Volunteer compost squash.

As I suspected these are very very likely spaghetti squash volunteers. Here’s the plumpest squash baby so far! I hope to get a dozen to last me through the season!

Three sisters May 2018

I found some old corn seeds so I had enough for a very small patch and after they started growing strong I decided to expand the corn patch. Hopefully it will mean I will get 2 good staggered harvest of corn. The peas I also found laying around! Hey why not! And before I knew…

Pitaya Dragonfruit timeline. Flower to fruit :) 

My dragon fruit cactus flowered a couple of weeks ago and now I have what looks like a fruit….    September 19th   September 22th    September 23rd.    Before opening September 25th.      The same night it opened. We attempted to play night time bumblebee and poked around at th pollen/stamen parts with a…

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…

Air plants flowering!

So I bought these on eBay. Something like 10 or 15 dollars for a clump. I separated them and gave some away.

Flowering Pineapple Guava

Flower buds are swelling and you can see a bit of colour! So exciting! Photo from a April 30th Photo from May 3rd Photo from today, May 5th. Just updated!

Two lucky Globe Artichokes.

On my walk to class, I always check out the local gardens in the Clairemont neighborhood as the weather is slightly different there than coastal SD even though it’s only 5 miles from the coast. There are more canyons and cliffs here and there and on a hilly area between two detached houses, I saw…

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…

Tropic Prince Peach blossoming – lots of pics

The bees love my little peach trees! There’s always one or two bees buzzing around every time I go out to check on my garden. The Tropic Beauty Peach flowered a few weeks before this Tropic Prince. This one is the tropic prince tree. Flowers on the Tropic Beauty are almost done and the leaves…

A Happy Bee came to visit my Peach Blossoms!

How cool! I managed to see a little bee doing its magic and pollinating my Tropic Beauty peach flowers. So many flowers have opened now, they’re so pretty. Nice to think they are naturally pollinated by this little guy, as usually I literally give nature a hand and hand pollinate with a little stick. Here…
