The gardening bug

The gardening bug bit me in early April and this is what I have been trying to grow for the past few months.



coriander seeds sprouting

more coriander sprouts in early May
Chilli took a long time to show up


meanwhile, mint was growing roots
mint in pots
finally mint is transported to pot


coriander has a growth spurt


and some more


and finally there are the coriander leaves
and look who’s here… after about a month, I see chilli leaves


Coriander flourishes
and more….enough to make chutney!


and it keeps coming more everyday
mint spreads its roots and is scrambling all over inside the pot


pepper plant
some real growth of the chilli plant


this is the latest pic from a few days ago. Chilli has come a long way and soon there will be flowers!






















Mint multiplied over summer and its runners were all over the small pot so I had to transfer it to a bigger pot. Now it’s happy and contained in my balcony!
