The Garden Blooms

The gardening is going really well. What can I say? Everything grows in Kenya! I have written prior posts about trying my hand at not killing plants and about how I stepped things up after moving to the new house. I am happy to report that the gardening efforts are literally bearing fruit.

There are two types of passion fruit growing and bearing fruit that is already starting to ripen. There are a couple small orange trees that need more time but in another year should bear fruit. There’s a mango tree (also small) that should start to produce fruit by the end of this year. And I didn’t kill any of these! Yay!

In addition, the vegetables are coming along quite nicely. It’s still early, but it’s going well. I am very hopeful.

In addition to the vegetables and fruit, the flowers are doing very well. The roses and hydrangeas are doing great and survived the drought. There are tons of other flowers as well.

 

 

The succulents are also doing really great. Lazurus, the aloe that came back from the dead is now planted in the ground.

And, because everything really does grow in Kenya…this little guy just sort of appeared in a pot.

He now has his own proper, little pot and is out on the balcony with his friends.
