It's a cool & drizzly morning here so far so it's a great time to get some work done in the greenhouse. Around here we grow things year round so there's always something to be done. How about you, are you working toward those dreams and goals of growing all kinds of goodness?

Its time for #sowing. After a long time of waiting. We finaly sow some peas.
Het is tijd om te zaaien. We hebben weer wat doperwten gezaaid. #seed#seeds
Finally! After about four weeks in water, the rosemary cuttings produce roots. (Taken from the top of the plant, where they are softer.) // Istedenfor å så fra frø, forsøker jeg å etablere en rosmarinplante fra en bunt kjøpt i butikken.

There is a season…turn, turn, turn🎶 Same with your garden beds. It’s time to talk some dirt and chat crop rotation🌱 Crop rotation is another essential practice towards achieving growing success. Basically, if you grow the same crops in the same bed year after year, the soil will become depleted of the needed nutrients to grow those crops. Crop rotation not only helps keep your soil’s fertility healthy, it also reduces soil-borne diseases and pests that are dwelling in the dirt. Some crops are heavy feeders (lettuce, cabbage, squash, tomatoes, corn), depleting the soil of many valuable nutrients. To keep the soil balanced, follow heavy-feeding crops with ones that give back to the soil like legumes. Or follow with light-feeders like root veggies and herbs. The other key, is to remember that crop rotation applies to entire vegetable families, meaning, you can’t follow broccoli with kale or cabbage because they are all from the Brassica family. Same goes for squash and cucumbers, or tomatoes and peppers. Companion planting and cover crops also help keep the soil balanced, but when used in combination with crop rotation, you’re giving your soil the best possible care. And trust me, as I sit here staring blankly at my garden plans, I am still trying to figure out where to put what🤔 When you try to figure in companion planting, crop rotation and sun requirements…well, let’s just say it’s a lot like playing garden Tetris. How are your growing plans coming along? All your seed orders in yet?💚

Sunflower sprouts in 4 stages, propagated in 10 days using the jar method. 🌿
I myself prefer to grow these on a plate using a bit of cottonwool. It takes less time and you get this beautiful little sunflower forest to look at.
So while rain delays play...here’s a nice rainy day activity for you: testing the pH of your soil!
According to Alys Fowler’s The Thrify Gardener, you can cook a red cabbage and use the cooking water when mixed with your soil to provide you with an idea whether you have more acid or alkaline soil based on the colour. Now, I’m not sure whether it’s really worked or not and I can’t quite decide whether the colour is now more green than blue but if that means I have neutral soil bordering on alkaline then I’ll take that ☺️👍

Another day, another #catalogandcoffee ☕ The weather is warming up (for a couple days, at least) and garden plans are being made. I want to PLANT ALL THE THINGS and hubby wants ALL THE TOOLS😆.................@burpeeseedco
Daun Nilam or Patchouli Leaf is one of my new herb collection. In addition to its perfumery uses, patchouli also repels insects and is often used in the east to scent bed linens and keep fleas and other pests at bay while Chinese medicine uses the herb to treat headaches, colds, nausea, diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Does anyone here also grow Patchouli?
Perawatan tanaman hias berduri ini cukup mudah.
Ikuti trik berikut ini agar tanaman hias kaktus Kamu tumbuh dengan cantik:
1. Tanaman kaktus bisa cepat mati jika terlalu lama diletakkan di tempat lembap. Untuk itu, cobalah Kamu letakkan kaktus di tempat yang berangin dan teduh selama tiga hari sekali.
2. Jangan menjemur langsung tanaman kaktus di bawah paparan sinar matahari. Hal ini bisa membuat tanaman kaktus Kamu terbakar. Tanaman kaktus yang terbakar memiliki tampilan berwarna cokelat kehitaman pada ujungnya.
3. Siram kaktus minimal dua minggu sekali menggunakan spray. Hal ini dimaksudkan agar kaktus tidak cepat lembap. Ciri tanaman kaktus yang lembap, permukaan daunnya akan terasa lembek ketika Kamu pegang dengan ujung jari.
4. Berilah nutrisi pada tanaman kaktus. Idealnya pupuk NPK, asupan yang sangat diperlukan oleh semua jenis tanaman hias, terutama kaktus. Kamu bisa memperoleh pupuk tersebut di pedagang tanaman hias. Cara pemberian pupuknya pun sangat mudah. Letakkan pupuk di permukaan tanah, lalu timbun kembali agar pupuk tersebut tidak menguap.
5. Media tanam berpengaruh pada proses pertumbuhan tanaman. Maka, gantilah media tanam. Jika Kamu tinggal di daerah berudara sejuk seperti Bandung dan Malang, Kamu tidak perlu melakukan pergantian media tanam karena cuaca yang mendukung. Namun, untuk Kamu yang tinggal di daerah yang bercuaca panas, sebaiknya perlu mengganti media tanam.
6. Pilih pot yang memiliki permukaan dinding dan bagian bawah yang porous. Tujuannya, agar ketika tanaman disiram, air akan cepat mengalir dan tak mengembang di permukaan pot.
Yuk rawat kaktusmu, agar semakin tumbuh dengan cantik 😍

Growing rosemary via stem cuttings🌿 Spending a snowy day potting up my rosemary stem cuttings now that they’ve rooted up so nicely. So many kind folks asked some great questions the other day in regard to propagating your own stem cuttings, so I just wanted to share some extra info that helped in successfully rooting. First of all, any woody herb works great for this type of propagation—sage, thyme, oregano and lavender all work just as well as rosemary. The other keys to success, aside from selecting a stem that has both old and new growth and only submerging it half-way deep in water, is to make sure to give your cuttings a jar of fresh water each week. I use this opportunity to clean the jar as well to remove any slime. Keep in a warm, sunny spot, like a windowsill, and after 4-6 weeks, you should see happy, little roots emerging. I see loads of lovely rosemary in all our futures😀💚
Before there was Romeo & Juliet, there was tomato & basil🍅💚🌿 Given that things that go together well in the kitchen, grow together well—can you think of a more perfect pairing than tomatoes and basil? I know I’ve mentioned this adage a few times this week in regard to companion planting, but it definitely helps take some of the guesswork out. Beautiful, bushy basil repels tomato pests like hornworms and aphids, while attracting bees to come hither and pollinate the tomatoes. Basil also improves not only the taste of the tomatoes, but the overall health of the plant as well. But it’s not a one-way street, tomatoes are said to improve basil’s taste too🙌 Borage, Alliums, Calendula, Nasturtiums, asparagus and carrots are all great partners to plant with. But keep away from dill, brassicas, corn and potatoes. How’s everyone’s garden plans coming along? It’s getting really exciting😀💚
