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.

We go from land plants to water plants with @juditka and the water lily pond. This was built by hand and the varied and beautiful water lilies offer shade to the many goldfish that inhabit the pond.

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.

Following on with the tradition @riverflows started last week, I'm going to choose @amberyooper to add as a beneficiary this week, for the generous delegation.

Funny, when I read this I started to daydream of me being like some sort of knight and slaying the grass-weeds-Hydra with a sword/machete. My plants will hold on, I will protect them.
Thanks for the mention @minismallholding, I sincerely appreciate the support. I also very much liked the selection of posts you made, especially @juditka ‘s stunning picture of the water lily pond, it blew my mind, how beautiful. Also the colorful plants from @deswita, nice job with those.
Greetings to all!

I am very proud of this garden pond, we really worked with it a lot, the most beautiful point of my garden, I love sitting here in the garden swing and admiring it all day in the summer!

You have such a beautiful pond and it was inspiring to read how you dug it yourselves from scratch. The goldfish, Koi and lilies add beautiful colour too.

I don't even know how I keep my house plants alive but have been quite successful this year. I never think to include house plants in the garden journal but I should. My daughter in law has been teaching me how to cut them or prune them so they fill out a little more. Scary!

Great to read this summary! I imagine we'll have a few more good posts this week with the challenge out as well.

I have two mother-in-law's tongues inside and that's it. I've even managed to kill one of them, before, so my current second one came from the survivor.

Thanks for the freshly presented garden impressions and news. I am either not much of a green thumb for indoor plants. Though I managed recently to keep an Aloevera alive, which must count as a great accomplishment for me. She's doing fine and grew quite a lot since I got her almost a year ago, I think.

For outdoors I provide you with a picture from my brothers garden, where my man and I did some seeding with flowers of all kinds. And boy, did they succeed:) Insect life became noticeably more in those summer. Curious about next season. We will see which of the plants and flowers will come back.

Now Aloe was a good choice for an indoor plant. They are a little tougher to kill than most. These are one of the plants that survive my front garden too, which can be rather inhospitable. They have recently turned fresh and green looking again with the rain and cooler weather we've had. They were that heat worn red for about a month, previously.

The flowers are certainly looking lovely. They're thriving nicely. I'm envious!

Good to know. I hope that the plant will stay that way, she looks also fresh and green. Here it is winter time and no plants survive the cold saison outdoors. It's kind of sad to wait all the months until spring gives the chance for a new start. I hope to have a garden on my own, one day. So I am envious of yours :) Have you ever tried to grew indoor herbs?

I haven't tried growing herbs indoors. I leave them to nature to look after outdoors, usually. She's a better gardener than I.😆

:) What nature does if you let it, can be quite fascinating. There is a fine line between intervening and letting things be, is what I experienced so far.
