Peppers (delicious!), super-hot jalapeños, and a lovely triple onion that I will add to the Goddess altar on Samhain. All of this was grown in regular plant pots, from heirloom organic seeds from our in-laws own crops, on a roof garden where there is no planting soil at all – a proof of urban gardening that tastes like heaven! The jalapeños will make a gorgeous jar of “Mojo” (pronounced Mo-ho), which is our own tabasco-like sauce -here on the islands, due to our hot and dry weather, we have some of the hottest peppers in Europe! Very soon we will harvest melons, tomatoes are in bloom and there will be a second (and even a third) pepper and jalapeño harvests next month. I love my little magickal garden! Here are some pics I took this morning:
Yemanya’s Palm, growing wonderfully. The palm bulb was brought by a witch friend on Yemanya’s day (Aug 15), and it was nothing but a dry ball of palm root. It took almost a month to see its first leave, and now nothing can stop her!
Borage, grown from seed – we didn’t know this would grow so well here, but there’s already another seedling pot growing.
Catnip, grown from seeds from the island of Las Palmas, also doing very good and already attracting my witchy cat girls.
Peppermint, grown for cuttings from Fernando’s parents, spreading like a plague on every pot :).
Baby Basil, grown from seeds from a friend – love the light in this image!
Our Papaya trees, growing wonderfully after the last transplant. Love the shape of the leaves.
African violets in full bloom – I see a gorgeous violet flower tea in the near future!
First Container (Mini)Harvest – And Lots Of Garden Pics :)
