New home

1 Dec

So I guess I haven’t posted in a year but lots of changes this year. We bought a home so now I have a small yard!

Planting as much stuff as possible in the ground and this week, I just planted some asparagus crowns into the ground.

I first started this blog when I planted asparagus in containers so it seems fitting to start the new chapter with asparagus too!

This time they’re in the ground!

I just bought these bareroot crowns from Walter Anderson in San Diego and decided to do put them somewhere I initially wanted ornament plants.

So still a little unconventional, these asparagus are partially going to ornamental for landscaping to hide an ugly fence. The spot is narrow and mostly shaded in the winter but I am hoping I will get some sun as the seasons change.

Supposedly, it can take some shade so let’s see how it goes!

So pretty. 
I don’t spend a lot of time caring for these, just dip them in water once every three weeks or so. 

Baby figs?

My little fig tree looks so happy in his new pot!! I thought this smaller one wasn’t as content as the other plant but looks like I will get getting my first dogs this year! 
I bought these off amazon or eBay…. 
I believe this is the violet de Bordeaux?!

Can’t bear to thin these guys but surely there will not be a good outcome?! 

More bountiful blueberries

This comes mainly from three plants. Al grown in containers. 

Spaghetti Squash succumb to proceed mildew :(

Here’s what I got! Unfortunately may grey has brought too much dewy foggy weather. 
Wonder how much flesh are in these little ones… Some are still soft skinned. So hopefully they will harden up?! 

Big bunch of Blueberries!

Here’s a good bowl of blueberries harvested 5/9/16
I also have a couple of peaches. My peach trees were damaged in the storm earlier this year so not many fruits this year.
