Spectrum in my garden

Its been more than a month since my last post. So what pushed me to write this post? Flowers in my garden…. They are so beautiful and vibrant that anyone will want to talk about them, write about them. Most of the flowers that you will see in this post were started from seed. I had blogged about the seed starting as well. I will end here.. over to my camera..

I always like the element of surprise when you sow a seed mix of flower and waiting for the flower to open to know the color.

When I saw this bud opening it looked like white “Ok!. We have a white aster”

Oh Wait.. May be not.. may be its a white with a purple lining

MyGarden 362

Uh oh wrong again.. Not white! I think its purple…

MyGarden 363

Oh not purple? Ok somewhere between blue and purple..

When I had been to the Lalbagh Flower Show, I picked up two carnation seedlings which were supposed to be Yellow and Pink as promised by the Dutiful shopkeeper. As always, both of them turned out to be Pink. No worries, pink is beautiful too :D.

In one of my previous posts, I had written about seed starting french marigolds, Tithonia and coleus. Its almost two months now since the day I sowed them. I will let the pictures speak about how happy the plants are …

Beauty-full tub..

After seeing these marigold flowers in the garden, my wife started singing the song “Genda Phool”

Ha.. this flower needs some introduction. This is “Tithonia” aka Mexican sunflower. I planted this at the same time I did the marigolds and this one took longer and longer to grow let alone bloom. More I wait, taller it got. I now know why it took so long. Creating such a piece of art takes time.. long time.. Here is tithonia blooms for your viewing pleasure.

I did it. Finally I was able to break a month’s silence. If not for the flowers which I have been busy nursing this post would not have seen daylight. Thanks to the flowers..

Pear tomatoes or Garden candy?

This is what I have been waiting for. The amazing transformation. Its like a green signal light going yellow isn’t it?

This pic below was taken as part of my previous post on Yellow pear.

This is what the above became in couple of days. The first thing I did was to show my folks and they were speechless looking at this.

For us, the gardening folks this may not be a great thing to see ( though it kinda is). But there is this non-gardening kind. They go crazy looking at this bulb.( Atleast thats what my colleagues at work thought). The skin of the fruit becomes a little transparent yellow.

Look at this “Idea” bulb.

Its me holding that tomato, just to give an idea of the size.

MyGarden 373

Ok.. I can hear ya.. how did it taste?!!

I was expecting a very sweet tasting tomatoes,especially with the bars set so high by my old red cherry tomato plant. It was tasting sour. I am not sure if this is how it tastes. I will check with DoH folks. Also, I took it immediately it changed to yellow. Green->Yellow just took two days. May for the next truss, I will leave it on the plant for a week and taste it.(if they still remain in the plant).

more later..
