B螞RE ROOTS

My name is Jaya and welcome to BARE ROOTS: a collection of photographs and ramblings about my garden. I don't know much about gardening but my dad and I have always wanted to grow (most of) our own food. We are in the process of turning our backyard into our own little fruit and veg haven. Let's hope this works!

All photos on this blog are mine unless otherwise stated.

This is a bad photo but I cut open a (store bought) pineapple today and found a good amount of seeds! I’ve never seen pineapple seeds dispersed in the flesh of a pineapple so at first I thought they were bugs or something!

I can’t wait to plant these babies! 馃崓馃崓馃崓

recycled / replanted some coriander and spinach today! i know coriander can regrow from roots but i’m not sure about spinach (i’ve heard spinach can regrow)! 

roots are all organic, we got them from a local asian farmers market nearby. i asked my parents to save the roots (after they made spinach and potato curry and coriander chutney)

dug up one half of my main garden bed to get rid of all the mint

learn from my mistakes! do not plant mint in a garden bed or any patch of land where you wanna plant other things! mint is an invasive pest and it will take over! plant mint in a large pot - you’ll be saving yourself from a half day of back breaking digging!
