Garden Update

The garden is doing so many wonderful things. Its all so very very exciting. Here are some things that got me dancing this week:
 

 
Sweetcorn. If you have been following my garden posts, you will know I have had no luck with growing sweet corn in the past. Corn needs to be planted close to each other so pollination can happen. Seeing as I live in a concrete jungle....I decided to try something radical and try to grow corn in the largest pots I could find. Success. Beautiful super soft and sugary sweet corn. I have planted a few more pots so a few lucky people will get to buy some

I got these seeds from a special aunty. It looks like an apple right? Its a cucumber. A lemon cucumber. Simply gorgeous

Ginger. Yes. I grew ginger. Look at how beautiful these rhizomes are. So soft and the flavor is insane. It will be so hard to go back to buying the shriveled stuff from the markets.

There are some more interesting things happening in the garden and there just might be a giveaway pretty soon...

Enjoy!!!

    1. Aww. The right sized containers if you are opting for container gardening are very important. If you start in small containers, the seedlings will need to be transplanted into bigger containers or into the ground at a certain point. Its all a learning process :-)

    2. Thank you Uzo. Please any idea how much the bigger sized containers go for? The type I can conveniently plant and harvest my veggies I mentioned earlier in. Thank you once again. :*

    4. Hello ma'am. Mostly edible veggies. I currently have these seeds: lettuce, parsley, garlic chives and kale. I desire to also buy these seeds: beetroot, basil...in short as much seeds as I see in Shoprite. :D

      Thank you so much for your help!

    5. Your herbs - the parsley and garlic chives can thrive in small pots. At least 5 inches in diameter. Lettuce and kale need the medium sized pots ideally....Cost of these pots depends on the kinds and where you get them from. I use decorative pots for my flowers which are higher in price than the plain plastic terra cotta ones found around town
