Tuesday treats

Today is all about my favourite garden-centric blogs.

The patient gardener
She talks about her garden here and she has this delightful section called the ‘Table of delights’ where she talks about the plants she has on a table in her patio.

– The Dirt, this is the blog of ASLA (American society of Landscape Architects) they basically cover news on landscape architecture and the built environment.

– Then this too, Words and herbs, a blog by Cathy ‘For all who appreciate the beauty of words, flowers and homecooking’

Over the weekend my cucumbers that I have been carefully nurturing upped and died on me, noticed there were too many pests feeding on them plus I’m also sure the alkaline level of the soil was too much for it, off to do more research on how to fix that and tackle the pest issue.
On to good things today.

– An interview with the founder of Serenbe, A farm to table community,  won’t you want to live here?

– This article talking about how to help local producers using sustainable practices to grow their food scale up.

– My girl C, talking about how to grow your own.

What a time to be alive.

  • Lately I have been down in the dumps and I wondered if there was a correlation with gardening and depression and I found this great article that talks about it.
  • This very detailed analysis of different categories of plants, that I’m trying to tailor my plants database page after. Well only a school will do that anyway.
  • This step by step process on starting your own garden, it’s a long read but well worth it if you want to start gardening.

What better way to kick-start, than using the city I love the most:

  •  Singapore: This is my dream city,  what really drew me to Singapore is the fact that in as much as they are this world power that is usually characterized by concrete jungles, we actually have real jungles right in the city centres. They are doing so much to actually preserve their natural vegetation and creating more green areas within the developed areas, case in point The Super tree at the centre of the Gardens on the bay:

  • This easy how to build elevated garden for people that want to garden in our Lagos concrete jungle.

I’ve been gone so long it feels like I’m starting afresh. I’m planning to take things more seriously this time because I may want to make this a more permanent  in my life soon. I’m promising consistency and more blogging topics,  more pictures, more, more, more.
Over the course of next week I will be rolling out more articles so stay tuned (lol)

Till then…lettuce eat cucumbers.

Love and everything lush
