Look how big they’ve grown! I’ve started to use the compost that just got mature and they are working oh so well, nothing beats treating your soil well and giving your plants what they deserve.

I started planting rosemary from some trimmings I bought from cold storage but after planting it in the potting mix I forgot to water it, if it continue to look like this I’m going to have to name it droopy. Heh!

Have also started using the Hydro kit to plant some chili seeds and brew compost tea at the same time. I guess the lady bell and the mustard really liked it! Look at how they have grown! 😀 a friend of mine name the pepper plant ‘Hulk’.

i’m currently growing some bell pepper plants and a small chili plant is starting to sprout at the side of the bed. i used some alfafa pellets as mulch and nitrogen, ground egg shells for calcium, epsom salt for magnesium and also a little bit of coffee grounds. hopefully it will start flowering in a couple of weeks! 🙂

On the bottom I have some black mustard sprouting! let see how it’s doing in a couple of days.

note: most pepper plants likes more alkaline growing medium and mustard likes more acidic. if slugs or snails start appearing in your soil or plants, it’s a indication that your soil is lacking calcium. they are there to help produce calcium by slimming around but they need to survive too, so they chomp! 😉
