Whats new in the garden
The peppers are happily growing nicely.
Baby Marigolds, saved from the nicer varieties at the gardens.
The baby tomatoes are growing nicely.
A peek in the greenhouse.
This is a lovely Chinese artichoke, or chorogi, or knotroot,artichoke betony, or crosne . I got a few from Chris and we had a nice evening trading plants and green seeds. I am very excited to grow these and cook them!
They look like spiral shells to me.
By my finger is a red occa tuber. I planted them in my big black pots. A recent trade was very informative and I got some seed variety and new interesting plants. I also received some white occa which also went into a very large tree pot.
