It's December already. How fast the year has gone by!
I sowed seeds of several vegetables, a few weeks ago; waiting for all of them to sprout. Meanwhile, replanted a few pots; those plants needed new and better soil. I found many earthworms in the pots; put a couple of earthworms inside the compost bin.
What's surviving, you ask? All the ornamental and flowering plants are fairing well. The terrace garden has colors varying from dark green to dark brown; and looks pretty. Apart for these plants, curry leaf plants, coleus aromaticus plants (doddapatre), and chilli plants are fit and fine (photo 1).
Parsley plant looks lovely; I'm yet to use it in a dish. Both the double beans creeper and lablab creeper are growing (photo 2). One of the lablab (avarekai) creepers has flowers at our land garden. Our kittens love to destroy creepers; lost a few plants. :-)
I've been wanting to grow Alternanthera sessilis plants. At our land garden, the brown-red variety has grown well; on our terrace garden, the green variety has grown and bloomed flowers. These plants have medicinal properties, and we make a variety of dishes with the leaves. Spinach plants are tiny but healthy. The gongura plants have a few leaves, which is a good sign; hopefully, these plants grow well and have stronger roots (photo 3).
I also had several fenugreek plants; now only the last bit of these plants are surviving (photo 4). I've planted more seeds of fenugreek. Will see them sprout in a week or so.
How is your garden, and what veggies are you growing?
