I am a passionate developer at work and bookworm/gardener/cook in my free time.

I love regular expressions and am really fond of Perl.

Recently I am more and more into Java, RESTful webservices and Jboss AS7 technologies.

comment What is the best way to sprout Lychee seeds?
I have had a partial success with the ehow method. I planted 5-6 seeds into one pot 4 years ago, two of which sprouted. The smaller one didn't make it, after relocation to bigger pot it died away. The other one was ok for 3 years but then started having yellow leaves. This winter it died altogether. I think I'll be starting a new patch this year, if I can get hold of fresh lychee fruits here.

comment Is there an almond that grows inside a peach?
Sure, I'm just saying that fruit+nut in one and the same plant is not a bad idea

comment Is there an almond that grows inside a peach?
Well, here in Bulgaria we usually keep the appricot pits when eating appricots or making preserves from them. You then dry the pits and store them. You crack them open whenever you need the nut inside. So, I would say that having almond+peach in one and the same place will be useful to some people...

comment Ginkgo Biloba growth rate
+1 from me. I also want to grow Ginkgo Biloba in container, but I have read they become really big trees over time.

comment How do you safely and effectively stop a cat from pooping in your yard?
I have also thought of adding a small cat-toilet for them, but really hope I'll manage to discourage them. The idea of cleaning neighbours' cat toilets constantly doesn't appeal to me. Plus, it'll look bad...
