I had a bunch of wildflower seeds so I decided to spread them around in the new Moringa/Pigeon Pea/Roselle garden area. I'm hoping something will take!
A few weeks ago I bought a small sized papaya at the grocery store, let it get over ripe, and planted seeds around the yard, front and back. While I was weeding, before planting the flower seeds, I came across a few sprouts that were "different", and realized they were the papaya! Yay!
There are 4 pesky weeds/saplings I constantly battle - false poinciana, tropical almond, umbrella tree and shepherds needle. There are a few others, but these are the ones that plague my gardens the most.
I got on a role and weeded the fruit and herb area. Only a few herbs have survived - lemon grass, rosemary and mint. They are clearly the winners in the SW Florida summer heat.
The bananas are coming along nicely.
My tree is still quite short so I assumed it was unhappy.
My lemon grass is taller!
Check out these puppies! 3 total. You can only see one in this picture.
I pulled all the tomatoes and dumped all the pots lying around that were full of weeds. I have a knack for growing weeds...
It was a good morning, for once. Hot as blazes but worth the sweat and toil.
I have okra, ivy gourd and korean melon to plant tomorrow.
