Dec 2017. Volunteers from compost and asparagus one month growth

21 Dec

So tall! Over a foot tall! Unfortunately I do not know how old these crowns are. I am going to assume one year crowns. Impulse buy 🙂

I think I have some kind of squash! First time used some compost. I have a closed bin which possibly has zucchini seeds from the old zucchini I grew earlier this year or spaghetti squash seeds. I hardly buy any squash. So excited to see what we are getting!

Also I see a couple of tomatoes. We had a random volunteer that grew and grew and grew. It was a pear yellow cherry tomato and was very productive so these are likely from that.

New home

1 Dec

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 asparagus in containers so it seems fitting to start the new chapter with asparagus too!

This time they’re in the ground!

I just bought these bareroot crowns from Walter Anderson in San Diego and decided to do put them somewhere I initially wanted ornament plants.

So still a little unconventional, these asparagus are partially going to ornamental for landscaping to hide an ugly fence. The spot is narrow and mostly shaded in the winter but I am hoping I will get some sun as the seasons change.

Supposedly, it can take some shade so let’s see how it goes!

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?! 

Tiny Meyer lemon tree with overloaded branch. What to do?

Can’t bear to thin these guys but surely there will not be a good outcome?!

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. :/?
