I just updated the What’s Growing? page and didn’t realize how many fruit trees we have until I listed them all down. Below is the list so far, not even including all the grafts that I have made.
I had a busy weekend and I’m so tired. This morning my Mom and I went to my Grandma’s (and Uncle and Aunties) where I helped paint their picket fence and garage.
Before we left, I took these shots.
Our Tropic White Guava has finally started to blossom. Hopefully we’ll get guava fruit soon.
Sometimes I feel like an idiot… I planted a sunflower bed ( pic ) back in June 13. Well… The sunflower seedlings I transplanted were Zinnias!!!!… and now they are starting to bloom. Luckily, there were some bare spots where I planted sunflower seeds… so we should still get some sunflowers.
Sunflower… err… Zinnia/Sunflower bed

Early this morning, I harvested my first cucumbers and eggplant. The huge cucumber in the photo is labeled as Yellow Submarine Cucumber. It hasn’t turned yellow as the tag shows, but that thing is 10 inches, but the tag says 8 inches, so I decided to go ahead and harvest it.

The Sweet 100 Tomatoes are really to harvest, but I’ll do that tomorrow.
Our pruning shears are a bit dull, so I sharped them with a sharpening stone, and they work so much better. I don’t think they ever have been sharpened.
I repotted the Avocado that I “discovered” we had (see yesterday’s post). My mom kindly gave the plant to me :)
I took some pictures around the garden…
