I collected a little box of poppy seeds last week, then yesterday, I was gifted wild flower seeds by a friend.
Our lawn will be so damn beautiful - no later than next year. πŸ’š

My Chaenomeles Japonica (japanese quinces) I got from seeds are coming along fine, I hope to grow them to little shrubs by the end of summer. πŸŒ±πŸ’š

I want to grow them in pots as my parents also want one or two for their yard - I wonder if this is possible, can anybody advise?

I have now six tomato younglings. (Some more vegetables hopefully to come soon.) Also, I'll try to grow those beautiful Maule's quinces from my grandmother's garden.

I hope they'll grow strong. 🌱

What are your podcasts recommendations on or ? 🌱

(Preferably de/en/fr language.)

I fucking hate fungus gnats.
Just. So. Annoying. FlyingRightIntoMyFacestopitARGH!

Why didn't I just bake the earth before potting, augh!

Thing that felt weird to me during the last days: charging a flower pot.

(A good friend gifted me a smart flower pot for christmas which has a moisture as well as a "fertility" sensor and indicates whether the plant is thirsty/in need of nutrients. Also, there's an app for that. 😏)

Will probably try it out next year, let's see how it matches e.g. my feeling about when to water the chosen plant.

Accidentally seeded some cucumbers - the younglings are now residing beside the herbs and avocadoes on my windowsill.
Hopefully there'll be enough light to grow them til next year.

Other than that, I planted some garlic (Aliium sativum sativum) and at the same time took care of some strawberry plants which were overtaking the bed outside.

I love all the different shades of green plants bring into my life. πŸ’š

My avocado's eleven leaves just went from the shy, fresh childhood-green to a darker, more mature green over the last two weeks. In another pot, seedlings that will grow indoors over winter just open their first two light green leaves and yet in another pot the lemon balm's green defies the autumn's duller colours outside.

I feel blessed. 🌱

Seperated quince seeds from some quinces I had lying around.
I read they need a bit of cold until spring and think about "planting' them in an empty pot on my balcony. Or should I leave them unearthed for now?

Please advise. 🌱
