This post is a bit late. I took these pictures on January 30, better late than never.
I dressed up Honey in this cute bandana. She seems to like it. She stares at herself a lot in the mirror. I think she things she’s pretty…..i think she’s right.
The sugar snap peas are have so much flowers coming up. This is the first year growing them and definitely not the last. I bought the seeds from ECHO seedbank. Thier goal is to serve as a resource for development workers who wish to experiment with underutilized crops as they work to improve the lives of the poor. They maintain a collection of hard-to-find seeds that thrive under the often difficult growing conditions of the tropics and sub-tropics. It is their hope that these seeds will be used to evaluate new species that may help alleviate hunger, improve the soil, and produce income in areas where agriculture is difficult.
I bought a few more seeds from them, including Moringa and some Australian lettuce that do well in the heat.
This bak choy did so much better than the other variety that I had. I will be replanting this again. These are great in stir fries and soups.
The lime tree is doing really well. I planted it in a huge pot with another lime tree that I bought a few years ago. I shouldn’t have done that because 2 lime trees will definitely not fit in this pot. I recently took the older tree and will be giving it away to a friend and keeping the newer one (thanks to Alica, as a housewarming present), and repositioning it in the pot.
I recently yanked out the nasturtium plant that was getting out of hand in my Bay Laurel pot. I think I will be planting nasturtiums at the front of the house. These plants are self seeding and pop up year after year.
What’s flowering up in your garden?
