Hey folks, one word:

School. Anyways….

My two best papayas, I’ve really pampered them.

My mango seed is sprouting, finally. It looked dead but it has a nice root and tiny sprout.

An Avo seedling, sprouted from a seed from our tree.

Lychee seed germinating!

My pepino melons are doing great. Is it a bad idea to transplant it to a bigger pot while it has fruit on it?

My Stevia Rebaudiana plant. I have two, and they’re just fantastic.

Sorry about the delay, I’ve finally willed myself to post!

A lot of things have been happening. I’ve received a ton of cuttings, sprouted a few papaya, got a ton of new things.

Hawaiin Papaya has germinated. It’s doing really well, I’ve got it in coco-mix and humisoil.

Here’s a large tray of Papaya, Passion Fruit, Date, Rambutan, and Lychee seeds.

My mom’s friend Jack was nice enough to give me some plumeria cuttings. Fun!

I just bought a thompson’s seedless grape today. We’re making an arbor for it soon.

Stevia Jungle! Jealous Matt? 😀

I just bought a pepino melon plant as well. I’ll have delicious pepinos soon!

Our strawberries have stopped producing and are focusing on heavy runner production. Next year..

My greenhouse is FULL of fussy Datura, begonia, impatien, and tropical cuttings right now, thanks to Jack.

I hope they root!

We pulled our Sugar snaps after the powdery mildew became too fierce. Pole beans are now in.

Melons, Sugar Baby and Crimson Sweet.


And last, but not least…


I’ll be writing a review soon on it’s performance. I really like the idea of such simple hydroponics.

‘Til next time!

I’ve been busy writing a pretty extensive recap of the expo. In the meantime, I bought a few things at the county fair.

First of all, something I’ve been looking forward to… Plumeria! I currently do not know what variety, but I’m thinking I got aztec gold and petiite rainbow.

I also got two kinds of lilies..

Gloriosa lily, which is a climber, and starfire lily, which makes a big poofy flower.

My mom was having a particularly bad day, so me and my dad harvested some veggies for her.

There were a few firsts here. First bell pepper, Bok Choi, and first nectarines.
