Yes, that's Mom climbing the Guava tree... she's 63 and still climbing trees!
Green Grapes have flower buds!
Broad beans getting thicker.
Beautiful Sage flowering
Got more seeds~! The unusual seeds I'm trying NEW this year are the Yard Long Oriental Wonder Beans, Short Burdock root called "Salada Musume" and Toraji (Balloon Flower) Which the roots are eaten in Korea and China. I'm always on a lookout for beautiful plants that also serve an edible purpouse, so I love the Balloon Flower!
Lupini Beans! Here they're soaking for a few days. Lupinis are eaten in the Mediterranean regions as a snack with beer. I'm not really a big beer drinker, but no matter. They have pretty white flowers AND fix nitrogen into the soil AND they produce an edible bean! What more can you want? They DO need soaking with several changes of water to ensure that the alkaloids(toxins) are leached out. Changing the water after boiling them is important too. Yes, tedious crop, but great Front Garden "ninja" style plant that looks pretty but does something besides just that. They are related to the wild Lupines here in CA.
