This isn't anything new. In fact this group is quite old. Some day that blackberry lily on the left WILL bloom. When, is anybody's guess. I heard they usually bloom the second year but we're going on 2.5 years. To the right of that there is a small potted pineapple. Then some pineapple mint and the giant rosemary.
This pic shows the hacked up hibiscus hedge. It was starting to grow into the garden to i had to cut it back. I've since chopped off the top greenery. I went a little lower than the last time I trimmed them around January 1st. Conn usually frowns when he sees how much I cut them back but in another 6 months I'll be trimming it back again. It still amazes me how quickly nature recovers here.
Roma tomatoes. Tasty sauce and bruschetta.
Lima beans. Never grew them before. They proved hardy though i need to plant twice as many to get a worthwhile yield. Now waiting to see of the plants gives us a second crop.
This is a lethal pepper that sneakily found it's way into the garden. Lesson in proper seed packet marking. We're not into hot spicy things so this will remain pretty to look at.
Yay bell pepper! I leave them for as long as possible so they can turn red but they usually start to show signs of age before then. So they make they're way into a sausage and pasta dish, or vegetable fritatta.
Bottleneck gourd. These have proven difficult to grow. Gangbusters the first year, but since then hardly any yield. I have to be vigilant with the organic pesticides on this for it survive.
Fennel. Rough start with the seedlings on these. Now what to do with them?? Suggestions welcome.
More tomatoes. Tough to say whether these are Better Boys or Beefsteaks. One thing's for sure, they were delicious.
