Cool chillies and a new direction.....

Spring has definitely sprung into action around the garden the past week with flowers and fruit everywhere. The mystery chilli seeds Jessy brought home from his mexican day have started sprouting, the first of the Jalepeno seeds I planted have also started to sprout, and most exciting of all I have had 2 of the 4 Ultra White Bhut Jolokia seed come up as well. Earlier this week I managed to get some soil to transplant the Bishop Crown and Razzamatazz seedlings, and are all showing signs of new...

So, it's been a busy few days since I posted my last update and I have been planting, transplanting and getting some new information on growing chillies in an aquaponics system. As well as that my first few Grosse Lisse tomatoes are now bearing fruit as well as my first 2 pods on my California Reaper Chilli started growing.

 

Before I begin I am urging anyone who can afford it to donate to my project. I am having trouble getting parts for the build and need materials to keep ...

G'day everyone!

Been playing in the dirt most of today and as always hoping my efforts are fruitful (LOLz!). So what did I accomplish......

Well I sarted by potting some newly rooted cuttings of Lemon Balm and Apple Mint. Sown seeds of an as yet unclassified chilli (My son brought me some seeds from chillies used in cooking for his mexican day), some Cherry Belle Radish, a few more marigolds and a Pumpkin seed I have had sitting on the fridge for a few weeks. Also sorted the chill...

It's been a few big days lately, family time with Father's Day, Jordan started her vlog (except it has been nearly a week since she asked to get on the camera) and trying to get the parts I need to start a basic aquaponics setup running.

I realise that my budget isn't going to let me build as quickly as I want, but I am planning on building a small system mainly using a trickle system for leafy greens, and incorporating a grow bed for trying different plants to see how they grow in this...

Had to have a laugh today....

 I had just finished planting a beautiful white begonia and some chocolate mint to the front garden, a work in progress as I am trying to pretty up the dull garden beds I have available to work  with. I decided to move some plants from the greenhouse to transplant and made my way happily to the shed. Now our back yard has only one gate, and I always try not to go through the house with plants.

 I opened the gate and the chickens bolted ...
