Garden Journal Weekly, 2nd February 2022
What a fun date to be doing the Garden Journal curation on. 2/2/2022, all the twos! Hopefully that's lucky numbers and not unlucky. I do like how it fits in with both the American way of writing dates and the European way. I like it when things are inclusive. 🙂
I'm the first person to admit that I'm terrible at keeping house plants alive, so I live vicariously through others sharing their successes. This week @goldenoakfarm shares her winter house plant garden and expresses her surprise at not having certain ones die on her. That I'm familiar with, but considering how many plants she has throughout the house, I'm also pretty sure she does a better job than I would at keeping on top of their needs. She certainly has a lot more knowledge to share on them than I have.
Someone else growing in pots is @deswita with her aglonema plants. Looking at her step by step instructions on their care, I already know I can't be trusted with them, but don't they just look stunning! I want to reach out and touch those shiny leaves.
I like to see @isdarmady's updates on the hydroponics. This week there were a few complications due to hot weather which caused fertiliser problems and some damage to plants. Thankfully it wasn't all bad news, however, and there has been plenty of harvesting too.
There is so much happening in the Hive Garden community. @cesarj21 is battling the weeds and grass which threaten to take over the other plants. Is it all just threats, though, or are those plants holding their own? @rem-steem is growing coriander and already sneaking some tasty young leaves into meals.
I wish I could share everything, but it's time to wrap this up and get on with chores, but I look forward to seeing more of that gardening content coming in.
