The run of rainy days (and nights!) we just went through are beginning to pay off...the garden is grateful!
The baby bok-choy plants are growing new leaves and filling out
The red hot Hawaiian Chile peppers are just beginning to show some blush
All three Hawaiian Currant tomatoes are full of tiny tomatoes and still blooming like crazy! These tomatoes are no bigger than your thumbnail...and so sweet and juicy!
Both of the Roma tomatoes are also loaded! Do you notice the black plastic pot inserted into the ground in the middle of the tomato cage? We fill it with our compost combination and fill with water (when it doesn't rain) so that the nutrients leach out to the roots through holes we poke on the sides and bottom of the pot. Looks like I need to do some weeding!
The nasties are being their sassy selves...
Manoa lettuce is beginning to bolt...need to harvest it all today...the portulaca just planted along the stepping stones a couple of days ago are already perked up and growing..amazing!
This is the area parallel to the pig trough where the Bok-choy and Hawaiian currant tomatoes are planted. I will be filling the empty spaces in the cement blocks with soil and probably plant chives and onion sets in them.
This mint is so exuberant, it is outgrowing its pot...Time to take cuttings and start some in another area where it can just grow as much as it wants!
These are miniature pineapples. They never grow bigger than this...about 4 inches total from tip of the 'leaves' to the base...used mainly as ornamental plants as there is not much to them, but they're also wonderful as garnishes on a dish or in table flower arrangements. This little one has 3 more pups growing from the base and the other one in the background has 3 more...so from these two little pineapples I can grow 8 more plants in the future, by planting the pups and the tops of these.
