…And then, I had a growing desire to see beautiful blooming plants in my garden. I initially started with the portulaca and coleus plants.

In the beginning, I started out with container gardening for my pumpkin, onion, scallion and melons. The palms are about in their fourth year.

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming #24: Callaloo Update

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming #24: Callaloo Update

Callaloo Update

In October, I began a set of new crops; the cucumbers, callaloo, pakchoi and okra. These proved quite a surprise because they threatened to overrun their containers and my sun room, in time. Ultimately, I found them a cool spot in my Jamaican Urban Organic Garden to chill and grow a their leisure.

The Callaloo plants have proven resilient. I was able to put them in a spot that receives half and half sun and shade. Seeing as it is one of the few vegetables I eat, I am looking forward to it flourishing.

I also managed to transplant about 20 plants and pray that the garden pests do them no damage.

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming #22: Using Ting Bottle In My Container Garden

Using Ting Bottle In My Container Garden

Plastic pollution involves the accumulation of plastic products in the environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, or humans. Plastics that act as pollutants are categorized into micro-, meso-, or macrodebris, based on size.

In America alone, Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year. However, the U.S.’s recycling rate for plastic is only 23 percent, which means 38 billion water bottles – more than $1 billion worth of plastic – are wasted each year.

Can you imagine the rest of the world?

Do your part and recycle.

One easy way to do this is to have a plastic bottle garden.

Yes, that’s a Ting plastic bottle, I recycled for a flower bed. Just cut out a portion of the side and puncture holes for drainage. Remember start your container garden and recycle plastics to help protect the environment, animals and slow down climate change.

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming #21: Separating The Plants From The Lawn

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming: Separating The Plants From The Lawn

Separating The Plants From The Lawn

Remember, I mentioned in an earlier article, that I had to remove the grass from where the plants were?

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming: Separating The Plants From The Lawn

To the corner, the grass was tall and lush, with little worms roaming about; meanwhile my flowers were looking droopy and dry.

Well, today I took it a bit further, I dug a small trench and putting a border between the garden and grass. This will deter the latter from overwhelming the former.

You can do the same by #recycling any scrapes of #wood lying about your home. The digging was made easier because of yesterday’s rain. My back…is another issue 😦

Now unto my next gardening project.

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming #20: Sawdust Path

The Sawdust Path

Nobody likes trekking mud into the house, especially if you have to go in and out ever so often to tend to your garden and water your plants. So, it occurred to me to make a sawdust path.

Seeing that I had two and a half bags left over from my procurement at ARC Manufacturing, last week. I used one bag to transform the path from a muddy mess.

Just over the border, you can see that I am still waiting on the grass to fill in.
