Cacti and Oranges

Kaikki kaktukseni ovat viettäneet kesän joko ulkona puutarhassa tai parvekkeella pienessä kasvihuoneessa. Vain pari vanhaa kaktusta kuoli, mutta muut olivat selvästi tyytyväisiä kuumaan kesään. Kaikki ovat kasvaneet ja pari on jopa kukkinut. Viimeisten kuvien kaktuksen olen kasvattanut siemenistä (ruokakaupasta ostetusta hedelmästä, joka oli muistaakseni pitaija) noin viisi vuotta sitten ja se on kasvanut jo aika isoksi. Kaikki St. paulia -pistokkaat ovat tuottaneet uusia lehtiä ja appelsiinit ovat kasvaneet.

I've kept all my (eight) cactuses either outside in the garden or on the balcony in a little greenhouse for the summer. A couple of old ones died but the others seem to have been very happy. Some have flowered and all have grown a lot. The cactus in the last photos is one that I've grown from seeds (that I got from a fruit from the grocery store, probably pitaya) maybe five years ago and it's gotten pretty big. Also, all of my Saintpaulia cuttings have grown and my oranges have gotten a bit bigger.

This blog has turned into a bit of a garden/plant blog lately but it's just because I've been making my master's thesis project this summer (and still am), which is really frustrating at times, and doing little things in the garden here and there just makes me feel better. I've also been doing some crafts during the summer and I'll be blogging about those over the autumn.
