Tending To My Vegetables (Not A Euphemism)

In the greenhouse: Seedlings after 2 months

As-salam`alaykum eco-dudes,

Let me begin by making a du`a that your life is teaching you the greatest things you need. And may Allah help you learn them.

Right. I haven't shared the developments of my eco-garden for almost a month, and alhamdulillah, what a truckload of developments we've had. New things have sprouted, colours appeared and shapes have bulged. And that was just me.

planted a variety of vegetable seeds in February-April in my greenhouse and garden. If you don't have a garden, get a large container for herbs or join an allotment group (they're really fun). From June to now, July, many vegetables have grown and been eaten, but I want to share with you what happened during the in-between time:

CORN! 8 inches tall (easier to care for than I thought)

I don't know why this image of tomato plants has 'yellowed' on screen. 
They are a lush green shade. Tut.


Runner beans grown in biodegradable cardboard pots.

Peas have great character. Fiddly, curly leaves, with a tendency to grow 'wobbly' and shoots that latch onto the nearest objects. They're very clingy.

A quick dash to the compost heap! 

Unusual growth from a cucumber plant that decided to grow out of a tear. Note how it's growing vertical. All things point upwards.

I love how these things already know what to do. 
Refer to Qur'an, 96:3-5

From a seed to a plant. This is a metaphor for charity. Subhan'Allah.

So that was what's inside my greenhouse (also not a euphemism).
In mid-June I took the plants outside to their new home.

Peace and wholesome jihad.
Zaufishan, the eco muslim

  1. Awesomeness! Plants look kh'amazing ma'sha'allah. Indeed, so great how they already know what to do - just another ayah for one thing! The tomato plants don't look yellowed on screen, so no "tut' from me, lol. 

    The cucumber plant - leaves in general want to seek light, so upwards they must go, right? 

    Anyways, love these plant posts, thanks for the update Sis!
