More Blooms

It’s been a busy week. I’m bushed. I just woke up and I’m ready for bed. So, just some photos of stopping to smell the roses, so to say.

My citronella outside is loving the sun! 

I guess I haven’t kept up on my Count Dracula. I picked all the peppers so she could focus on flowering. The troubles of keeping an annual perennially. 

 

You know, I have to say that in an urban setting, onions have to be the easiest and most practical thing to grow. So many dishes include them. We got a walking onion a few years ago, and we’ve kept it going. It’s also flowering, but guess what?

The flowers are edible before they seed! Well, except for walking onions, which grow new onion bulbs instead!

They are so delicious, and all you have to do is grab a chunk and rip it off. No peeling or chopping. The taste complements breakfast perfectly. If you care about what you eat but aren’t a green thumb, I highly recommend growing onions! You literally cannot kill them by over watering, and they are perfectly happy in a 1L pot their whole life cycle. They over winter very well, and that’s when the bulb onions do most of their layering.

I’ve been talking about aquaponics for so long now, I decided to tip toe into that realm now. Luke the fish now has some flora to enjoy too.
