My experiments with gardening

Trying to grow a garden and get rid of the tag 'plant killer'

Updates after a long time February 22, 2012

I know it has been ages since I last posted. So much has happened..I was travelling and my plants were taken care of by my neighbour.. etc etc

The cherry tomato plant is big now and has been transplanted  just now into the biggest pot I have. Also 3 brinjal saplings have been moved to bigger pots till I buy the ones perfect for them. Here is the photo.

Freshly transplanted

Of all the cucumber plants only 3 are left now because I had to leave them in my balcony while we went away. Cucumber plants throw vines and need support..once it gets attached to something you cannot move the pot so I had to leave them here. Only 3 survived the harsh summery days.

My flower seedlings(cosmos géant and mini sunflower) died inspite of my neighbour’s attention. I cannot sow them again because it is way too hot here  for something to germinate but I might try anyway.

Of the two chilli plants one has survived and is doing well. The other bigger plant(volunteer) is not well due to some disease. I am not sure what it is. The same thing happened to my jalapeño plant and basil plant also. Basil is still ok, jalapeño has died and this Chilli might die too. I cannot see any insects or anything so not sure what is up with it.

I am very proud to show the following picture. My first harvest(If I can call it that..)

Spinach and chives

Spinach is doing well. When I saw onions with sprouts, I planted them in pots and I have been getting chives regularly.

Also, My aloevera has 3 small saplings of aloe and if anyone wishes to have them I would be glad to share it.
