So..I attempted to grow lychee from seed from store-bought.. Success!
However.. just noticed that some are going totally brown or partially brown..
I have them on the kitchen window sill and water them daily.
Can someone please advise me as to what I am doing wrong? Recently potted them into individual pots and have good potting soil.
We decided to learn how to groom our little Penny to save money in the long run :p This is just the 1st cut.. It is meant to look funny.. Will have another go once I get my working blades..
So we have an olive tree which came with our home.. what to do? Eat them=p Unless you are our dog or the birds.. it’s too bitter.. So curing is needed.
There are so many methods out there as to how to cure your olives.. The method I choose was one which saved water aka not have to change it everyday;)
I created a 10% salt brine solution [I used 900 ml of water to 100 g of salt per batch] and put that in my bottle of olives and the tip here is to top off with olive oil so that it doesn’t go moldy. [Found that out from experience]
If there is mold on the top of your olives, just scoop it off and wash your olives well and re-bottle in the salt brine solution.
Instead of changing the solution everyday.. I only had to change it once every 7 days.
Also make sure not to fill it too full in the bottles or you’ll have olive oil all over your bench top! [ Ah the joys of experimentation]
So now that I have cured my olives in many batches.. cos the tree just wants to make life interesting for me=p
What do I do next please?
