Welcome back to the Living Loft with an exciting hibernation from Denali!
Tour the garden so far this winter and make some medicinal pesto!
Potato Updates: When last we (you) saw the potatoes they were just over the height of the storage container I had them in. Well they continued growing… and growing… and growing… until they were falling over and really leggy. We finally swirled them around each other on top of the container full of… Continue reading Potatoes and Denali Updates + Seeds!

A little background for those newer readers to my blog, this blog actually started with me acquiring an Amorphophallus titanum, otherwise known as the Corpse Flower. The A. Titan is the largest inflorescence in the world… Continue reading Leaf 2 Unfurling!

That’s ~1 inch in 11 days! You can see in the photos I still have her on the heat pad which,… Continue reading Growing Up

It was around 30° the day of the move and I was worried about trying to move the plants, especially Denali, during those temperatures. We wrapped her in a plastic trash bag to… Continue reading Surviving the Move
