Wow, looks awesome, Ronin! With rain expected this weekend, that grass will really take off. I need to overseed my grass, with zoomies and their rough housing, I'm seeing chunks flying in the air each day, haha

we had a broken sprinkle line under the garden. and so began the great garden excavation.

my necie and nephew helped me dig it up on weekends. Smile


after a few days of digging we found the lines but we had to dig one more foot lower.


by the end of April we started putting the wire back in.


we move our strawberry patch into some pots.




and planted some hula berries.


the cherries are staying on the tree this time bounce


not to sure if the pomegranate will have some this year but i hope we at lest have one.


the strawberries are really liking the pots we put them in.


pistachio tees have their fist flowers.

the mango has some fruit growing not to sure if they will stay.


the cherries have made it so far we should have a few to share.


the pineapple guava has some flowers but not sure if it will fruit this year.


this cactus fruit have been growing on it since last year.


this year we have a lot of cactus fruit growing. we kept the new winter growth and those grew the fruit.

I have one of those (I call it a medusa cactus) but mine has never bloomed. Assume need more sun than what it's getting. didn't know it could have such pretty flowers. My prickly pears are blooming right now. Has a bumper crop of blooms this year so might be worth taking the fruit off it. The early heat has really set my garden back. didn't hardly get to put in any cool weather crops. I have tomatoes already on though. Your stuff looks like it's doing really well.

i didn't know the name of the that one we got that from my aunt. we have it in the partial shade but the dry heat keeps it warm in the summer. thanks, we were a bit late in starting the garden this year due to the sprinkle line braking.

this was back in June

our pumpkin and the zucchini are doing really well.


the tomatoes are growing fast and the asparagus look more like dill  Laughing . and the cabbage is growing nicely, i just hope the cricket do eat it.


we also put in some green tomatoes and onions. we also moved the raspberry next to the onions.


after we put in most of the plants in.

then some other plants around the yard.

plums this time Leo didn't bury them Laughing


and our shade plant i don't remember what it was called. but we soak the leafs with a cinnamon stick for a few hours and blend it up. then add water and sugar to taste to make a green drink out of it.




the blue berries did really well this year we got almost a lbs of them bounce .


the bananas survived the winter with minimal damage and are growing like weeds.




so many peaches this year


we got Cactus fruit growing need to look up the cactus fruit juice recipe.

Enjoyed your nature photos!
And seeing that grass grow in, that's really inspiring!

Ours is horrible (mostly crabgrass/clover) and I don't even have the excuse that our dog digs!
( Rumo is very polite - he only digs in the loose dirt under our deck. )

Your garden is doing awesome, Ronin!!! My strawberry plants I planted just before the intense heat hit. They got FRIED Sad your garden inspires me to plant some fruiting things, like a cherry tree, I think that's awesome.

thanks, gardening for warm weather plants is almost over, but we're thinking of trying to grow cold weather plants this year. just not sure when i should start.
our cabbage got eaten by crickets Sad but it was cool that it grew.

sorry to hear about your strawberries, we thought that would happen to the ones we up rooted into the pots, but we got lucky.

the pumpkins are getting really big.


this one is hanging off the bamboo box, we need to find something to support its weight.


we are at last seeing some green tomatoes developing.


the asparagus till looks a bit like a twig Laughing i hope it grows bigger next year.


the watermelon is still growing but not sure if it will have any before it gets to cold.


the banana plants have done amazing this year but they have not flowered yet. i hope the will flower next year.

the pumpkins got some bumps on them, we we weren't sure which type they were but it looks like they are Marina Di Chioggia.


it survived getting stepped on about 3 times and then transplanted.


the green tomatoes are growing so well.


our little turkey fig tree, we didn't think it would have any fruit this year but so happy it did.


the cherry tomatoes are finally growing some tomatoes.


the last picture of the cabbage before the crickets eat it.






the cactus had so many fruits this year.



we were so excited that the plants had veggies growing on them we decided to weight them just for fun.

we eventually ate the peaches and froze some for later. we have eaten most of the squashes Laughing , and the figs as they ripen. but the tomatoes are slow growing still they just stated to ripen and turn red, and the green one have started to turn purple.
Laughing if we didn't have the fence up i think Leo would do the same, he loves his squash.

Your pumpkin is awesome! Your climate must be a little different than mine, when it gets as hot as it's been, it usually "cooks" the tomato plants and ruins the skin on the tomatoes. This year I didn't plant a garden here, last few years rats from the canyon came up and stole most all my tomatoes, BUT, at the hotel where I work, a garden was planted, the chefs use mostly the foilage instead of the vegetables themselves, and we are allowed to take what we want so I had some amazing vegetables this year, haha. Wish I had thought to atleast plant pumpkin here at home though, I always love when I start getting some.

Awesome garden Ronin! Peaches look so delicious!

thanks, we didn't think i would get so big  Laughing . yeah when its hot out we worry about them wilting, sometimes they look all droopy and floppy but we got lucky this year it wasn't as hot at it normally is. we got like 4 good size pumpkins that we shared with my auntie and saved some seed for next year.
that is so cool that they allow you to have veggies form their garden Smile .
we got a rat out in the back yard, this year since there is constructions going on in an empty lot, and i think its been steeling the tomatoes and eating the peaches. i think scratch  we have captured about 2 of them.
and we took it out to the fields to release her. i gave her some bread to eat before letting her go free.

Dang, that's a big rat! Enjoyed a lot of tomatoes and peaches, LOLOL. Last year I was able to get most of my tomatoes but the year before, rats stole every single one of them. I wasn't as nice as you though with trapping and releasing.
