Scarlet Runner Beans in their full glory
Self seeded Nappa Cabbage sprouting like crazy!
Patty Pan squash growing in the cradle of vetch, mums beginning to bloom
Trying my hand at growing water chestnuts. I started with grocery store packaged water chestnuts. Only 2 survived. It probably had to do with the winter weather. Let's hope these thrive over the summer and produce some corms! On the right is Oxalis Tuberosum, edible oca. It looks just like clovers, doesn't it? The tubers are edible, although I've only had a few tubers so I haven't eaten any yet.
Chard towering over us ready to set seed! The right side are Elephant Head Amaranth (we eat the leaves), Shiso(perilla) and in the backdrop large leaves of edible Burdock we're hoping to let seed.
Salmon colored Alstroemeria
In the foreground, right side burdock, left side edible canna
Mexican Primose on left, Dioscorea Batata on the right in it's second year.
Fennel about to flower
Kabocha pumpkin: literally in nearly finished compost (the black frame is the compost bin)
The new raised bed waiting to be dug in. On the right, we have Peppers and Potatoes
Planted most of the Tomatoes...we have 22 plants in all this year. On the right, Lettuces going to seed, sweet potatoes planted and starting to gear up it's vine growth. Fennel also flowering to set seed.
