I just wanted to provide an update on the various garden projects I’m currently in this winter.
The cuttings I took from the ivy have rooted. The boxwood cuttings will take a little longer to root. I haven’t seen any growth on those.
Yesterday, I started some coriander (aka cilantro) seeds I got from the grocery store. I got a big canister for $1.50. We’ll see if they work. If not, at least I have them for cooking. The coleus seeds I started have started to get some of it’s true leaves. Once they do, I’ll transplant them into individual cells. Hopefully, by the beginning of spring, I’ll have a ton of coleus to give as gifts or plant in my garden.
I also started some more African Violet leaves from the AV I got from my husband last Valentine’s Day also the AV from Walmart that blooms these variegated white and purple flowers, and the AV I got from the .99 cent store and also this white AV I got on clearance at Lowes. I started 3 leaves per plant. In a couple of months I’ll get babies that are this size:
This week, I also transplanted my radish seedlings to the garden. I placed them in front of the peas and beans I started several weeks ago. They’re just poking their little heads out this week. We haven’t seen a frost yet. The meterologists expect a frost at the end of November. Lucky us.
I collected some of my peppers for its seeds this week. I’ll start some this spring and give out some as trades. They have tons of seeds in each pepper. I got this plant on clearance at Wal-mart two weeks ago. It was only $1.40 and had these gorgeous yellow peppers.
I also collected some daisy seeds from this huge daisy bush at my apartment complex. It had a ton of seedpods on it and the maintenance men probably didn’t mind since I was picking the dead seed pods for them. No trimming for them! Hehe.
Well, that’s all for me this week. Check back next week for more of my gardening ventures.
