Last years plants that survived mild San Diego winter.

20 Jun

The rainbow peppers and cherry peppers are coming on three years old! But they don’t look as healthy as the second year plants. Some of these eggplants I only just noticed as I was snapping 🙂

Dragon fruit cactus thriving

20 Jun

This started off as two chunks of cactus given to me and now look at it! I had to replant in a heavy pot as it was getting so long, it fell and broke. Hopefully it will be happier in this nice pot given to me from a neighbour 🙂

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.

2013 So many blueberries and peaches! Amazing what you can grow out of a pot

20 Jun

These are all separate pickings. Some handfuls of blueberries didn’t make it back for photographing 🙂 so tasty! Still a few more on the plant left.

Elephant garlic with babies

20 Jun

What are these little guys? When I pulled the garlic out these looked like little offspring attached to the big bulb. Left it outside to cure and the little guys are rock hard like little seeds now. I think I’ll plant them and see what happens. I originally planted left over old garlic cloves last year and forgot about them. There’s one more bulb I haven’t pulled as its flowering.
