Thanking the OldGardenerGuy - Planting Tropicals - Lentil Soup - Birds





I exchanged a few seeds with Rob, OldGardenerGuy, in Finland and received a surprise package in return full of very interesting things that will be added to my garden this summer. Thank you Rob. I received my order of seeds for three different tropical food plants and potted them up in the grow room. If they germinate they should make for some very interesting house plants. Pruned my Chilli Peppers for the second time and reviewed the plants that are growing under lights. Made a very interesting Lentil Soup from a recipe that my sister gave me, topped off with red wine vinegar which surprisingly adds a very nice flavour. To close off the video a look at some of the birds at the winter feeder.
