It’s been a good few days in the garden…the passion fruit is just starting to blossom! I’m counting on a good harvest this year. I just love this flower. It’s so unusual–almost alien like! But the fruit! It is divine!
Sad to report that the gophers scored significant points this week. 2 good sized lupins fell prey to the varmints! I re-set the traps but they outsmarted me! The traps were sprung with not a corpse in sight! Now I’m really mad!
Our baby mission fig tree has finally produced some leaves! Again, very hopeful for a good supply of fruit this year.
The popcorn seed that I obtained at the Santa Barbara Seed Swap is starting to emerge! Unfortunately the heirloom tomato seeds that I tried to save from last years crop is not showing any evidence of life…
Finally…combining gardening and cooking (2 of my great loves!) I made the first fresh guacamole of the year using avocados from our haas trees, cilantro from the garden, limes from the neighbor…mucho tasty!
How are your gardens progressing? Success? Opportunities to learn from? Spring vegetable recipes? Looking forward to hearing ALL about it!
