TERRACE GARDEN UPDATE : JUNE 2014

This is my terrace garden today.
So wet...
We still have a lot of rain through this month, it should be dry.
Will the dry season come too late?
I don't know and I'm not sure.
Big rains made my little plants broken and then rotten.
So...I have resowed some seeds to keep my garden 'green'.
Let's peek my terrace garden...

      This is for the first time I planted Brussel sprout. I have sowed six seeds, but only a plant remain. Hope this one will give me the best result.

  7. It is amazing how you keep all these plants growing in their pots, I think you have to provide them with much fertilizer and a lot of care, every hour, all day long.

    1. Thank you Janneke.
      I usually add compost every two months, or when the early harvest plants are harvested. No watering during rainy season, but on the dry season I have to watering twice a day. It's a hard work. But I love it.

      Actually I have had no idea when a couple of months ago this plant was full of mealy bug, so poor. I thought this plant would died, but after I sprayed soapy water and added more compost, this plant have been growing so well and showing me its beautiful fruits.

      For me, gardening on the dry season is better than on the rainy season. Too wet always stimulate serious problem on my garden.

  12. You grow lots of veggies Endah! How do you have time for all of them and your son? I think he is jealous. Love your basil as I grow it in a green house because of cold and rainy weather we have here now.

    1. Thanks Nadezda. Yeah, growing plant on container needs more time. I sometimes do gardening with my children. My son love to sowing the seeds, digging and harvesting veggies. And my daughter love to watering and pruning-triming. Hope your weather will be better
