Look how amazing the lavender is looking… it brightens my day every morning when I see it so colourful and flowery.
Also, it is a treat to the camera so I took the chance do some practise…
Have a nice start to the week 🙂
Yesterday, while watering the plants I noticed something weird on the peach tree, like a reaction or something. When I stopped and took a closer look… one of the black things moved!! Arghh! Bugs!!!
I looked around the web for solutions and among others I found this page that proposes natural remedies. Since I didn’t have time for doing a maceration of nettle, or for brewing onions I tried the easiest of the ideas: spray the tree with a solution of neutral soap in water.
If it doesn’t work I think I’ll go for the onion or the garlic brew… basically because these are the next easy ones… since I have those in my kitchen unlike the stinging nettle!!
Has this ever happened to you? What did you do?
Please cross fingers with me for it to work!! 😉
The tomatoes we sown on iogurt pots have grown enough to be transplanted into bigger pots.
This time I chose round pots instead of trugs because I read that tomatoes need deep soil to grow.
I had two small pots, one with three seedlings and one with four. One one hand I wanted to plant the seedlings with some space in between but on the other hand I was afraid that when separating one from the other I would damage the roots… Finally I decided that since I am learning about this growing stuff I could try one thing with each and see which one works better.
Another doubt I have is if four plants in one pot are going to be too crowded… I honestly have no idea how big they are gonna get! I guess we’ll see.
Although the weather is being quite mild these days I am not sure the plants are still ready to stand the nights outside when the temperature drops, they look so small yet!! So for the moment we have them on our living room with the mint and we’ll take them outside when they look stronger and the nights are a bit less cold.
Hope you had a great weekend! 🙂
