And so it grows!

The garden continues to entertain me.


Our mango tree is trying to produce fruit.

You need to let it flower or it will just keep trying and that takes away energy for growth.


The peach tree is doing much better.

We’ll try grafting again next spring, but we won’t get any plums from the graft  till at least 2011.


We planted some beans in the ground and some Blue Inca Corn that they can grow onto if they run out of trellis.


Our tomatoes are going great guns.


The sapote got a little frazzled in the heat, yet we have it in the ground now and it has some new growth.


The passion fruit vine is moving slower than expected, but “Oh well”.


Our Keffir Lime is kicking off, don’t know if we should let it fruit yet or hold off till next year.


The apple tree is doing fine.


The veggie patch is booming.


And now for some random flowers.


I had wanted to redo our baskets this year, we inherited some old ones, but without redoing the automatic watering system, baskets are a little impractical for a short ass like me. None the less here they are in all their wild abandon.
