Howdy everyone, it's that time again where it's coming out of the middle of winter here in Adelaide

My previous glogs are famous for not being updated! Hopefully this time I'll keep posting the progress.

 

Things got a whole lot more exciting this year with the sale of my apartment. We're renting a place for a year while we save up the rest of our deposit for our own house. That means I get to transform the garden at this rental place into something really good!

 

This year we have:

  • Jalapenos - Unlike last year when I bought a Jalapeno that turned out to be NOT a Jalapeno!
  • Malawi Birds Eye
  • Regular boring capsicum bell peppers (booooooo)
  • Tomatoes
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Eggplants (Aubergines for you weirdos in other countries)
  • Lebanese Cucumbers
  • Persian Basil
  • Strawberries

Pictures to come!

I planted everything on Wednesday 14th August

Cucumbers were first to pop! Saw them for the first time yesterday on the 17th. Basil has also popped. So has the Cherry Tomatoes, regular tomatoes and I can see the eggplants starting to appear already

 

The planter I keep them in is really good, glad I made it this year. During the day it keeps it almost exactly 30 degrees Celsius. At night it gets down to around 15 Celsius in the box which I measured just before the lights came on when I was on night shift.

 

The peppers in their true form have not popped it. I think 4 days would be a little unreal, I was surprised to see cucumbers and tomatoes so quickly though. Hopefully this next sunday I'll have them

The Jalapenos and bell peppers have popped! They were planted on Wednesday 14th, so seeing them today on the 19th is a nice surprise! 5 days! That has to be a germination record for me. That box does wonders! I'll take pictures when I get back from work tomorrow

From left to right:

Birds eyes starting to pop, three of them there

Persian basil seems to be doing well, hope they get a bit bigger though lol

The strawberries are hard to see, they are there though! 

Tomatoes are doing very well, first real leaves coming through now

Jalapenos have popped

Cherry tomatoes are absolutely lit, I think every seed germinated

Cucumbers are doing good also

Capsicums are now all up

And a few more eggplant have appeared
