Gardening Season is Here!

Weather has been warming up and that means gardening season is here again! We learnt our lesson for being over-ambitious last year. We still haven't depleted all the tomatoes juice and pickles that we canned last Summer, so we decided to tone-down this year and focus mainly on broccoli. I also experimented growing lettuce and spinach indoor, but it hasn't really turned out the way I'd like it to be. Anyway, here's a quick update of our progress so far.

New experiment...planting lettuce entirely indoor using recycled milk jugs. Even though we didn't really get much considering the amount of time we spent planting them, I consider this experiment a success. =) 

Bought quite a lot of bok choy from the Asian grocer for our CNY meal and decided to do another experiment of regrowing bok choy with its base. It didn't take long to regrow but started flowering after 3 weeks. So I got rid of them after cutting all the leaves for a meal. 

Our indoor 'garden' setup. Notice my efficient use of recycled items - egg cartons, egg shells, milk jugs, soy sauce bottle (for watering) and carton boxes. =P

Growth progress as of March 26, 2017. About time to transplant them in the garden.
