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!

Veggies in every space possible! Celery and kale May 2018

So I have an original planter which is now shaded by a giant banana tree which hasn’t been doing too much. I am trying some green veggies that maybe could survive without full sun and could be harvested as needed. Let’s see how these goes. I have a Japanese pepper in there left over from…

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…

Broccolini nom nom

This is the third harvest of broccolini from this season. I have previously grown broccolini in a container before but this is much more successful in a bed. The sprouts are so tender and fresh, I think next year I will grow more so I can grow enough to share with the family too ๐Ÿ™‚…

Vegetable planter :) wow!

Feb 14th 2017 April 1st above! Still so neat! I just added the trellis for the tomatoes since I don’t have a cage. And this below is April 19th. Only 18 days from when I put the trellis in and now you can barely see it! Growth is insane! The squash is turning into a…

New home

So I guess I haven’t posted in a year but lots of changes this year. We bought a home so now I have a small yard! Planting as much stuff as possible in the ground and this week, I just planted some asparagus crowns into the ground. I first started this blog when I planted…

Spaghetti squash babies getting bigger!ย 

I’m always surprised how quickly they grow! Only pollinated a week ago and now I have 4 little mini squashes! I am not sure which pits they’re coming out of, I have three pots each with two plants.. Hopefully each plant will bear at least one squash. 

Tasty pitaya! Ripe and so tasty

We decided to pick the pitaya dragon fruit even though it didn’t appear as bright pink as some of the pictures. I did ready it takes about 30 days from flower to ripe. So I think i ended up picking it at 45 days. The tentacles coming off the fruit started having slightly dry looking…

Dry cure olives 3 weeks laterย 

Was surprised to see the dry curing olive jar with moist salt and a fluid level.  Did all that fluid come from the olives? Or did water enter the jar from the atmosphere? It’s a mystery ๐Ÿ™‚ guess I should’ve weighed the jar first!       As you can see they’re all wrinkly!! We tasted…
