Design Wall – July 27, 2015

I did think more about sewing this week and almost turned on the machine yesterday so . . maybe this week I’ll sew a bit.

What’s on your design wall? Anyone working on Christmas gifts? The holidays will be here before we know it!

Lychee Seeds

The lychee seeds I’d saved have sprouted.

Yesterday was planting day.

Now . . I wait to see if they sprout through the dirt, and then if I can keep them alive in the greenhouse through the winter. Assuming they grow and survive, I doubt I’ll have any fruit til at least 2017 but . . if I didn’t plant them, I’d never have any fruit.

Speaking of weird plantings, the turmeric roots I sprouted and planted are growing like crazy.

The ginger, also sprouted from storebought ginger root, is growing too.

I doodle around in the dirt and check the roots and so far, it looks like it will be a while before I’m harvesting any ginger or turmeric root but, again, if I’d never planted them, I’d never get any so I’ll try to be patient!
