My dragon fruit cactus flowered a couple of weeks ago and now I have what looks like a fruit….
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 stick.
Morning after still looks beautiful September 26th.
October 8th. Flower is all dried and shrivelled.
I am hoping it will turn into this
I only got one flower but here’s another one 🙂 fingers crossed 🙂
New flower October 8th.
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.
I might’ve had a couple of fruit before but this year has been my most successful. Haven’t done anything different but it just looks happier. I got at least half a dozen real mandarins. Pretty tasty!
These are all separate pickings. Some handfuls of blueberries didn’t make it back for photographing 🙂 so tasty! Still a few more on the plant left.
I moved everything around a little bit as the lotus water was getting yuckie and it needed a bigger home. I found this fish bowl laying around so hopefully it will be perfect for my little lotus.
Also added rocks to the vase lotus.
These guys grow fast! So I took this on before work.
And took this one just now, nine hours later!
I’m pleasantly surprised these little guys are growing already. I was so excited to see this tiny bit of greeness emerging from one of the seeds in the water bottle experiment.
I almost forgot to check out the seeds in the jar with seeding medium in it…
