Summer is almost here...

Now that it's getting warmer, the plants have been moved to the porch. The seeds have been planted, some have started sprouting and some are getting ready to flower.

Here are some of the plants from my summer garden:

Chilli/Cayenne pepper plant is getting ready to flower

Spinach almost ready to be picked for a salad or maybe dal...

Zucchini seeds have sprouted

Tomato plants are ready to be transferred to a bigger pot


  1. good going, mandira. all your plants look healthy, unlike ours


  2. Wow Mandira your plants look great. When did you start the spinach ? Mine has just come out :(

  3. Mandira, you have green thumb!!! I'm just so excited once seen your chili, then your zucchini!!! My herbs just had a bad year *sigh*

  4. Beautiful!! I already have Cherry tomatoes and few peppers out on the plants:))
    Aren't they a joy to look at those plants.Can't wait for next month.

  5. Your plants look superb. Can't wait for you to harvest the fruits and cook up more great food to feed us :)

  6. Looking good Mandira, green and fresh. Don't you love summer

  7. Your plants are looking nice and healthy. Even I have a small kitchen garden.Is zucchini a creeper?

  10. what a beauties !! i envy you know... i have no garden :((

  11. Thanks Bee, the plants seem to be doing well. I think they were waiting for summer too.

    Sandeepa thanks. I planted spinach end of April when the weather started to get better. Once they sprout, they grow at an amazing speed. :)

    Gattina - thanks. I'm just discovering my green thumb. But believe me, I've killed my share of plants.

    Asha - wow, you already have tomatoes! that's great. I am looking forward to your plant pics.

    Cynthia - I would love to do that ;) I will post regular updates on my plants.

    ISG - I can't believe it was not long ago I was cribbing about winter and now it's so sunny and warm. I'm sure the plants are thinking the same...

    Archana - don't you love kitchen gardens... zucchini is a creeper and I'm hoping to give it support on the porch once it starts bearing fruits.

    thanks Roopa. So what is growing in your garden?

    Jaya - I buy enriched soil and then use compost from time to time. It's fairly easy.

    Pravs - I have my garden in pots, and it works well for the apartment. Having a porch helps too. Maybe you can start with potting herbs in plants.

  12. So green Mandira. I love pot plants. Good job. Viji

    Thanks Sia, Richa. The plants are doing well. I think it has something to do with the nice sunshine we have had for the last week. :)
