More bountiful blueberries

18 May

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

Big bunch of Blueberries! 

18 May

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. 

Some other photos from a May and June – peaches, blueberries, tomatoes

A jar of fruit harvest. Last of the 2014 peaches

I was wondering when these were going to ripen but they ended up being crunch tasty peaches this year instead of soft ones. Which was actually awesome as they didn’t fall off and rot when neglected for a week or so 😉

Small but tasty. Definitely not tart, even hubby liked them this year. I wonder what makes them soft and juicy some years and other years like this batch….

Some thing to do with weather… I love natures variety but am sad I have to wait a whole year to sample more!

All these we’re from container trees/plants. Seems like a got fewer blueberries this year. Southmoon definitely produces tastier larger berries. Misty is tasty too but some are small but seems to have a longer fruiting season.

Here’s another batch of peaches from earlier in the week.

Another jar of paler peaches from earlier in the year. These are from the tropic prince tree. Did not taste too good. Very tart and softer. Occasional juicy one. These were falling off the tree back in April so it picked them all.

End of April 2014 update.

1 May

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 tiny! I just bought this little tree about a month or two ago.

Finally, my fennel is starting to look like fennel. Boy these take a long time to grow but are very pretty plants.

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.

My blueberries are flowering too. I feel like everything flowered a month early this year.

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