We have several persimmon trees, this one is one of the biggest trees and bears the most fruit this year. I picked a bag full this morning and it tasted so good freshly picked.
It has been so long since I last blogged here and when checking my blogroll, I see that a few bloggers have taken a long break as well. To be honest, it look me a while to figure out how to post photo and feel like a newbie here. This is an Epi plant from… Continue reading First bloom in 10 years
I didn't have as much time to work in the garden in the last few weeks and the weeds are growing a lot faster than I can pull it. The cucumbers are coming along and I need to thin out the leaves so it wouldn't be so thick. I absolutely love fresh cucumbers and my… Continue reading First Cucumbers Harvest
Lots of work and progress in the garden this week; it's only been a week and things start to look very different. The weather is dry in our area, we only had 1 short shower last week.

The Chayote fruits are from last year's garden, I keep them in the garage sitting on top of the potting dirt. They are ready to… Continue reading Seeds
Fortunate that the weather is nice tonight and I'm able to see the Lunar Eclipse or Super Blood Wolf Moon from my backyard.

January 13, 2019 we were expecting snow in our area. The city salted the roads several days back and I was hoping to get several inches of snow. We lost our power last night and it came back early morning. I went back to sleep and woke up again to find that we didn't have… Continue reading Ice
I didn't make a new year resolution last year but my goal was to exercise almost every day and I was able to stick to it and I'm very happy with the progress. It becomes a new lifestyle and hopes to carry this over to next year. I'm taking it one year at a time.… Continue reading Year In Review 2018
