Lot of gardening works and harvesting some root vegetables

Leave a comment

I had a busy day in the garden today.

As usual ,Srinu, our car driver, helped me with all the activities in the garden.

I started by transplanting two hibiscus plants from small containers to the ground.

Also transplanted a white Butterfly pea plant in the ground. This plant was given by my sister long ago, and I had been mulling over as to where to plant it. A place receiving good sunlight is always best for flowering plants, and I planted this next to the hibiscus plant  in a sunny spot.

I saw a few Taro plants that had stopped growing. I don’t remember when I had planted them. So I decided to remove them. When I uprooted, I was surprised by what I saw. There were several well developed taro bulbs . I  Harvested almost 1kg of Taro bulbs.

Replanted a few taro plants in the same place, and I am hoping for a good harvest next season.

I noticed that my Ivy gourd is not growing well. So, the soil around the plant was loosened, and I added cow manure. Hopefully, I will see some improvements in the growth soon . Also added Ghana jeevamrutham to the soil.

I like the light green color of ferns. Ferns are very delicate plants and cannot tolerate too much light and heat. I have only one plant that is healthy . I wanted to propagate more of these and checked if there were any runners. I found two and carefully uprooted them and replanted in another pot.

I have a pink Adenium, which is still in the same plastic cover since I bought it . The plastic cover was also torn. It’s been 3 years now. Finally, transplanted it into another plastic container.

Last but not least ,I also harvested some ginger. The first time I had planted ginger, and it’s been a long time. The leaves started drying, which is a sign that it is time to harvest. I had planted three small pieces, and the result is not bad at all.

I had a satisfying day.

That’s all folks !!

Take care and stay safe.
