July update. Olives, goji berries and ugly fairy tale eggplant

20 Jul

My little goji berry twig from eBay had started flowering. Can’t wait for some little berries.

It’s quite twiggy looking so I transferred it to a bigger hanging pot. Looks better already. Probably shouldn’t repot whilst it’s flowering but it looks kinda hardy. Let’s hope I’m right!




Here’s my little olive tree. Lots of leaves.


And my crazy fast growing Dragon Fruit cactus.


It’s about 5 ft tall and out of control! All efforts to tame it has left me with prickles so now it’s against the wall so the wall can support it.

Here’s the two little figs from eBay from the same seller as where I bought the goji berry from.

Still a lot of growing til I get real figs.

Here’s my messy area. I also brutally cut some big fat branches off the blueberries as I vaguely remember reading that any over an inch in diameter had to be cut. I hope i didn’t make that up! Anyway, lots of grooming to hopefully make healthier plants.




And lastly, the ugly fairy tale eggplant. Why are the colours so bland?!



May new plants. Figs and Goji berries

25 May

New from a seller in ebay…super cheap little plants.

Mission fig


Violet de bordeux fig


And Goji Berries. The leaves actually fell off after I received the plant in the mail but look at these tiny little new leaves all along the branch! I think this guy will thrive here in San Diego
