Vegetable Garden Updates

I havent really given a proper update on my vegetable garden. Well, it actually came out well, even better than what I expected. I had good harvest (!!) especially with Spinach and it gave us a fresh supply every week for Joshua. I recently got rid of it, since I couldnt resist the pests that were around. The Ladies Finger grew up fast and we had a few ladies fingers in our curries & sambar. The bitter gourd turned out to be a flop with the watermelon suppressing the rest. I actually didnt know that it was watermelon 😦 I curse my ignorance!! The worst part was the presence of some white powdery substance. I am yet to find out what it is and the ways to control it. My immediate response was to get rid of those plants to save my other inmates of ‘Shalom’. As of now, I have started the veggie garden again with Spinach.
I thank God for the works of His marvelous hands, for the variety of vegetables He has provided us with! May the Great Lord bless our efforts. Amen

Easter Vacation & Garden Updates

The trip to Nagercoil for Easter was great. We were surprised to find it heavily raining, in contrary to the scorching heat at Chennai. Joshua was too busy, going out for bike rides with my dad and entertaining people 😉 He simply didnt look for me 😦 I fell sick on reaching Chennai. I was down with fever and Low BP. I am fine now after two doses of tablets.

My Garden updates goes like this…..3.

ChrysanthemumThis was how my Chrysanthemum looked a week back, just before the vacation. Its a lot different now, having lost its bloom n vigour. canna-lilly I got this from the local nursery and I just love it.
Coleus I am so fond of Coleus. It grows so easily with not much care. I love it for the varied colours it comes in.

There are two more additions to my ‘Shalom’ garden. A dwarf Ixora and another Rose (Yellow colour). Another happy news!! I have started the vegetable garden by sowing Ladies finger, Tomato and a few other seeds. The progress is in fact very good.
