This year I finally discovered the world of gardening. Better late than never, huh? It’s a very exciting subject to explore…
So far, there’s cilantro, basil, chives, strawberries, and spinach that Tim and I started from seed—the cilantro seems to be growing the fastest of the bunch.
We also have a meyer lemon tree, purple cayenne pepper plant, and sampaquita flower/plant that we bought as ‘starter plants.’
Lastly, I have also been experimenting with regrowing plants from ‘kitchen scraps’ (green onions seem to have a very high success rate… updates on regrowing garlic and kale coming soon…) 10 months ago
My fiancé and I got him at the Durham Farmer’s Market in North Carolina. The farmer/vendor told us that it can grow 4’ – 6’ tall—holy moly, that’s a whole lot of heat! 10 months ago
This is a little ‘welcome home’ gift from my fiancé that I love so much!!! 10 months ago

Mel’s decided she hasn’t got green fingers afterall so there’s no more veg’ growing! We did eat some home-grown brocoli though so I’m ticking this one off! 16 months ago
Can you spot them?
I planted these around March (southern hemisphere autumn) and they have been flowering for a while but pods have finally started to form… Can’t wait to boil them and have them with a dash of salt! Or have them in a pasta dish? 17 months ago
