Victory Garden: Tomatoes, rosemary, thai and sweet basil, golden chard, cilantro, purslane, lettuce, and compost in the corner of our porch
Our basil, mint, cilantro window box will hopefully provide all the herbs we need.
Picking blackberries at Lyons Farm just outside of Durham
Our first tomatoes are coming along. They're really far behind because of the move but still fun to grow
Golden Chard starting to come in nicely, its supposed to survive the NC winter too!
Our Sweet Basil is just starting to come up - it already smells great
Wild Purslane is doing well in its transition from weed to vegetable
The Compost Pile: covered with top soil and equipped with a fly trap to keep the fruit flys down
Impending doom for these flies
Hoisted by its own petard, this cilantro seedling is impaired by its own seed case
Thanks Murch for the mexican lime tree, awesome addition to the family
Pickly Pear cactus, another addition to the family
Our first sprouts
Any idea what flower this is?
Towards the end of the season but there are still plenty of beautiful blackberries at Lyon Farms
Any idea what this fruit is? Its a huge old tree with these knoby green fruits
The tomato field is so big it can't all fit in this picture
I've never seen so much, such healthy looking purslane, the tomato field was overrun with it.
So many tomatos they litter the ground everywhere
One dollar per pound, pick your own at Lyon Farms
Benefit of SEEDS, too far spoiled for market but fine to eat. The mushrooms have finally arrived!
Leucocoprinus birnbaumii in our rosemary pot, what a nice surprise
Trumpet flower and one of those other things
Tons of these are being born in the compost, sucks have a screened porch
Sadly this guy is on his last wings, I found him outside the apartment this morning
Our graden plot at SEEDS. Lambs Quarter, assorted chilis, golden chard, heritage tomatoes, purslane, giant cabbage, wild and egyptian walking onions
One of the first bounties of the garden this year. Lambs quarter and swiss chard
overcrowded is an understatement. These two plots our in our charge for the next year
From the other side: butternut squash, onions, tomato, and zinnias are most prominent
