i cut the fig and we shared it, my niece dose figs so just cut into 4 peaces. we got lucky with our tomatoes; the shadow of the fence shads them in the afternoon.

are garden usually starts to die down around late August to early to mid November. since its been warmer then last year the tomatoes are still going Laughing and the kale is growing really nice too, but most of the fruit trees and bell pepper plants have almost finish. we got about four guava fruits i need to get a good picture of them soon. oh, my mom passion fruit plant has one fruit growing. and the chayote vine has lost of fruits on it this year but no super spiky ones yet.

wow, cactus fruit lemonade that sounds tasty. i need to find a recipe to make some next year if we have lots of fruit again. i cut them and roll them on the grass to get all the thorns out. then you cut the top an bottom off and cut down middle and peal it open using tongs. you unroll it as you peal. i usually just peal and eat them.

we got a few guavas growing under the front porch and they are very good tasting and they smell really good.

we still have a few chills plants still growing.




3 out of 6 kale plants survived hehe. i guess the slugs got them. i sprinkled food grade daiotatious earth on the ground and it got ride of them.

some of the flowing trees in the back yard.


more flowers in the yard.




























we eventually got the garden cleaned up and planted but the snails got some of the plant and the weather was to hot after we planted and some of them didn't make it. so i replanted the ones that died.

Looks good, Ronin. My tomatoes are baby seedlings with their first true leaves, still under lights. And the way the weather is going, might drown when played out in a few weeks.

Wow, you have quite the garden going on! Love that yellow rose with red splotches. I planted a peach tree a few months ago, it's starting to get leaves. My tomatoes I just got in the ground last weekend so not anywhere near where yours are, lol. Your garden looks great!

I try every year to grow eggplant from seed and they always give me trouble. It's my problem child. That and the birds took all my blueberries. I've never had them take them all.

Did you order your sunshade or just find it in a store? I've been thinking about getting some shade cloth but get a little frazzled when I get to trying to decide what percents sun block I want to do. Been thinking about hitting the fabric store and just making something.

Wow, your garden is doing awesome! I picked my first two tomatoes today Smile forget the variety but they look a lot like Romas. How old is your peach tree? I recently planted one, it's lost all its leaves. Not sure if it's a water issue, or soil or...being peed on (not by me, lol) Kohdi seems to think it's a pee stick put there by me to mark where he is to pee Rolling Eyes

Flowers are really pretty. Hard to judge what size they are but if they're not as big as they look in the pics, they look like a flower I have, not sure what it's called but I remember someone in here calling them Stargazers or something like that.

Garden looks great Ronin

we got the sunshade fabric at the local hardware store and just shade the length of the garden.it was called Easy Gardener Residential Shade Fabric they sell it by the foot. we got about 20 feet. it still let light in but its not as strong.

our peach tree is about 3 years old. i think its the shock of the plant been moved to a new spot and someone peepee on it hehehe. you can give it a bit of extra water to help. we usually have to do that with the apple tree the is in a pot since Leo likes to pee it.

Everything looks so beautiful, Ronin. I have one of those fern things too, I never planted it, just showed up and grows thru an evergreen on the side of my driveway. Does yours have little thorns on it? Mine does.

Wow! You have a lovely and a delicious garden. I am so jealous! I can't wait until we have our own place with a yard and get to do all the things you do. Plus also have space for 'Kota and Kuky to roam around.

the hard part is balancing out space for leo to run and the plants and the comprise between the my mom. brother and me.
