Happy Healthy Earth Day

I love love love my garden and all of the delights I receive from it.  Here's to the Earth...treat it well

Check out my Flickr page for more of our garden

little mango's growing
We have 4 mango tree's.  One from seed via our compost pile.
I have failed the last three years with watermelon, so this year I decided to grow them in pots and so far so good.
Lettuce in pots keep the bugs away.
This crazy wonderful tree mass produces apricots, way too many for us to eat and dry.
Organic tomatoes a difficult find 
find all you want they will be happy inside

One of my favorite rose bushes
Swiss chard, lemon grass and a rose bush - Lemon grass I found impossible to grow from seed.  No seeds needed, woohoo, purchase some at your local grocery store and stick them in some water near a window and change the water every other day.  When roots appear and grow to about an inch, transplant into your garden.
Apple blossoms
Apple applelies
Eat all you want
They will be pink inside but red on the top!
