Thought I'll do a quick gardening update, since I've acquired a few new plants, recently.
We will start indoors for a change, where the passion fruit vine cuttings have been potted up! I tented the pot with a 2-gallon sized plastic bag and have kept it on the counter of the pass through between the kitchen and the family room to see if the cuttings will root. According to what I read, it will take about a month for the cuttings to root! There is, also, a small piece of pothos in a teacup, kept to root!

In the family room, the vase with more pothos cuttings, that used to be on the top of the entertainment center, was moved to the sideboard, to keep company with the duck planter:
Outside, on the backdoor steps, we have the hellebore plant that M brought me:
And the jade plant cutting he brought me - not quite sure what type of jade plant it is, but, the leaves look a lot like those of the gollum jade:
We have started the winter garden, planting cool weather crops, since we can garden all year round. In the planting bed just outside the back door, which has wire mesh around it, where the okra plants grew, we now have purple mizuna and Japanese purple mustard plants, growing:

In another bed, a bit further down the garden, and also surrounded by wire mesh, we have two type of peas planted: snow peas on one side and snap peas along the other side:
