So far the weather here has been great. It’s already June, yet we have not had extreme heat – thank goodness! So, this month, I am featuring some “projects” as well as my beautiful passion fruit:
I planted Kyoho, and American concord grapes last season. It grew to the height of the trellis. This season, I am supposed to let two vines spread. Then next year I can allow multiple vines to grow and fruit – I’m half way there! As for the blueberries, I initially planted them in the ground, and they did not thrive. Last season with the advice of my neighbor, I planted them in containers. I am actually getting fruit now – yay! And, last but not least, my passion fruit plant. I think it must be the hardiest plant in my garden. It has survived a freeze in the past, and recently survived being strangled by our ever growing banana trees. These beautiful flowers turn into the most aromatic and delicious fruit – can’t wait!
