My "Something Independence" is a little different this month ......
I love a pretty garden, and I love growing veggies ...... however, I don't have a green thumb, although I have got a little better over the years :-)
On one of my many wonders through Pinterest, I noticed a few pins, on growing green onions from the bulbs you buy in the grocery store. A friend of mine, also showed me her sweet potato vine, that she'd grown from a sweet potato ..... I decided to read up a little more, and then give them both a try.
Little chopped green onion stubs, placed in a pot of soil (about 2 weeks ago).
My sweet potato balancing in a little pot of water (about 3 weeks ago).
Well .... Surprise, surprise ..... and an exciting one too ......
Yesterday, I snipped some of my green onion to have in my grilled cheese sandwich at lunchtime .....
I swear it tastes better, because it came from my garden :-)
And this morning, Mr sweet potato got a permanent home ....
I'm amazed at how well this worked .... it has tons of little white roots at the bottom of the potato.
In it's new home ..... I love the look of sweet potato vines, as a garden plant.
I have done some more reading up on them, and I'm going to propagate vines to plant in the Spring, so that we can hopefully grow a sweet potato harvest next year.
This has given me the courage to try and grow garlic this winter too. I've researched it ..... I've marked the date on my calendar that I'll need to plant my cloves (October 15th for this area !!!) ... and hopefully, fingers crossed, I wont need to buy garlic next year :-)
I do have a more craft related project planned too, for this month ...... if I can get to it before the month is over !!!! Summer is flying by at warp speed, and while I hate the heat we endure here in Texas, I love having my kiddos home .... Summer, you need to slow down a little !!!!!
