”Some like it hot”
Sweet Potato. Not sure which type but I bought two at Food Lovers (the fruit and veg store) to see if I could get them to shoot -the tooth pick and suspended over a jar of water method.
The other one rotted and produced nothing.
It’s been several months since the purchase and last week I was on the verge of throwing this one on the compost as well when I noticed the shoot! Did I smile!
Mother Nature finds a way, and kudos to moi for being more patient than I am normally.
Red Legged Centipede – Cormocephalus nitidus.
Discovered while collecting some compost. They can bite and are venomous. Nothing fatal I understand, but I kept my gloves on all the same.
Montbretia just before flowering.
‘‘Up by t’shed” as they might say in some more rural parts of Northern England!
Lots of rain this past week or two and that is good for my veggie garden.
Squash on the grow
One of several pumpkins coming along nicely.
Matchstick Bromeliad. AECHMEA GAMOSEPALA
Species of Fruit Fly
Another squash on the way.
One perfect bloom. White Cosmos.
A very Merry Xmas to all my blogpals.
