these carrots were so ugly when I took them from the bottom of my fridge and now??

Tomatoes are getting too big for the kitchen now! Didn’t have any growbags (maybe could get em online but whatever) so I’ve planted them in big pots.
This multihybrid with a Trichocereus body comes from the German breeder Uwe Kahle. It has a classic Trichocereus body, but also involves other genera like Echinopsis and the flower looks very strange for a Trichocereus flower. In a way it resembles the flower of an Epicactus aka Epiphyllum and it´s always a treat to see the flowers.
This Trichocereus hybrid has pushed out lots and lots of flowers this season, and it keeps dropping most of them. I was able to pollinate TWO flowers in the end, but it was a very hard fight and it took me to make various repeated pollinations during the day. Some plants are hard to pollinate and it takes some serious will power to get the job done.
Bon mois d'Avril :)
Wall of pots and plaster figures I ended up improving the old flower pots and plaster figurines because I was bored and locked up in my house for 2 weeks because of the virus.
I want to be this soft nice person that gardens and takes photos of bugs and sketches all day. Lately though, I’ve been falling back into drinking and wanting to burn myself to cope with traumatic memories coming up.
I was getting ready to give up on the dahlia tubers I had planted last month. It rained so much in March that I had assumed that they had rotted. Today, I checked on them and guess what?! They’ve sprouted and are beginning to poke out of the soil!
What do you do while waiting for baking? My other favourite activity!
