Still learning
« on: February 10, 2018, 14:12:52 PM »
Still learning to garden out here but my best guestimate is that Turkey is 2 months ahead of UK planting for seeds.....

a few pics from my garden.

This succulent grows wild out here & have since found out it's got a few names , mother of 1000's (probably as baby plants on leaves ) alligator plant,  Mexican hat plant,  is also toxic to cats & dogs if digested.

There are 100's of ex pat's right now wondering when the parsnips will be ready. Many have tried but only Sandy in Nif succeeded and now she's moved to France :(

That gives me even more of an incentive to grow parsnips successfully,  will be sure to post weather I succeed or not.
