Starting



Seeds have been sown. That's the easy part, really.

Sub tropical, all:

Nasturtium, purple pole beans, scarlet runner beans (saved from last year)
Cardinal vine, lablab beans, Malabar spinach (ditto)

Mostly things that go UP. For the birch screen.


A slow spring, but not unexpected. Hey, do you see the hot pink spot, bottom right? That is the Malabar spinach after soaking for a few hours. Fantastic colour.

Plant shopping is a challenge, locally, and there is mose def a niche for someone who wants to open a shop with interesting, well chosen plants for city spaces. Along the lines of GRDN Brooklyn. Except at night I'd turn it into a bar with botanically themed drinks and snacks.

And no, I'm not going to do it.

But I would be your best customer.
