulled through.
