First and foremost, please excuse the ugly and messy state that my patio is currently in. We had a huge downpour of rain today and it has left some serious dirt, leaves, and the like spewed on our patio.
Secondly, I wanted to share a few items that I've planted over the past couple months, most of which have been from my kitchen scraps.
Here's a cute little potato that I had found sprouted in my produce bowl. I cut off a section of the potato and planted it about 1.5 months ago. Now there is a lovely little leafy thing going on.
Next up we have an onion (also found sprouted in the produce bowl) and a pineapple top. The onion appears to have gotten beaten down by the rain. I'm hoping that it doesn't die...yikes.
But my favorite kitchen scrap plant by far is the pineapple. I mean, who knew you could even plant one?! Well, apparently a lot of people on the world wide web, but not me! You just cut off the top with about 1-2 inches of the pineapple still on, then plant. That's it! I will eventually have to replant in a larger pot as they supposedly get rather gigantic. And eventually it will even produce another pineapple!
Today I started an avocado pit in my kitchen which I hope someday I have space to plant the tree. And next I want to try to plant a sweet potato - I hear they grow a lovely ivy.
Hope you've enjoyed your weekend!
