Some of the Lychee seedlings grown from seeds I saved from our previous fruit

Lychee seedlings apparently need 8-12 years before they begin fruiting. That's quite the long-term project :shocked:

I have tried to grow its cousin rambutan from seed, which is not difficult at all. But rambutan from seed is a long-term project as well. I somewhat gave up on the project when I found grafted trees locally for M$100-200 (U$5-10).

As the old saying goes:
Q:When is the best time to plant a tree to enjoy?
A:20 years ago.
Q:When is the next best time?
A:NOW

Cabbages look mega healthy and there's never a good time to grow but now my grandad used to say, so stop making excuses grow it because one day it may be all you have to eat.

Went on a little road trip this morning. And, just when I thought I was running out of new things to grow here............I found out there was a Macadamia orchard about an hour from me. They had just started harvesting this seasons nuts about a week ago so I bought a bag each of cracked and uncracked nuts. They don't get any fresher than this.

As long as I was there...........and they were selling air layered trees and also seedlings, I had to purchase them also! I got two of the air layered trees and 3 of the smaller seedlings.

And I just planted six seeds in 1 gallon pots, it may be interesting.

Macadamias are gorgeous so jealous buddy and now you will have your own love them in Milk chocolate.😋

I'm finding that they taste great right out of the shell, no salt or flavorings needed. But, I'm sure they would be very good in any chocolate item like fudge, brownies, and milk or dark chocolate.

Bean update. Out of the whole package of 2014 Lima Bean seeds I planted, seven germinated.

The Kentucky Blue pole beans were the most prolific with nearly 100% germination. I'll have to feed and water these heavily.

The Seychelles pole beans had about a 50% germination but are now growing well with a couple of vines about 3 feet up the cage already.

Some of my Miracle Fruit plants. These things grow fairly slowly. Some of these are a year old or more.

I'll end this post with a pic of one of the Angel Trumpet trees. It's from the Nightshade family, do not eat the flowers.
