What's my garden story on a winter Sunday? Hmm... The African violets have flowered again; they look pretty and delicate. The maroon anthuriums have been blooming regularly. The gladiolus plants have stopped flowering; that's sad. And... several colorful winter flowers saying a 'Hi!'
A few plants that replanted have new leaves; that's good news. The leaves of the chilli plant were Yellow; for sure, they had pests. I handpicked the bugs, and then pruned the plant. Oh yes, I planted the broccoli and cabbage plants in bigger containers! Let's wait and watch how they grow.
In one broad container, I had planted potatoes. These plants had grown crazily tall, and I kept telling myself to put more soil so that they can grown well. Meanwhile, the plants were turning Yellow; yes, pests. Even after spraying pesticide, the pests wouldn't go. I decided to remove those plants. When I started digging the plants out, I found baby potatoes! Who would expect that! Wish I could save these plants so that the potatoes grew well. But, no problem, I got a few potatoes.
Rexes... They are tricky, picky, and ultra delicate. I've tried growing them before, and failed. Recently, I bought a few Rexes, and have planted them in small containers. Well, honestly, only a few have managed to survive.
That's all for today. Have a great week ahead.
