A Tiny Bit of Morning Garden Bounty

20150830_062113A bit of what came out of the garden this morning. Back left, Zapotec Tomato, a “ruffled” tomato from Mexico. Back right, Green Zebra, a green tomato with darker green stripes. Next row, left, Pablano Pepper, tiny unnamed sugar tomatoes, a partially dried Pimento Pepper, Marmande tomato from France, Spanish Spice Pepper (from Spain, of course!) Then two tiny pimento style peppers from Germany, unnamed heirloom, and a green tomatillo still in the husk.20150824_201830

Koda decided to pull his Taz slipper over beside his bowl and take a nap after breakfast. . .

And now he is “helping” me work.

One lousy carrot. The pups and I love fresh carrots, and of a full packet, only 1 came up! will have to plant more. sigh. these weren’t cheap either, a mixed bag of heirlooms from several countries – mixed colours. what do you want to be this one is a plain old orange?

the photo isn’t very clear, but from the left, my mango tree is doing well, and that is spicy oregano in the ot with it. moving left front two cherry trees and an apricot, and behind the two avocados are doing well, and that fan shaped plant is an iris

starting a new bed. you can see the cardboard on the bottom, and those are tree limbs and bark, and grass cuttings I am pouring in. a couple more wheelbarrow loads and i will be able to start covering it with manure and dirt. this bed will be for flower seeds and bulbs I will plant in the fall for spring growth.
