RIP BASIL PLANTS

Screw you winter.

What do you do

when your neighbors trees are over grown and blocking sunlight? :/

I chose to grow Kale in the cinder-blocks, mostly because it grows like a weed. Tastiest weed on earth I say. Hopefully this kale will continue to grow, and the cinder-block container won’t prove to much of a limitation on it’s growth.

Hardly a victory garden, but things seem to be coming along nicely, considering the weather has been erratic. 

I decided this was a pretty neat way to grow indoors… not sure why. Seems to be working ok for now. The Jasmin tin has assorted Texas wildflowers and the Earl Grey has catnip!

BE BACK SOON!

This is not a method I would suggest for hot weather, the concrete would cook what ever you’re trying to grow. Now if you are going to build a bed out of cinder blocks, that wouldn’t be a problem, even in the heat. 

Also making use of clay pots… just for shiggles  

Everything is moving along pretty well. It’s getting colder, which bodes well for the kinda stuff i’m growing. It doesn’t get too cold in Houston, so it seems like the growing season is a bit longer. 

There are some major problems with this design, like for instance, not being able to change the water out. Still it’s good looking :)

container. 

I am trying out different methods and styles to see what works best. Success seems to depend drainage. If you are going to use self watering bottle planters, check the drainage before you plant. If it’s draining too slowly you can adjust the drainage by loosening the bottle cap.

I'm a new to the gardening world and this is the blog chronicling my gardens progress.
