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. 

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.

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.

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

Excited about these plump little Southmoon Blueberries!

13 Mar

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 plumping up nicely.

Very exciting there are so many berries on the plant!

Potting up container Fruit trees. Hopefully doing it right this time!

Some of my container fruit trees look so sad. Even though I gave them a larger pot and fresh dirt a year ago. I had to investigate what was happening underneath the soil as I leaves kept dropping no matter what I sprayed or how much a fertilized (without over fertilizing).

When I took them out of the pots, i was sad to see some of the poor trees root were still in the shape of their previous pots 😦 this meant 1)I hadn’t done it properly and/or 2) I didn’t change the pot soon enough.

I need to read up some more about potting up but I remember seeing videos about using a fork to tease out the roots do I did that. I also carefully removed the old dirt from the root ball.

I noticed some dirt was thick like dark clay, and some other parts was dry and crumbly. I don’t think thats a good sign!

Hopefully I didn’t mess too much with the roots to distress the trees too much.

Here are my two trees that had the saddest roots.
