  1. Hi Amanda, Wow! You do have an interesting and colorful harvest. Right now I only get cherry tomatoes, chillies and papayas.

  2. Isn't the thrill of a harvest just the best feeling? I love the variety of eggplants.

  3. Wow! Papayas. That sounds like a great salsa combo! YUM!

    The eggplants are Bianca and Gretel eggplants and they were from my mom's garden. He garden buddy, Sharon started them by seed I believe.

    Where are you both located?

  4. I'm in Australia. Where I live we can grow things all year round but the crops change with the seasons.

  5. Wow! Australia! I've heard it is beautiful there. I would love to visit someday. It sounds similar to Los Angeles, CA. Here too, we can grow year around, changing with the seasons. I usually have a FALL/WINTER garden, a WINTER/SPRING garden and a SUMMER garden. So, usually 3 different planting and harvest times.

    I am still trying to maneuver through Blotanical, so I will look up your blog. Would love to see what you're doing.

    Happy Harvesting! :)

  6. Missy...I just checked out your blog! BEAUTIFUL!! I tried commenting on a few posts, but I was unfortunately unsuccessful...not sure why?! I need to try again. BUT, I wanted to say that I LOVE you piece on worm composting. I have the very same worm compost bin and I love it! I was also thinking about doing a post on it, in order to inform others about it. So glad to see you've done that! :)
