Garden: Transformation (I)

Heya beautiful people! I know it’s been more than a month I’ve absent from my blog, I was doing various things, but now I’m here and I promise to write more within these days! šŸ˜€Ā 

So, I’d like to show you how my garden is transformed after a month, well it is quite slow the growth, if I may said it, since we had 2 weeks full of no sunlights, all grey clouds, hail rains, cold weather so I guess these guys are doing just fine! šŸ˜€




After a month, 2 weeks of cold weather, it’s not that bad, right? šŸ˜€


We got visited by these ladies, lots of them, makes me feel so happy! Because they’re cute!! šŸ˜€


These are tomato plants that we found on the soil where we planted tomatoes last year, as you see we “saved” it in 15 small pots – as gifts to my husband’s father, who also loves gardening. Yet, it not finished yet, since I have “saved” another 25 small pots. Since these are the 2nd generation of tomato plants, then the fruit this year will be much better than the last year. So I guess I’m going to be an organic farmer soon! šŸ˜€


The watermelon started a bit slowly this year, usually for gardening in the mountain side, we need at least from June to plant these plants who love heat, and yield the result around September-October each year, but will see what happened with the weather!


Despite those “saved” tomato plants which I didn’t realize it until recently, I have also another 7 of tomato plants, so I will have spend most of my time making aurelia’s homemade tomato sauce and become an organic farmer! šŸ˜€


I’m so excited that finally Lemon tree is blossoming and fruiting! šŸ˜€ Happy! Yay!


Even the stone wall is also blossoming with this wild flower! So cute!


Cucumber is having a rough time with all of these 2 weeks sudden cold weather periods, it should have been climbing at this time, but it didn’t do anything yet.


This is my first time seeing Oregano plant blossoms with small white and beautiful flowers šŸ˜€


Lemon Verbena grows strongly this time, I already harvest a big bunch of it, washed clean, hang dried, store them and even made tea with it! My husband is loving it *good sign* šŸ™‚


Strawberries! So cute, but I need to take care more of it, and I will change its basket within these days, I need a smaller opening hanging basket for the fruits to hang and free from ants.


Anybody knows what kind of bugs they are? Very strange, it’s the first time I saw it in my garden and couldn’t escape from the lens šŸ™‚


Lettuce! The only vegetable in the garden that grows insanely! We can’t catch up with them, no matter how many times I picked the leaves for salad everyday! Insane lettuce! šŸ˜›


Tasty Lemon Balm – soon to be a nice cold beverage in the middle of hot Summer day!


Hm, I guess I mentioned about Stevia before, ya?! It’s natural sweetener and scheduled to be ready to harvest around September-November. I promise to write more about it soon!


Yihaaa! Blossoming! Been a long time I’m waiting for this. I planted Lavender last year June, when I moved to this house, and since then the growth was amazingly slow, but I can understand that due to early cold season and frost. Yesterday I woke up and went to the garden to have hot coffee, I was so surprised to see 3 blossoms! Yeah..still 3, but I’m very happy! šŸ˜€

All of the plants did not receive any chemicals substance. We are using organic compost/homemade compost from dried leaves or our food leftover and manure. I used mostly Epsom salt diluted in water for plant’s supply of magnesium & sulfur, dried garlic flakes for repellents and selected flowers to repel insects/bugs (calendula/marigold).

So that’s the transformation that made me happy! And soon, in a month, June 12th or 15th, I will post another transformation! šŸ˜€ Ah not to mention that actually there are quite a lot of plants that I didn’t photographed before, but the next transformation I will try to capture everything! šŸ™‚

Hopefully I inspired you to start planting – it doesn’t mean that you need to have plots – it does mean that pots are just fine šŸ™‚

Happy Gardening! šŸ˜€
