Garden Progress

Aside from working behind the shed, as I mentioned earlier, we've gotten some other work done in the garden.

I finally planted the hibiscus that I got on clearance for $5.

This is monumental, because it is the first thing that I have planted in my garden, and it is one of the only things that I have ever planted in my life.

Woodrow also helped me by pruning the dead debris from the banana trees and the freeze-damaged chenille plant.

We got most of the raised garden bed cleared out.

Just as a reminder, this is what it looked like when I moved in.

I also split the cauliflower between two pots.

It's probably still way too many cauliflower in a pot, but I will probably transplant some into the garden bed once it's ready.

My mangoes are still growing.

To give some perspective, this was the same mango a week before.

My sweet yellow pepper has bloomed.

It appears that my eggplant is about to bloom.

My tomatoes are beginning to turn red.

The lemon still has tons of beautiful blooms waiting to open, and lots of fruit ripening.

The blackberry bush still has fruit growing and ripening.


So the gardening goes on...
