I have been making garden update blogs here on the ecology blog for
over a month now.
And I have been lamenting about how MY OVERWATERING of the pots is
causing the roots to rot and the spinach plants to die.
well,guess what,
upon my fifth attempt and carefully planting new taproots of spinach
with little leaf stubs in multiple pots and carefully UNDERwatering
them,I am now the PROUD mother of six spinach plants...
funny how i call myself their mother when infact they are my
mother.They are gonna feed me super nutritious leaves very

Garden update-Sweet potato vines

Well,if there is one thing that grows without much care in my
mini-apartment garden,it is sweetpotato vines.
Yes,the sweetpotato plant grows out in a vine--atleast some varieties.
Yes,the leaves are edible-raw and cooked..
yes,the plants are just PLAIN BEAUTIFUL-with their ivy shaped reddish
green lush leaves.
The thing is,when I buy sweetpotato,I don't manage to use them right
away,so they sit on the kitchen shelves for days and some of them give
out red shoots.
so,I end up cutting out those sweetpotato bits that have given out
shoots and plant them.
within days, I end up with lush greens
One reason why the sweetpotato plant survives in my mini-garden is coz
the plant is known to survive even if planted in just nutrient
water(no real soil,whatsoever)...
That is right,IT CAN SURVIVE in water logged conditions.
So,while I am KILLING MY SPINACH with OVERWATERING my pots and
waterlogging the soil,THE SAME,seems to HELP the sweetpotato vines to
Right now,THE ONLY PLANTS IN FULL FLOURISH in my mini-garden are the
sweetpotato vines..
so,yeah..have I eaten them?yeah,kinda.
.THEY ARE SHARP tasting when raw..good for salads for them,eat them.

GARDEN UPDATE-The spinach-part4?

The spinach plants are dead.
After just the day when i thought I have finally managed to grown them in a pot
Well,my fourth attempt this was.
I waited and DIDN'T OVERWATER them..and waited and waited ,till baby
leaves started appearing.
And a day too early,I DECIDED that i SUCCEEDED...So,I cut away the
shriveled larger leaves that were there when I planted the
taproot..and then,IN A FIT OF HAPPY EXHILARATION,I possibly
OVERWATERED my stubs with the baby leaves.
two days later,THE PLANTS DIED ON ME..
thanqvery much
bows to Crowds
Stifles a tear
trying once more
this time,maybe with seeds.
btw,,In other good news..
i managed to grow RED AMARANTH using this,yeah,all is
NOT LOST in my mini-garden.
