Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog!

I suppose I should do the whole introduction thing...

My name is May. I'm from rural Canada, and I'm a hobbyist. My interests are diverse and varied, ranging from programming to piloting aircraft to fly tying. But my primary past time is gardening. Over the years, I have attempted some insane feats, including growing a banana tree indoors (which has been a tremendous success thus far!). I continue to expand my interests, and learn more of the existing ones.

I hope this blog will be of some help to anyone seeking a new hobby, or to anyone looking to improve or even just talk about their existing ones.

See ya soon!



  1. So, have you gotten the banana tree to actually bear fruit?

  2. Always nice to bump into a fellow Canadian! looking forward to more stories and possibly pics of your harvests? enjoy!

  3. Ah, I haven't gotten it to bear fruit yet. So far, it stands about two meters high. It should be getting fairly close to flowering. Perhaps in the next year or two.

  4. Whoa! It takes YEARS for it to flower?

    Have you ever tried growing avocado indoors?

  5. Under tropical conditions, it'll flower in nine months to a year. But in my climate, without a grow light, it takes considerably longer. Add to that the two new pups it's supporting, and yeah, it'll take some time. =D

    I haven't tried avocados yet. I had some limited success with papayas, though.

  6. Great blog, i will follow for sure :)

  7. Wow this is great, I live in the tropics and I've tried my hand at growing various plants...up until now I've grown pumpkin, tamarindo(don't know its english name if any)lemon, mango(two different kinds) and recao(again i don't know the names of the plants in english) I'll follow this blog since it looks really interesting plus your recipe had me sold x3

  8. Picking up a hobby in rural Canada seems to be the best idea. For that matter, a hobby in rural anywhere is best to keep you sane, especially in those dreary winter months.

    I do enjoy gardening also.
