Big bunch of Blueberries! 

18 May

Here’s a good bowl of blueberries harvested 5/9/16
I also have a couple of peaches. My peach trees were damaged in the storm earlier this year so not many fruits this year.

Spaghetti squash babies getting bigger! 

23 Apr

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

13 Nov

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 edges so I decided it was ready. It was a risk as apparently they don’t ripen anymore once picked. 

I am so glad I did as it was on a tiny bit of the soft side but still so good and sweet and not mushy!!!
   
    
    
 
Once I photographed it inside, it actually appeared more pink in the images so maybe that’s why other people’s looked so much brighter than mine! 
  Here’s #2!

Going to pick him at under 45 days!
Look at the colour change of #1

   
    
 

Blushing ripening Pitaya dragonfruit!!!

Check it out, finally turned from green to pink and hopefully to that bright shocking pink! 

   
 

I only had two flowers, it was the first time my pitaya has flowered and so lucky to have two fruits. You can see the green little dragon fruit by the wall in the first picture.

Loads of homegrown tomatoes

24 Jun

all shapes and sizes! I cheated this year and bought a couple mixed toms six pack seedlings from Home Depot. Here they are all grown up!!

Since I’m low carbing right now, I will have to limit myself and my lucky neighbours will win out!
   
 

I growed these! Tango mandarins and Meyer Lemon. February 2015 already?!

12 Feb

Yay, first decent fruit from my trees. I have to say I have been watering and caring for this tango mandarin for many years and only now I can say it is producing edible fruit and quite a few for a small tree.

The Meyer lemon tree I have only had for a year. So impressed I get one big fat juicy lemon.

Hope I have many more happy citrus years to come.
