I've been rather busy travelling the last days and have now returned with four young tomatoes (actually, I just asked by proxy for some seeds ... woops. 😊) and one lamb's ear plant (so soft! 🌱💚).
#plants make me happy.
Building a raised bed is a compromise between watering comfort and personal height. I learned that the hard way.
(Will definitely stick to my plan next time and not add another 20-"oh, this is somewhat low for planting, I should change that"-centimeters. 😅) #plants
Aye, the garlic is sprouting! :) 🌱
Also, I'm stunned by how many varieties (7500+) of tomatoes exist. 💚
I'll try growing tomatoes again this year after failing to do so for quite some time ... any recommendations about which varieties are rather robust to being cultivated by a n00b? 😅 #plants
Waiting for spring. The green inside as well as the pale green outside are not nearly enough. #plants
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. 💚
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.
