Baby figs?

18 May


My little fig tree looks so happy in his new pot!! I thought this smaller one wasn’t as content as the other plant but looks like I will get getting my first dogs this year! 
I bought these off amazon or eBay…. 
I believe this is the violet de Bordeaux?!

And Goji Berries. The leaves actually fell off after I received the plant in the mail but look at these tiny little new leaves all along the branch! I think this guy will thrive here in San Diego

Banana plant vs vanilla.

2 Oct

I bought these at the same time! Look who’s winning!
Incase you can’t see it. The vanilla is the tiny vine in front of the banana 🙂

I am hoping for bananas in its life time 🙂 I read somewhere that bananas start flowering at 44 leaves. I have about 10. I don’t know how 30+ more leaves are gonna work with the tree in the current location. :/?

Elephant garlic with babies

20 Jun

What are these little guys? When I pulled the garlic out these looked like little offspring attached to the big bulb. Left it outside to cure and the little guys are rock hard like little seeds now. I think I’ll plant them and see what happens. I originally planted left over old garlic cloves last year and forgot about them. There’s one more bulb I haven’t pulled as its flowering.

Pineapple guava shedding leaves but still a couple of fruit left

6 Nov

I have probably had a dozen little strawberry sized pineapple guavas this year which I am most impressed with as I wasn’t expecting anything. The pulpy center has a very fragrant purfumey taste which my hubby described as soapy but to me, they taste like mixed, tropical, miscellaneous fruit flavour 🙂
