hey there, homesteaders!
Just thought I would start a thread showcasing some of what we have going on here at el casa de tobh, and maybe find a resolution to a stubborn avocado tree i've been fighting with for months. Excuse the grass in the pictures, they're keeping our rutabaga and spinach company XD.
Without further ado, lets get some pictures in this thread!
This is our baby avocado, been in water for about a month now and it's really taking off! much better than our other one, which is leading me to believe that the other one was put in soil too soon with too hot of a nutrient mix.
For our cat, we have some catnip
And here's our baby rutabaga, a bit top heavy from the stretch of growing in a window sill.
Some spinach, this stuff I'm really excited for. According to the seed package, the flavor is supposed to be superior when exposed to a hard freeze, so come february these guys are going to be put outside for a night or two and we'll see how they do! (temps drop to single digits in my area at that time of year, is that too cold?)
Here's the two hopefully ladies that are keeping everything company. They're nameless as they're f2's in my own breeding process. Obviously still showing very broad phenotypes. there will be another thread in Grassroots on these ladies, just thought I would share as they are part of our garden right now :)
And here's a shot of the whole group
See how sad the avocado is in the red pot? I'm pretty sure, as previously stated, that we tried to burn it to death with nitrogen considering the baby in water is doing much better. I flushed it with nearly ten gallons of water just after transplant, and it perked up a little but I worry the twisted leaves are never going to return to a normal appearance. Can anyone elaborate more on the conditions in which they thrive? Thanks for any input on any of this, as this is my first veggie garden! plenty of dirt under these nails from grass and fungii but this edible gardening is all new otherwise.
P.S. thought I would share a pic of my view.... love this valley.
