Florida Garden Update 1/3/15


My garden is actually doing O.K. and I haven’t been doing a lot this winter.  I have been better at planting celery ends and watering them faithfully.  If I don’t they die quickly.  I also have now planted 3 onion ends and several potatoes that sprouted.  This is a great way to save money and have veggies.

My small self watering container was getting very wet so I decided to dig out the ginger, replant a couple of pieces into the self watering 5 gallon, round, food grade buckets and save the rest.


It’s hard to believe that my raspberries are still producing and I my stalk of bananas seem to be surviving, even though the birds have discovered them.

My mulberry even decided to produced a couple of mulberries.  They were a bit sour though.
