This shows the tomato plant at the end of that row. Early Girl and we’ve already eaten several off this plant with more coming in. Notice the draperies helping keep the temperatures moderated. That is an Amaryllis up on the table. Bloomed beautifully a month or so ago.
geraniums on the table and under, as well as two pots with ginger tubers and what ever is munching, keeps clipping the tops off the ginger as soon as it shows. in front of that are two zucchini plants. the foremost has given us some nice fruit but is now being eaten also. down low on the left is a pot of sweetgrass. keeps the greenhouse smelling heavenly. in the white pot is an almond seedling. it was lower and what ever is eating clipped the top right off it! below that, out of sight, is an agave that I found uprooted on the street. the Javelina pulled it out of somewhere and munched on it heavily. the roots were dried out. Have potted it up and we’ll see!! not showing the green beans as they’ve been heavily munched also. so much for that experiment.
This is what is fast becoming the fruit area. starting to the right and going counter clockwise; onion bulbules right in the front center ish, moving to the right are two rhubarb, a grape, a blueberry that is just barely hanging in, another grape, a nectarine bush, blackberry, fig (see two fruit starting on that). This is the area I might bring the boysenberry into.
along the side of the house in the new raised planter some bush beans. If you look closely you will see some of these got sunburned while we were away this past weekend. the mesh around the growing area is to try to dissuade little munching critters.
