No, those blueberries aren't from my yard. Maybe some day though. I really want to grow fruit.

Did you miss my post on the masonry ladders?

Bestest Cheapest DIY Trellis

The masonry ladders run circles around hoops.

The Snow Flakes, Leucojum aestivum, are in full bloom now .. a whole month early!



My African Violet, Epsom Magic bloomed again! They are all doing great behind the white blinds in a South facing window - they love the extremely bright light.



And still the weather is freaky - we'll be in the 70's by the end of the week! I hope the weather guys are right about the rain because we really do need it!

Xeolyte, I remember that trellis idea and found that the masonry ladders also come in a wider width if so desired. I spray painted mine with rust resistant paint and anchored them into steel poles which made them removable at the end of the growing season. Your post was a great find for me at a time when I needed it.

Tomorrow is the big day! I'll be starting the first wave of seeds .. this wave will be ones that require a long germination time - weeks and months and also plants that have a long maturation time. Hopefully this drawer full of seeds will be gone by March.



My Aquatic Morning Glory has a seed pod that's been slowly growing over the last month or so .. it's totally white and seems to have quit getting bigger so hopefully it will ripen. Since I ended up using up all my Aquatic MG seeds to get this plant, this seed pod is very dear!



My NOID Bougainvillea is still blooming it's head off ! Wish I could get a cultivar name on this .. but after 2 years of trying I give up.



My Double Orange Hibiscus gifted me with a bloom!



And the Shrimp Plant is in full bloom now. I've been hand pollinating it so hopefully I'll get a seed pod. This is the first one I've grown so I don't even know if it's self fertile.

Looks like you have a little extra room on the shelves in there.
Aww! Ooo! Pretty! Mmmm! I can smell the fragrance.

Oh can't wait to see all those seeds growing.

What an interesting plant your aquatic Morning glory. I have never heard of such a plant and thought that all morning glories just grew in dirt. You certainly have a lot of unique plants. Thanks for sharing.

Ipomoea aquatica. Here is a picture of the flower.



It's a food source in Asian countries .. kind of like spinach.

Got the first wave of seeds going. Those needing cold in the fridge because the weather is not cooperating .. spose to be in the 70's all week. I have the Bomarea seeds soaking in some GA3 - growth hormone - will be planted in soil probably on Wednesday and the rest on heat in front of a window. Here is what I started today:

Bells Of Ireland
Bomarea
Chilean Bell Vine
Chilean Jasmine
Geranium - Pink Lace
Geranium - Raspberry Ripple
Mariposa Lily
Pasque Flower
Trumpet Creeper - Morning Calm

They sound pretty. I keep all my seeds in the refrigerator and some in the freezer. I still have seeds in the freezer from 2003. Wonder if some would still grow.
