I've had some successes, cant believe how well the asparagus and raspberries have done.
And lots of failures.
Last year I tried in vain to grow ginger and turmeric, the ginger grew but produced nothing! However I thought I would give the turmeric another shot as I really want to have this fresh. The ones I planted before I bought from an Asian green grocers so this time I ordered some from Greenharvest. I have also been trying to grow sweet potatoes with a similar result so also ordered a purple sweet potato. I figure if I get these things going I will have them for ever.
Well i planted them months ago, before I went away. there has been no sign of them and then, miraculously, the day before yesterday, here they are.
Looking nice and healthy. My optimism remains intact, for the present.
