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. 

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

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….

May new plants. Figs and Goji berries

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

End of April 2014 update.

Surprisingly, my neglected garden isn’t as bountiful as it was when I tended to it more. Peaches are small, blueberries are fewer… Still, the few I get taste good. My pineapple guava is flowering once again, I think last year it didn’t do so much. And excitingly, my olive tree is flowering. The flowers are…

2014 Feb update. (A bit late) peaches and Blueberries

Tropic Prince a couple of weeks ago. Tropic Beauty just blossoming. South moon blueberries flowering New pink lemonade blueberries. First season growing this.

Excited about these plump little Southmoon Blueberries!

I thought my blueberry plants were done – leaves started dropping like crazy, branches were turning red and leaves turning brown with spots. Total disaster. I tried to temporarily adjust the ph of the soil with diluted vinegar and removed all the old leaves remaining. New leaves are coming in now and the blueberries are…

Sour Blackberries.

These berries are so plum and big. Makes me happy seeing them but not so happy eating them! They’re so sour! I actually worked out they taste so much better then they’re super ripe and juicy. But harder to pick as they collapse in your fingers and juice gets everywhere. But must resist picking early…

Sunshine Blue Blueberry flowering

Little cute pink flowers. There doesn’t seem to be any other branches flowering or these maybe the first. This blueberry plant is in a pretty small pot and it seems pretty content apart from the occasional caterpillar munching on the leaves.

Southmoon Blueberries

My lovely husband bought me some blueberry plants! Amazingly I do not already own one of these. Now I have two! They recommended buying two to pollinate each other for better crop so I have this one which is already fruiting, and I also have a Sunshine Blue Blueberry plant which is in a 1…
