It’s been quite a while since I posted here, and because this blog was listed in the Online Newsletter for Evergreen SGV (evergreensgv.org), I figure I’d better have something more recent than four months ago.
We’ve moved across town, and one of the numerous benefits of this new house is that we have a garden again!!!
By far the best looking plant of the bunch thus far is our pumpkin. This plant came from seeds that fell out of a decomposing pumpkin in our compost pile from last halloween. Maybe we'll have homegrown jack-o-lanterns this year!
One of those Basil plants from Trader Joe's that had all but whithered away and died as I put it into the ground; it has made an amazing comeback!
One of the beans that was transplanted from the other house. It's one of the few holdovers.
We reassembled our compost bin, and our landlords left their old one! Two bins, twice the compost! Wahoo!
Our little garden helper. Is he wearing pants? Maybe. Maybe not.
Attempt #4 by our Meyer Lemon tree to create fruit. We'll see what happens.
That’s it for now. We’ll keep you posted on how the garden is coming along. If you’re local, and you want a pumpkin, we’ll be happy to distribute if we get any!
