Went out to do some sprinkler work this am – #farmlife and found that the Carlos tree had really brought us some presents. Its out of sync with the rest of the trees, but thats ok.

Psidium cattleyanum, commonly known as Cattley guavastrawberry guava or cherry guava, is a small tree (2–6 m tall) in the Myrtaceae (myrtle) family. The species is named in honour of English horticulturist William Cattley. Its genus name Psidium comes from the Latin psidion, or “armlet.” The red-fruited variety, P. cattleyanum var. cattleyanum, is commonly known as purple guava, red cattley guava, red strawberry guava and red cherry guava.

Okinawa spinach

This attractive perennial herb (Gynura crepioides) has half purple, half dark green leaves that make a delicious addition to salads, or can be cooked as a potherb. It propagates well from cuttings, that you must take before winter as the plant will not survive a freeze. Rooting the cutting in water before planting so that it forms good roots improves results.

As with most cuttings, remove all but the top few leaves of a cutting to reduce water loss until it grows new roots. Rooting is very slow in cold weather.

Okinawa lettuce can be used in landscaping as a groundcover in full sun (with enough water) or it does well in partial shade. It needs little, but does appreciate some soil amending/fertilizing.

It can be cooked like spinach – but don’t overcook it as it can become unpleasantly slimy.

Dumped and cleaned things up this weekend. It was nice to get back out and get my hands dirty.   Pulled and dumped everything, even a few still producing plants, but it was time to go…

 

Grapes are coming along, hopefully I can keep the deer away for a while

Dedicated an entire day to cleaning and moving things to a better location.  Tossed out a LOT of stuff that just needed to go.  Got the worm farm back to 100% production, and have started producing the “worm tea” for the plants.

Planted lots of peppers, tomatoes, turnips, watermelons, pumpkins, and okra.  We’ll see how it all does.  The grapes seem to like the warmer weather, and have really taken off.  Right now, I’m just focusing on bringing back to life what I’ve ignored to long.

Working on a new watering plan, but that will come in the future.
