Blackberry Season!


It is harvest time! We've been harvesting nearly 2 cups a day from our single bush. Matt bought a net meant for ponds to cover the bush and it worked better than the tree/bush net we had last year at keeping out birds.

Figs are growing on our new, baby fig tree.

Figs are growing on the tiny (under 2 ft) fig tree that we planted this May. Very surprising.

In bloom!

The front yard is blooming

The front yard is looking good! This was tiny (and pink!) last year but it has really grown and is now sort of pinky-purple.
