Egeltje - Hispa atra
Voordeel aan een deel van je tuin ecologisch te beheren, met wat hoger gras en veel (echte) wilde bloemen is dat je al eens verrast kan worden...
Eergisteren was het de beurt aan een kever waarnaar ik al lang op zoek was.
Een schitterend, maar klein, kevertje die niet zomaar zijn naam kreeg, het Egeltje.
Ze leggen eitjes in grassoorten waarin de larven een mijn vormen en er zich mee voeden.
Zou een goede inspiratie kunnen zijn voor metalbands als Gwar of Lordi..
Some new tomatoes varieties for the garden this year, meet chocolate sprinkles & deep burgundy. The 1st & 2nd photos are the chocolate sprinkles & the last photo is the deep burgundy. These tomatoes have such a neat color pattern to them even while green. Between the two when it comes to flavor, I prefer the chocolate sprinkles. Both maintain their firmness quiet well, but the sprinkles is sweeter than the deep burgundy.
If you wondering whether it taste like a hint of chocolate; unfortunately, no. Darn, right!?! 😂 Will I be growing it again, definitely yes. I need to save seeds, but I’m afraid it got cross pollinated with other variances. So, next year, I need to make sure that I take preventative measures to ensure the seeds stay true.
Are you growing new tomato varieties in your garden?
Just picked what’s most likely the last batch of tomatoes. The plants are withering away and dying, not pulling them all out yet, there’s still a few with green tomatoes and some with flowers, so who knows! But ripping out what I did rip out is sad. Here’s to canning some sauce this week! The pepper plants are still going strong, we may not be loving this late September heat but they sure are!! They’re still green as they were in the spring and still setting fruits and flowers. I’ll miss this in a few weeks, but I have big plans for next season! #homstead#gardenlife#growyourown#imobsessed
My obsession with seeds finally paid off. Recently, I bought a Korean melon from the store, fed it to the family and planted some of the seeds as an experiment. Well today, I caught my first glimpse of an adorable baby melon.......grown from a store bought fruit. Aren’t seeds just simply amazing? 😮🍈🍈😮

This massive bulbous plant is a swamp lily! It has leaves up to 2m long & its sap has been used as antidote for marine stingers like jellyfish! 😮 You can find it in our Glasshouses on your next visit 👀
The last of the summer #cucumber 😢🥒. It’s always sad when harvests come to and end, but it was time to clean out the patch (powdery mildew had set in and no new fruits were forming) to make way for fall greens - salad, spinach, chard. After a few years of battling cucumber beetles I finally had a great summer for cucs. I lost count after picking 40 and ended up giving away more than 50% of what I grew. I actually lost half of my May seedling transplants to shock and by the time I re-started and replaced those it was already mid-June. That actually created a nice mix of plants that were 30 days ahead or behind, giving us a constant supply of cucumbers for over 2 and a half months. When some started to fade their production, new ones were ready to take their place. Next year I’m going to stagger 3 successive plantings in an even larger patch, for an even longer season!
I love the look of Gazanias but the flowers are only open when the sun is out so there’s a limited window when I can appreciate its flowers. My Gazanias are still shut when I leave early for work (they’re still sleeping, I’d like to think) and already ready for bed when I get home from work, which is unfortunate. I love this shade of orange but I may have to reassess their role in my tiny garden next year. #gazania#orangeflowers@mygardenthismonth@gardengreatorsmall#mygardenthismonth#gardengreatorsmall
I love growing Basil!! 😍 It's Tasty, healthy, and easy to grow. Plus there are a bunch of different varieties to choose from, all with unique flavors. I got the mother to this plant years ago and have cloned it quite a few times. They are so easy to propagate at one point I had over a dozen huge basil bushes going. If you came to my house at the time you either left with a big bag of basil for pesto, a plant, or some cuttings that where already rooting and ready to be planted. 😂 I have since calmed my obsession with cloning basil and moved on to other easy to propagate plants. It was getting a little out of hand 🤣
I can't remember the name of this variety.. does anyone know?
