Hey guys!

Today I finally had some time to restart my container garden after almost everything I had died off last december! I decided to install a double layer of shade cloth to protect my seedlings and some other plants when the sun is too hot (like today...)! In the pictures you can see my Sweet Potato container with some Tagetes seedlings, a new bed and a few containers of Black and Red Beans, some tomato seedlings (Orange Cherry Tomato and San Marzano Tomato). Further away there are some chive, mint and rosemary seedlings. There is still A LOT of space and I'll keep planting other things for the next 2 or 3 weeks!

Today was a great gardening day, so I wanted to share these photos with you guys!

Cheers!

Good work mate. Now flog some native Amazonian fruit seeds and get those started too.
Now that's a good idea! I just ordered some Biribá seeds! I'll plant them as soon as they arrive. Sadly it will only start flowering and producing after its 3rd year. But it's a good investment!

Today I started an experiment! I filled a huge container I had lying around with almost 50Kg of soil and planted beets, tagetes and sweet potato!
The actual experiment was to fill it halfway with old and used soil from last year's crops than adding a layer of organic material from my kitchen and topping it 15Kg of "new" premium soil! The "old" soil had a few dozens of californian worms that I hope will multiply and thrive. [Fingers crossed!]

Had to look up Biribá, looks like some kind of custard apple as we call them in English. Awesome !

Love it! They look so healthy! No signs of damage whatsoever and they look like they are absolutely thriving. Well done! :D
