Some simple things i did in the garden today.Placing some old CDs in the veggie raised beds to repel flies and to deter other pests from stealing my veggies. I don't know how effective it is but since i don't like the idea of using harsh chemicals in the garden to chase away or kill pests, this can be a good alternative, if it works. No harm trying.
I finally bought a poinsettia. I thought of not getting any this year as the blooms and plants don't last long and it is very sad to see them go every time after the season but... i did it again! Poinsettias are just so festive for the holidays, how can i resist? The gardener told me to put some ice cubes on it to prolong the colours on the leaves. I googled, most of the articles would only tell you this "Do not put ice cubes, coffee or cigarettes in the pot...". I'm confused, put or don't put? I gave it a try anyway.
This... can you reassure me that my seedling sprouts? Hah!! This is one of the sunflower seeds from Diana that i sowed and it sprouts!! I'm so happy to see this little life begins.
Okay okay, i know i shouldn't be here when i'm on medical leave (on and off for a month now, due to blur vision) but i can't help myself as i'm too used to computer and blogging now. Seeing the doctor again tomorrow, another off day for me. Oh i love being at home :))
