We got a good start to pulling dead leaves from the tomato plants, and we pulled out the old lettuce, radish, and onion plants. Then we filled in the garden with four bags of new dirt and layered in a bag of cow manure and some hydrated lime. As you can see, the back yard needs to be mowed - again! - because it's actually been raining here almost every day:
Under the shade canopy, you can see that three pepper plants and a stevia plant survived the clean-up:
Here are two sweet potato vines that we transplanted from water cups over the kitchen sink:
We have cooked sweet potato leaves in a stir-fry, and they get gummy like okra, although they are supposed to be very nutritious. I suppose we will have to try that again if these vines grow well in our garden.
I have a friend who has started some seeds from a loquat tree. Once we figure out where to put one in our yard, we will adopt one of her plants. I prefer to grow plants that can be eaten. I'm all for Free Food!
