Progress Report

Tonight my project, aside from weeding the area in front of the raised bed, was potting some of the plants that I've gotten in the last couple of days.

I got a couple of strawberry plants today. They are two different kinds, so that I can see which one seems to work better. One already has a bunch of berries on it.

I've never had luck with strawberries before, so we'll see how it goes.

I potted the Meyer Lemon (seen with the strawberries)...

...and the Guava (seen with my Bird of Paradise, that doesn't have a place in my yard yet).

I potted Lemon Thyme with my Eggplant.

The pepper appears about ready to bloom.

I put Basil with my tomato.

My little mangoes continue to grow. This is the largest one that I found.

I noticed that my orange tree is looking pretty peaked.

I wonder whether it is the cold weather (I think I left it out during the last cold snap), or if it just needs a good fertilization?

I didn't get to the other stuff (like the Passion Flower and Raspberry, nor get the cauliflower split up into two pots). Next time.
