Week 4 of the hydroponic system and its definitely looking good. The basil finally decided to make an appearance. The left side is growing rapidly with the coriander and dill doing fantastic and little sage in the middle is doing good but probably needs to be put in another slot to have space to grow for the light to reach. Still no sign of the spinach or oregano and its been 2 weeks so will look into what else to grow. Maybe try another variety of basil and give chamomile a second go.
Little baby hands are getting bigger. I wanted to take a cool picture of Triple V spinning the little ball on his toy but my phone camera probably isn’t that sophisticated and he just didn’t want to do it. Camera shy and all apparently.
Made some shawarma meatballs this weekend and the oil from the meat after being in the oven gave it a very odd shape. That peaked the desire to take a picture to realize that the photo balance is completely out of whack.
Its a tad blurry but its more the moment where Triple V definitely feels a lot more grown up with his sitting independently and about to reach his mobile which is also another to-do to take off the mobile soon.
My poinsettia has been with us since a few years back and its been doing pretty well. Other than not really understanding that its bloom season should be during Christmas, its been so beautiful to see the plant turn red.
Kicking off this week fashionably late with a nice and bright photo of the bloomed orchids. To be fair, the fact this orchid is growing is pretty awesome since a few months ago, I was really struggling with keeping it alive after we had shifted the plants around and it was having a hard time adapting to it new location.
Week 3 of hydropronic system! Things are definitely growing. After replacing the seeds for basil, oregano and what used to be chamomile and is now spinach, no sign of any germination yet. Everything is growing well except mustard looks like its starting to die with lemon balm pretty stagnant. Luckily, lemon balm was never my goal since I had an overgrowth of that in the garden already. We will keep trying basil until it works.
Take 2 of the orchids as they start to bloom. I really do love taking pictures of plants. Orchids are the only thing that grows well in my house but this time is less than usual. I do love the purple color. Take 3 with its full bloom is coming up probably after both of them have bloomed.
Oh..I do love food photography. While this wasn’t plated and has a rather messy feeling somehow I do like it. These are some Dan Dan noodles that we made . It might not look like much but it was really delicious.
The next target for Triple V’s toys is this musical ferris wheel. I don’t personally find this toy useful since what it can do is slightly limited but it doeshave a variety of sentences each of the baby animals say. Of course, it is rather nice since it is very colorful. I tried to find a better a angle but not really that inspired.
