Made a couple more #floral #decoupaged #ArtRocks & placed them at the base of one of my #ficus #ginseng #plants. There are 2 miniature glass #Mastodon figurines in the pot too.

I have 4 ficus ginseng aka #Chinese #banyan plants. I propagated 3 extra plants from one strong mother plant. I bring them inside for Fall-Winter. They stay outdoors from May-October - depending on weather/temperature.

Our local and free is the best thing our local community has done for .

We can give the extra plants that love to volunteer in the and exchange a few , , plants, or garden tools that people want to share.

Here is the link to the FB group if you want to find some inspiration and start some for your community. It is my last reason to still use FB.

I sure wish had groups like this one.

@compost Don't do FB but love gardeners. Good on ya!

@compost I will NEVER use Facebook. But perhaps you could start a Fediverse-wide Free Library for gardeners?

@msquebanh my parents have an amazing Quince tree that produces gigantic fruit. I need to convince my wife.... 😆

msquebanh, avatar

@chris You can make so much different foods & alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks with them too. I hope your wife says, Yes - to quince tree.

In Winter, we just move pots into unheated greenhouse & they keep on providing us food. Same with a few other salad greens.

@kellyromanych They're tasty greens!

Happy . Here's my illustration of Williamsoniella coronata, a bisexual bennettitalean cone from the Middle of Yorkshire, England. This plant had a cone with both male (bright yellow outer) and female (inner cone) sections.

Switching to - showing y'all this wonderful volunteer plant that decided to grow out of rocks in our front yard! What a lovely surprise 😊

@somcak Some lettuces are easier than others. Buttercrunch lettuces & regular romaine are easier than other varieties. They bolt fast in high heat so it's good to keep harvesting to slow down bolting if you're in high heat zones.

Back in our gardens.

#SoapBush - #Ceanothus - Great for #PollinatorGarden.

It's proven to be #DroughtResistant, once established. One of very few #plants proven to be resistant to air pollution too. I highly recommend this for #ClimateAction #gardening. It's a gorgeous plant too.

@msquebanh sounds delicious. I will be over the moon if we manage to get a handful of small Apples from our young trees. Patience will pay off. :)

michaelrussell, avatar

@msquebanh Much bigger than my apples here in the Fraser Valley at this point. Do you have any issues with Apple Maggots there? I have to bag each apple in a nylon stocking when I thin them. The ones I miss are completely riddled with worm holes/trails by harvest time.

A typhoon is approaching.
Red propellers withstand the wind.

Strong branches will break, but the soft and something flexible will overcome adversity.

A hopeful story from botany, about rosy saxifrage: "A plant that went extinct in the wild has been re-introduced to the UK mainland. We can’t tell you the exact location - it’s a secret, to keep it safe."

The chillies and I watching the rain.

Luckily, after a few hours in the sun, I was able to get the plants inside just before the rain started.


ai6yr, (edited ) avatar

Hmm, I should know what this weed is, temporarily adding it to my list. (Update: this is almost certainly Pseudognaphalium californicum -- California Rabbit-Tobacco)

kellyromanych, avatar

@ai6yr looks like California everlasting, Pseudognaphalium californicum

BegoniaArizona, avatar

@ai6yr possibly Pearly Everlasting aka anaphalis margaritacea

RonjaBiernat, Dutch avatar

Oh wow, the first flower. I can hardly believe it. What do I do now?

Suggestions on pollination methods for indoor chilli plants are more than welcome.


arose62, avatar

@RonjaBiernat @plants @gardening @homegrownfood @gardening

1: Grab a cotton bud/q-tip/small, soft paintbrush
2: Brush the pollen around onto the inside of the petals. Just a twirling motion inside the flowers will do. Think like a bee as you do it.
