Additions to my Terrace Garden (1)

09-19-2010 01:15 PM by sharad | 10 comments »

Mid June to mid September is the rainy season and is the best time to add new plants. I have used this period to enrich my terrace garden with many new additions and will blog them in parts.

It is an essential ingredient of chilli sauce and is used in many Mexican dishes. Here in India it is used for making Bhajias ...

August 14/10 most of today was spent in the kitchen. At the end of the day I have: 7 quarts of sweet pickles 5 quarts of stewed tomatoes 5 trays of dehydrated cherry tomatoes (my 3rd dehydrator full of produce) With tons of tomatoes still ripening, I’m in the process of finding out which preserving technique is best for which type of tomato. Cherry tomatoes: work great in the dehydrator. I just quarter them, leaving a smidgen of skin holding the sections together. This ...

I traded one of my red hibiscus with a friend for this pretty pink one.I have a feeling it is a tropical and has to be brought in for the winter but I’m kinda hoping it’s a hardy perennial that I can just plant in the garden.I need some help from our experts to ID this plant please.I tried to get pics from all angles and the stems and leaves. The friend I got it from knows nothing about it. <div></div>

Blue Language

08-12-2010 11:18 PM by Roostermiester | 4 comments »

I was out taking some pics of the garden the other day and thought I’d post a couple blossom shots. The pumpkins only open in the morning.

Well its not been the quiet Summer I had planned for, but it never is. Had to get a new computer then some other things happened, anyway hoping for a quiet Autumn.

Homemade Bird Feeder: Still works like a charm but the birds are not having much interest in the food anymore. ??Container Gardens: Still beautiful, dying off for the change in weather though, they say its going to be outrageous hot ...
