Chives have sprouted

Today I noticed that my chives have finally sprouted! Yay!

Quick update: Marigolds and organic bugspray

Just a quick update. Yesterday after a fun day kloofing at Rivier sonder end (more info), I got home and noticed that my recently sown Marigolds have germinated. Still waiting for the chives to get going though.

Also a follow up on old Ludewig’s organic garlicy insecticide spray. It seems to be working. The following morning I still noticed some evil looking white thingies walking around, but yesterday and today there does not seem to be anything. Will still re-apply tomorrow or the day after though.

It lives! Rocket Rises

Quick update: Watering my garden this morning I noticed my rocket seeds have sprouted! This seems to be a bit ahead of schedule, but you don’t se me complaining :) This is the rocket I planted in the 2l self-watering icecream containers on the 18th.
