    Here are cutting from the same mother plant grown in the shade. View attachment 10126 View attachment 10127

    As you can see they are much more green. This is typical of most "variegated" plants

    Here are some of the rooted cuttings

    How to get to Saturday’s Seed and Plant Exchange.
    The exchange will be held at my house on this Saturday from 9 to 12 AM. We can adjourn to Bambulo after if participants want to have lunch or a cool drink as it is only a short distance away. We will have some drinks available at the house. Bring food and snacks if you like, it would be appreciated. I still have no idea how many will come.
    My house is located in Cambado, Bacong, located on the Bacong-Valencia Road. The house has a yellow block/stucco wall with wrought iron on top of it in a scalloped pattern and with flowering plants and foliage in front of the wall. The Wall has orange columns and trim.

    Here is how to get to the house.
    From Dumaguete or any place north of Bacong:
    Go south to the Central market area of Bacong, turn right and go up two intersections and then turn right. Again, Go two intersections and turn left. Then go one intersection and turn right, you will now be on a dirt road (this is a detour road because of road construction). Go one block and turn left onto the Bacong-Valencia road which is dirt under construction for less than 0.1KM and you will be on the Bacong-Valencia Road, , heading west. My house is approximately 0.6 KM on the right after getting on paved road. If you have gotten to Bambulo Resort, you have gone too far… read directions from Valencia. (PLEASE NOTE: The Bacong-Valencia Road is under construction which is why you have to detour through town.)
    From Dauin or anyplace south of Bacong:
    Just turn left off the National Hiway into Central market area and follow the directions above from the Central Market.
    From Valencia:
    Go east on the Bacong- Valencia road toward Bacong. Once you pass Bambulo on the left, my house is an addition 0.9 KM on the left.

    Here is one that I have planted in my garden. I have some garden pests that require that I put a wire screen around my young plants. The pest are “Brat” and “Trouble , two young cats that love to play, and roll around in the garden, breaking the plants. I am hoping these screens will act as support as the plant grow, especially for the Zucchini, tomatoes and other plants that need to have their fruit kept up off the ground from over pests and the fruit rotting from hitting the soil.
    I will be planting some Zucchini “Black Beauty” from seed today, supplied by Kelpguy. I will have additional seed available. Thanks Kelpguy…
    The sales price is usually 200 P per Kg at Robinson, so growing your own is cheaper and you have better control of how they are raised. Robinson seems to be the only place in town regularly selling Zucchini

    Nice_Sherwood delivered to my house earlier in the week some beetroot (a couple of varieties) and strawberry seeds. I planted some beetroot but I did not plant strawberry seeds yet. Being from California I remember the effort that the farmers put into the strawberry fi but there were many pest issues also.

    I think you were also interested in Zucchini plants. I have two varieties growing, with one variety available now. I have seed for both varieties.

    Getting ready for tomorrow....

    I got a message from Redneck's wife saying he will not be able to attend tomorrow. If there are any other people interested to bring snacks then feel free to do so. Unfortunately I still have no idea how many will be attending.

    I will also be happy to answer any question anyone has, or accept any ideas and advice from anyone. Although I have a long time horticultural experience, the Philippines is still new to me in many ways I am still learning myself. I do hope that as many people as possible can get as many different type of seeds to try and report that success and failures, we always have both.

    There is a garden group on here now. I will post pictures of the event after it ends. Please join the garden group so we know who is interested in gardening and so we can exchange information in the forum regarding gardening.

    I have to go in town now to pick up some things for tomorrow.
