Lol I'll keep it going. Radishes?
Looks like arugula
Join us at /sub/hotpeppers !
Yeah I thought that was funny. It even has 3 flower buds on it. I should probably pinch them off and focus on leaf growth, but I’m just too excited!
Wow, 50 Plants! That’s amazing. I would absolutely love that. I have a good amount of seeds, but I can never get them started. I garden because of my depression, but then I tend to accidentally forget to water stuff. Whoopsies.
I don’t usually have a hard time getting them to germinate, it’s just making sure they stay hydrated that’s the problem. I accidentally forget to water them sometimes, and then the delicate seedlings die.
One time, with my makeshift ideas (I’m a broke highschool kid) I started some seeds (some other veggies) in moist paper towel (in ziplock bags) and placed them on my heating blanket. It worked!
I was just reading about how the hotter ones take longer to germinate. All this pepper talk got me wondering, so I searched my seed hoard and most of the peppers I have are hot ones. (Scotch bonnet, ghost pepper, Numex twilight, and some unknown variety.)
My newest babies!

Looks like an easy swarm to catch ...
So cool! Cherish them.
But not too much.
so fucking cute
I like the simplicity of it. Well executed.
I zoomed in, now I finally know why it’s called cross stitching
Kitty’s got a green paw
He’s gorgeous! My baby boy is like yours: he loves helping me garden but he never messes with the plants. He loves to lay among them but he’s always a good boy about it. Isn’t it great when cats aren’t total assholes all time?
My cat has weird lips like your cat but is a pest in the garden!
All my plants have teeth holes in them, so yes, haha
I have no idea. Lol. He’s a mad scientist. He has a citrus tree with two types of oranges, limes, and lemons on it.
So dope! How do you actually do this?
No they are grafted together.
“Grafting a citrus tree joins two or more varieties to create a single, more favorable tree. Home gardeners often graft trees to reinvigorate production of an old tree or add a better-tasting citrus variety to existing rootstock. Grafting a citrus tree involves inserting a shoot from the desired tree into a branch of the existing one. Depending on the temperature, grafts heal in just three to eight weeks and begin to produce fruit within one to three years.”
I bet his dad could graft you onto the family tree.
Spelt it samalander. cannot unspell. (vis a vis butterfly)
Don't worry, I'm rather experienced in handling amphibians. Not toention, it was hanging out under a planter I was moving, so I had to relocate it to a better spot anyways.
It's a long toed salamander by the way, you can't see the yellow lines on its back/head from the angle of this picture
Cool! Looks like an Arboreal Salamander. If you're on the US west coast, that's verly likely what you have here.
I don't want to sound like a wet blanket, but if you see any kind of amphibian, do NOT pick it up. They breathe through their skin, so it is extremely fragile and even handling it a little bit can tear the skin or the oils on your hands can cause it to suffocate. Salamanders and newts are very important to their ecosystems as indicators of the overall health of the area. Most are endangered. We don't want to accidentally kill one just by touching it.
I wouldn't be able to walk by without touching it! I bet it smells amazing. They aren't winter hardy here.
It is a very good re-seeder and Rosemary likes a little pruning.
Oh I always touch them when they're on the planting strip like this. The planting strip is public property that the adjacent property owner maintains so I don't consider it rude to touch, though I wouldn't pick any. It does smell amazing!
I'd go knock on the door and ask. Hi, I'm Heather from around the corner. I see your beautiful rosemary is flowering; would you mind if I cut a couple of seed stalks?
I'm in a rural area, so maybe we are more generous with bulbs and seeds and splittings. We appreciate it when you take an interest and some of the excess off our hands.
It's a new gene! The double helix carrot!
I think these carrots were actually wrestling, trying to snuff each other out
That is awesome! Thanks for sharing. I thought the title was love your neighbor because they shared their carrots with you, lol!
Srsly, that is AWESOME
Plot twist: OP's wife is 2'3".
Maybe next time she'll grow some daughterflowers
I am not sure what's brighter the sunflower or her smile. Congratulations on your flowers and baby.
You planted the seed, Original Poster. LOL!
