What's in your garden?

This page is dedicated to my home garden where I am learning and am aspired to become an #UrbanHomesteader. Check out what I am growing. I am on the #GardenTags community… so feel free to add me @niching. 

I also have an Ebay store for some of my seeds, so please check it out.

zin·ni·a 2017

In 2017, one of our hardiest plant was the #zinnias. The key to keep blooms and enjoy a longer blooming season is to keep deadheading the flowers. We are enjoying probably our 9th months of blooms from our 3 zinnia plants. The red zinnia is more prolific than the yellow zinnia which seems to suffer more from white fungus. My cure so far is to cut back the steams and give the plant a spray of dishwashing soap, olive oil and water solution. 01.01.18. 

morn·ing glo·ry 'milk·y way'

Hands down, one of my favorite vine in our garden in 2017 was the #MorningGlory ‘Milky Way’. It started blooming in September and then nothing. So, I started collecting the seeds and cutting the dead leaves while leaving the vine in tack. Miraculously, it started flowering again in late November. So, I have been deadheading the flowers and not letting it go to seeds. So far, we can lots of beautiful blooms and I hope to enjoy more blooms during this winter season in So Cal #Zone10b.

or·chids

Orchids carry an exotic essence to their presence. No home is really complete without an orchid plant. These #PhalaenopsisOrchids are simply awesome and last months if you keep the soil moist. Other than that, they require very little care. 01.01.18.
