    Homegrown Herbal Tea

    There is one trick about herbs - it's very popular here to see potted Basil, Parsley, Mint, and Chives in the supermarkets. Their price is usually about two euros. However, the plants are more than overcrowded, as the product is designed for people to use once or twice (and then directly discard...

    We received the notification that the new window we ordered in January finally arrived. So, our living room is under maintenance and upgrade today.

    Phaedra's Garden 2022

    The late afternoon is again an ideal time to work in the garden. As DH is on leave, we worked together for about one hour. I found something that can make the thin-wall metal raised bed safe, and it just cost me about four euros and ten minutes. Et voilà, it's perfect now. Then, it's time...

    What Did You Do In The Garden?

    Hi Steve, you remind me about something I might screw up this year. Yes, it's also about Dahlias. Last year was my first year to plant Dahlias seriously, and I also tried to lift most of the tubers, clean, dry, and then store them. It's like a gardening academy, and I pick one or two plants...

    Recycled Items for Gardening Purposes

    Okay, one box is a bit sad now, but the chilis insides are totally fine. I put them here because I will directly spread the soil and decomposing cardboard in this region in autumn—no need to clean up further. They grow well, but I removed the lower leaves and side shoots. The other one for...

    Let's talk about Chop-and-Drop?

    About one month, the three pumpkins and two zucchinis are so far happy about their growing environment. I keep chopping and dropping weeds and grasses to cover this area. They also started flowering. So, I decided to try the "lazy potatoes" here, too. The candidates are ready for quite a...
