Re: Gardeners in the O2 Community

Hi Marjo,

Don't think you can get away with not having a plant! Even though you have little tigers there.

Buy a brass hook ~ get a step ladder ~ test for a joist and hang from ceiling in a Hanging basket.

Yes I suppose you need to water it though ~  or

I used to put small decorative pots into a white rope style hanger with look-a-like plant in.

Hanging baskets sounds like a good idea @TallTrees! I might give that a go. Maybe not in my current flat anymore as I'm moving soon anyway, but in the next one. I like colours so I'm already thinking of some colourful baskets to hang from the ceiling. Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

 

OH yes @Cleoriff you're right, I forgot I had posted a picture. Can't find it now though. It was a lovely plant while it lasted... for a couple of weeks tops. Smiley Very Happy I remember Drake was chewing on the leaves (annoying but tolerable, was non-poisonous of course). Arthur started to swat the leaves... ok still tolerable. But it was not fine anymore when they both started to dig into the dirt (mostly Arthur), spreading it everywhere. Then the uprooting started (Arthur of course) and I came home to plant parts and dirt everywhere, the pot (which was not even a small one!) upside-down and cats looking like "What are you looking at, I haven't done anything".

LOL I kept the pot as a cat toy holder and sometimes find it's made its way downstairs "on its own" when I come home from work with all the toys spread across the stairs. Smiley Tongue

Hanging baskets are very pretty.  Inside and outside.

Liked to nip out and take the lids off the milk bottles (days gone by that is)

Re: Gardeners in the O2 Community

Hi Martin-O2 

Please let me know. They may be ok as red/green/yellow capsicum peppers are frozen to use ~

but don't have much body after cooking ~

chillies are tougher so may freeze better.

I prefer to use fresh chillies but can't do this all the time.

I freeze Corriander leaves as they do not last long even in jar of water.

They freeze quite well ~ I put in freeze bag and then use scissors to

cut off leaves which are fine when used in curries.  They are also nice

in pasta sauce. They do look a bit clumped up!  naturally anguished

However can't be going out to by fresh coriander all the time.

ByeWave TallTrees

Re: Gardeners in the O2 Community

I'll let you know @TallTrees! I'm harvesting the remaining fruits this weekend so I'll do a test freeze on a few to see how it goes. laughing

@TallTrees

 

I'm more black fingered than green fingered I have to say.

 

I either under or over water anything I try to grow and that includes Cacti and Sunflowers so I don't do it now!
