|My potted cucumbers (pickling).|
|My pimiento de padron grown from seed saved from nursery plant.|
|Thai Chilis (seeds from Renee's Garden). Some of the pods are rather large and fleshier than normal thai chilis.|
|The remains of one Super Sweet 100 plant, sun burnt leaves removed. Looks really scraggly and |
should be replaced with a new volunteer that sprouted up, but I just can't give up on it!
|My small patch of asparagus just gathering lots of energy for next spring.|
|Rosemary plant in need of a trim in my strawberry bed that needs to be replanted.|
|My border bed containing bush beans, more cucumbers, patty pan squash and bittermelon.|
|The bittermelon I have my eye on right now. Its about the size of a pinky.... I'm so excited!|
|Potted Asian herbs.|
|A Super Sweet 100 plant just waiting for a home (It sprouted up out of a |
Cala Lilly plant, kind of weird).
|My Dwarf lime plant, looks like we might actually get a lime this year!|
|My Pineapple Tomato plant in a smart pot.|
|Store bought basil (I had terrible germination issues this year) and a mystery |
tomato plant (my tags go stolen by one of the two boys or they may have
worked in conjunction, but highly unlikely).
|Another picture of the basil (photo makes it look a little off color doesn't it?).|
|Thai Chili bought from Lowes, pods look more like regular thai chili, hope they are hot!|
|Hot Banana Peppers, they have been yummy so far.|
|Zucchini and a hidden scrawly tomato plant.|
|My fig tree.|
|My first fig of the season.|
|Corn being grown for looks and to hid the hole in the fence the dog |
keeps trying to visit the neighbors dog through. Looks like we may get enough corn for 2 dinners.
|My mom's favorite plant, my lemon grass.|
|Watermelon plant, planted in April, but languished and did absolutely nothing until very recently. |
Good thing we have a LONG growing season.
|Horseradish in a pot (I am so lazy, and digging the horseradish out last year was hard work.....)|
|A pot of green garlic and some thyme.|
|My Super Sweet 100 plant that is not doing well, horrible powdery mildew.|
|Chives and garlic chives.|
So that's where the magic happens.... I wish that we had more space that received good sunlight to have more beds, but we make due with what is around. My main struggle on a day to day basis in the backyard is keeping the grass and palm trees alive (and keeping the dog out of freshly amended soil... but that is a whole different issue!). Now it is time to turn my thinking to the fall/winter plants that I would like to see in the garden. We really don't get a frost here in SoCal, so I really do not have an excuse to not have a wonderful harvest every week.
What is going on in your garden today?
