A little update on my dad’s garden for my sisters. First, let’s start with my second sister’s water lily, it was in bloom on Saturday. I missed the ones that bloomed the Sunday before, she called me to see if I wanted to go over and take some pictures but I wasn’t feeling well, I came down with a cold from being out in the rain on Saturday at the Dragon Boat Race.
Her fish pond.
Her fish would come up and open their mouths when it’s feeding time. She has several huge Koi fish and had someone to offer her as much as $200 for them, but she turned it down.
My dad’s corn, they look very healthy.
String beans, he seems to have lots of bugs problem. I’ve heard that Marigold flowers help keep these bugs away, and grew some in my flower raised bed, and I think my second sister is planting some in his garden area for him.
His Thai eggplants are not doing well this year, I think it must be in the soil, he mulched the bottom of his raised beds this time.
The chili peppers are doing much better comparing to last week.
He planted quiet a bit of lemongrass.
His Pomegranate tree, hopefully it’ll bear fruit this year.
The crabapple is doing well this year, he went out and covered the tree during the last frost that we had.
It threatened to rain the whole time while I was out there taking pictures.
One of these baby banana plants is mine, but I’ve not moved it to my garden yet.
