I’ve been growing a sweet granadilla plant for a year now. It stayed in seedling stage for quite some time. Now, it is going through a growth spurt. It is 2 feet tall and still growing! In the past month alone, I have re-potted it twice. I’ve added stakes for support. Since it’s a vine, I […]

Hello all, I have news to share! I’ve moved out of my downtown apartment and into a house in a quiet neighbourhood. This has been both sad and exciting. Sad, because I had to give up my garden plot. I now live too far away from it to maintain it. However, I now have a garden […]

Hi all, In my last post, I had planted seeds. Let’s see how they’re doing! Here are the seedlings as of three and a half weeks ago, April 3rd.   A week later I removed the humidity dome and placed the tray in the patch of sunlight near the patio door. I don’t do this every day, but […]

After a long break, I am growing grocery store fruits again! Over the past couple of years, most of my indoor growing experiments – pomegranate, peanut, and avocado, to name a few – have died of neglect. I’ve been so focused on vegetable gardening in my community garden plot that I didn’t make time for much else, which is a shame […]

This year I planted cloves in the ground, following instructions from a Harrowsmith article. I feel much more confident about my chances of success this year. According to the […]

So it’s been a while since I’ve attempted to grow anything from a grocery store plant, but winter is coming so that means it’s time for some indoor entertainment. I will show you how to sprout tamarind seedlings. I chose to grow tamarind this time because a bunch of my recipes call for it. It is a […]

This post is a spin-off from Growing Grocery Store Plants: pomegranate, sweet granadilla and lemon. Due to the popularity of that post I am making a separate entry for the avocado plant instructions to make things more organized. GROWING AVOCADO There are two avocado plants on my windowsill, and each one was grown using a […]

So I’ve been wanting to grow passion fruit for a while. It’s a beautiful plant. Flowers bloom on the vine, their petals white with purple fringe, the pistil large and prodtruding far from the center with its twisting stamens. It’s a flower that is exotic to me, living in Canada where passion fruit does not naturally grow. The only place that it might exist […]
