DIY Recycled Seedling Container

This time I just want to share with you my DIY Recycled seedling container. I used a toilet paper roll core, a plastic cup and a wooden ice cream stick as a plant label.
Using a toilet paper core is great for those plants with weak and slim roots, so you simply plant it together with the container into the ground, no need to take the seedling out.
It's pretty straightforward so I'm just going to share a picture.

Kali ini saya akan membagikan ide saya untuk membuat sendiri tempat untuk menanam biji dari barang bekas yaitu karton tissue roll, gelas cup plastik dan stik es krim kayu.
Menggunakan karton roll tissue ini sangat cocok untuk tanaman dengan akar yg tipis dan lemah. Tidak perlu mengeluarkan tanaman untuk dipindahkan, langsung saja tanam dengan tempatnya sekaligus. Bagus juga untuk mengurangi resiko tanaman stress saat pindah tanam.

New Hobby

So I have a new hobby now. Gardening. At first I was attracted to hydroponic vegetables, but I found that my house has a bad environment for it, and I had some trouble with pests so it has been put on hold for now. Then I learned about companion planting, and so I have diverted my attention to planting flowers. In the meantime I will continue to learn and experiment with hydroponics. Step by step I will share with you what I learned from the past few months.

This is my current favourite flowers. Torenia Kauai.

Wow, so it has been 5 years since I last updated this blog.
A lot of things has changed. Now I have a nearly 5 years old son and a nearly 3 years old daughter.
So I suddenly want to start writing again. Maybe it won't be about knitting or crocheting anymore. We'll see.
