I planted this Pomegranate bush last year. Since then it has more than tripled in size, despite the fact that I totally neglected to water it over the scorching summer months. I have the Florida summer thunderstorms to thank for its survival. It hasn’t bloomed yet but I read that it takes anywhere from 1 to 2 ½ years for a new bush to bloom and then another 5 to 7 months for the fruit to ripen. I wish I could speed things up…but since that’s impossible to do I guess I will just have to be patient and wait.

My Fall Garden

Fall is hear...and that means its time to start my veggie garden again. Last year only my cucumbers and tomatoes did well...but that's because I planted the more delicate veggies too early and the blazing summer sun fried them all up. This year I waited until mid October to plant the carrots, radishes, lettuce, peas, kohlrabi and spinach...hopefully I will have something yummy to show for it :)

I'm Back :)

Hmmmmmmm there must be something about October that puts me in the mood for blogging :) It was last October that I first started this blog....only to eventually stop archiving the daily events of my family...I think the pressure of feeling like I needed to post a picture for every day got to me, so I gave up completely. But I'm going to give it another go....this time instead of a "daily" blog I do my best to post at least once a week. Hopefully I can stick with it this year :)
