Have you tried to grow avocado from seed that you bought to eat? And it never grew. I was in the same boat. This time I planted in summer in a pot and forgot abt it. It took forever but finally it did come up. It takes more than a month for it to sprout and then to see some green leaves seems to take few months. I was gonna use pot for something else when nothing appeared but then I dug seed and saw it had sprouted so I buried it again. And it did grow.
If you like to have house plants, then this will cost nothing . And it’s fun experiment.
So keep patience and forget abt it after planting. Also try in Summer , Spring and keep planting all avocado seeds after eating .
Now in this age of Insta pot and so many cooking gadgets , meals are easy to prepare, isn’t it ? Sweet potatoes with spices taste good and you can eat it as a side dish just like that too. Recipe is from vahrevah. Here’s the link:
When you don’t know what to make for dinner , I like to boil , steam something even if it doesn’t feel appealing. Because when you get hungry and there’s nothing else you can make , it will be handy. So steam the sweet potatoes in your insta pot just enough so you can chop it on 1 of those days.
- Heat coconut oil, crack some mustard seeds. Add urad dal , torn red chili, curry leaves, turmeric and red chili powder.
- Now using mortal pastel crush cumin seeds and then garlic. Make this before heating oil and add this mixture in oil.
- Mix well, add chopped sweet potatoes, salt and mix.
- Garnish with cilantro if you like.
Isn’t it pretty? I thought it was dahlia but it’s Zinnias. I found more flower seeds and now am thinking they were 4 pack for dollar. It’s a deal and you will have so many plants .
Updating with new picture. It got brighter and prettier.
Dollar tree had flower seeds 2packs for a dollar in fall and so I had bought them. Wanted to try out flowers from seeds. Other pack I bought was Dahlia. And both of them grew nicely and they are quick. I had emptied both pack in 2 pots and lots of plants came out.
Merigold I transferred to a big pot and Dahlia into ground. They are doing good and I see buds on them too.
Try out if you have never grown flowers from seed. They seem to be very easy.
Gardening is so much fun. If you don’t have a yard , you can still grow in container . From planting seeds to sprouting to see plant growing . Whole process is such a joy. Sometimes you get to eat fruit and sometimes you don’t . I grew radish for the first time this spring and reason I wanted to grow besides I do like them, that they grow quick and you can harvest Radish within a month.
Well, well, well…it’s been probably 7-8 weeks since I planted them and today I pulled few . They are tiny but they pack a punch. Leaves are edible too so I threw them in the dal.
Have you heard ” you reap what you sow “. In garden , we grow what we like, don’t we ? I am not gonna grow something I don’t like . Well less chance. Just like that, in life also plant what you would like to reap. Sometimes it may take longer but you will reap eventually what you like. That’s a law of karma.
