What’s Growing This Weekend


March is almost here, and soon I will be very busy planting seeds, so I thought I would take some pictures of the plants growing in my house. I have nearly 30 house plants, and I really enjoy living in a jungle =-)

Cabbage

Cabbage

I don’t like cabbage, and I refuse to eat it, unless it is in the form of Sauerkraut; but last year, I decided to grow some. The plants grew quite well, but something ate them, so I don’t have experience growing them to fruitition.

This year, I planted some in the house, simply to watch them grow. They are growing pretty well, and I figure as they grow bigger, I can snip off leaves and put them in a salad or on a sandwich. The idea is to gain experiance growing cabbage, and maybe expand my pallete a bit.

Apache Blackberry

Apache Blackberry

Above are Apache Blackberries, which are new to me. I haven’t yet tried the berries, but I’m hopefull that they will remind me of my childhood days in the berry patches. I would spend hours eating berries, and still bring home a few gallons of berries. I was always picking one type of berry or another.

Dwarf Banana

Dwarf Banana

I have two Dwarf Banana trees in my living room. The leaves are big, and beautiful, with an added bonus: They bear fruit ! I have had them for nearly a year, and when they get to year 3, they should bear tiny bananas. I can’t wait.

Elderberries & Cherry Bush Clippings

Elderberries & Cherry Bush Clippings

I’ve posted pictures of some of my Propogating experiments. Here we can see some Elderberry clones, and a Cherry Bush clone. I really didn’t think the cherry bush would grow, and the steams seemed brittle, but the buds are trying to pop open. I’ve tried the cherries last summer, and they were a bit sour, but worth the effort.

Early Tomatoes

Early Tomatoes

Finally, I snapped a picture of my tomato plants. I’ve planted them WAY too early. Normal tomato seeds shouldn’t be planted until AT LEAST April, but I’m planning on growing them in buckets, either in the house, or in the Greenhouse, if it is warm enought.
