I love gardening. Here are some shots I’ve taken over the last few years of things in my garden. First up are bell pepper blooms (yes, that’s an ant on it 😂) and fruit:
McMahon’s Texas Bird hot peppers – they are like little balls of fire!
I’ve never had a ghost pepper before; I’ve been told it’s hotter than habanero peppers. It just turned red (and I haven’t even planted it yet!) and I’m excited to see what it’s like!
The blueberries are slowly ripening:
Eggplant bloom (the white stuff on the stalk is some insecticide; I had problems with someone other than me eating my eggplant) and fruit:
Tomatillo Gigante Verde blooms (Spanish giant green tomatillos; they are great for salsa! I’m not growing them this year; I grew them a couple of years ago and still have sealed jars of salsa left 😂):
Tomato blooms and not yet ripe fruit:
Squash blooms (with a bonus moth!):
My plants this year are coming along. I already have eggplant, tomatoes and peppers slowly growing on the plants. 😍 Unfortunately, when I was weeding, I came across some poison oak… but I’m trying to think of the fruits and veggies I get to pick in the fall and how it will be worth the itching I have now! No pain, no gain, right? 😂
