Veg plants

So I’m ‘trying’ to grow cucumber and tomato plants.

They are currently in our living room as it is still getting too cold down here for them to be outside.

so here’s some pics of the cucumber ones.

My tomato plant

And cherry tomato

I have runner beans and another tomato plant in my little green house, testing the tomato plant to see if it can survive outside as they are getting to big for in the house now.

I also have planted carrots and parsnips to see how they turn out in big pots on the decking outside.

Spike in bloom

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

When i moved in with my partner Daz he had a cactus (which i named spike) which he was given by a friend when he left home, Back then it was tiny, but he had since re-potted it and it has grown huge.

Cactus’s are really easy to keep as they need very little water. but can be very hard to get to flower as they need to be very ‘happy’.

So after 2 years of looking after it i have finally got it to flower πŸ™‚

I all so brought a rose plant from Tesco last year and have been keeping it alive over winter hoping it will flower again this year, I noticed today that itΒ  looks like it is about to start flowering which is good. Will post pictures when it does.

I am currently growing cucumber, tomato, cherry tomato and lettuce plants.

Though it is still too cold here for them to be outside so they are sitting in our living room getting big.
