Would Love To See This Up Close




Category: Outdoor Gardening | Posted: Mon Jul 04, 2016 4:36 pm

While reading the News, I came across this great article on therapeutic gardening on the BBC.


It makes me long to have an outdoor garden of my own.


Speaking of. There's been no news on My Not So Secret Garden. In a way, that's good news because that means that the current holders of the plots are alive, well and functioning. I'd rather have them relinquish control of their plot(s?) of their own free will than be forced to due to death, injury or incapacity.


It's also good because I've only gotten the seeds thus far. I still have the other supplies and gear to get before I even think of gardening.


Even with all of this and the lateness of the season, I'm anxious to get started gardening outdoors.


On the Indoor front. I am getting a new Seed pod kit for the Aerogarden of Serendipity. This time, at the request of the Maternal Parental and on the occasion of her birthday, I'm growing Mega Cherry Tomatoes. They look pretty good in the pictures. Let's see how they turn out in the growing.


The Sweet Pickle Organic Peppers are growing very well under the artificial lighting. I saw flower buds prior to my docking the plants. I docked each pepper plant a few days ago in order to get them to branch out more. As of today, they're filling in quite nicely.



All the other plants are doing well too.


The Pelargonium is getting more and more leaves day by day. I expect it to flower within a few more weeks.


The Pineapples grown from seed are both doing very well. The Greater pineapple is big enough for a six inch pot while the Lesser pineapple is trying to play catch up via its growth habits. It's hard to believe that they were planted the same time.


The 'seedless' Navel orange tree has six true leaves on it.


The Aloe Vera has me worried it's going to come to life and start demanding a feeding.


The Lemongrass, despite being trimmed into obscurity, is rising once again to its former height of almost as tall as I am.


The Spider plant, newly placed in a larger pot a few weeks ago, is already starting to outgrow it.


The Snake plant is nearly my height and almost impossible to lift at this point. I have it on a rolling stand to move it around.


The Two Basils are doing alright. I think I need to get more water in both pots somehow, without spilling it all over my carpet.


That's about it for this update. Thank you for reading. Please, enjoy your day. :)
