    Question Markisa/Passion Fruit

    Thanks a lot. Yesterday, I took the 3 remaining fruits from the vine, 1 still green, I will see what happens with it, if I let it ripe. The most ripe fruit, I opened and it had a little more pulp. I think you are right, with my plant having less water. That, and it was in a polybag. Now, I got...

    Question Markisa/Passion Fruit

    Last time, I left my fruit on the vine till it got purple and dropped of from itself. Because, that's how I read you should do it. But, when I opened my fruit, it was empty... only a few seeds. So, it was failure. Now, I got new fruit(still small) on another vine and a friend told me, I had to...

    Dinner Guest

    So, I guess you don't eat the snake? Might not be allowed, I think. If one of those show up around here, the neighbour(Chinese/Indonesian) will take care of it... that's dinner.

    Papaya Leaf Problem

    As I told you very recently, I am not a pro... I had the same thing happening to my papaya... I've read somewhere that high humidity and low sunlight, could be the cause of the problem. In my case, that could very much the problem. Lots of rain and my plant is mostly in the shade.

    Question Goat manure mistake?

    I recently started gardening again and I am a complete beginner... now, I wonder if I made a mistake? A few days ago, I bought some old goat manure and threw it directly on top of my raised beds. All you see is the goat manure on top, you don't see any sand/dirt. Do you think that will be ok or...

    Hello from 'Den Haag', The Netherlands!
