I might’ve had a couple of fruit before but this year has been my most successful. Haven’t done anything different but it just looks happier. I got at least half a dozen real mandarins. Pretty tasty!

South moon blueberries flowering

New pink lemonade blueberries. First season growing this. Quite excited to try the berries when they happen.

Trusty Misty blueberries. Earliest to fruit. Actually, I think Misty never went 100% dormant. I got a couple of berries a week all though winter here in San Diego.

My husband just commented that these photos don’t look very healthy! Well that’s because they’re just flowering out of dormancy back in feb! Berries and more leaves to come soon!

2013 New pink lemonade blueberry – Winter greens and flowering fruit in containers – kale, Swiss Chard, flowering peach and pink blueberries

24 Nov

Peach is not flowering so much this year. Hopefully I will get some bigger peaches as there’s fewer flowers.
Swiss chard is so colorful! I grew these along with the kale from seed.

The lighter coloured leaved blueberry is a new Pink lemonade blueberry. So curious to see how these will taste.

Banana plant vs vanilla.

2 Oct

I bought these at the same time! Look who’s winning!
Incase you can’t see it. The vanilla is the tiny vine in front of the banana :)

I am hoping for bananas in its life time :) I read somewhere that bananas start flowering at 44 leaves. I have about 10. I don’t know how 30+ more leaves are gonna work with the tree in the current location. :/?

2013 New Loquat tree

20 Jun

The big one is about 4ft tall and I bought from a store. The little one was picked out from under a neighbours loquat tree. He’s only a foot tall and I randomly planted him with my last years aubergines for now.

Blueberry season!

11 May

So these are southmoon and misty blueberry bushes. They’re so amazingly productive and are doing so well in these small pots I am thinking of ditching all the other plants and just growing blueberries! I am so happy with these. Last weekend got a small handful of blueberries, this weekend, I got two handfuls that didn’t even make them back to the house. I love my weekly blueberry harvest.
Here’s some pics of ones to be ripened as I ate all the tasty ripe ones before taking pics.

Rehoming growing lotus

24 Mar

I moved everything around a little bit as the lotus water was getting yuckie and it needed a bigger home. I found this fish bowl laying around so hopefully it will be perfect for my little lotus.

Also added rocks to the vase lotus.
