Mom's Mimosa Tree
WHAT AM I UP TO?
and drying some home grown Oregano...this is one of my favorite herbs to grow even the squirrels don't bother it! The deer neither...it's the perfect herb..
I packed this jar with Jalapeno peppers fresh off the plant added vinegar and a sprinkle of sugar...in a couple weeks I will have a hot vinegar splash which goes well with cooked greens of all kinds,
WHAT'S GROWING and WHATS NOT?
More goodies from the garden pots, but tomato is so obviously missing! I have some small green ones but nothing to pick! One plant is way tall over my head and it has flowers and tiny pin head size tomato...I don't think it's going to produce much.
The Japanese Eggplant is trying to give me more fruit this is #5 some critter ripped the last 4 up while they were still small...I put screen over the top an attempt to save this one...Wish me luck..
I keep them in some water till time to cook
