Orange Lilies, Vincas and Baby Zucchini 

My friend E, who lives in The States, recently mailed me some lily bulbs and Vinca seeds! My sister SAL mailed us some black beauty zucchini seeds as well! Since both items arrived with our neighbor, who recently returned from The States, on Monday, I thought I’d get them all into the ground together.  Here is a picture of the spot in which I planted them.

I’m excited to see a few days later some green shoots are popping up from the lilies.

 Can’t wait to see the other plants pop up too!
Here are some of the other plants along the wharf:

The banana forest, herb and salad garden and flower garden area.

Our banana forest is producing another bunch of bananas 🍌! 

Here are some of the plants from the salad & herb garden:

Mint

Sweet Marjoram

Red striped amaranth (an edible salad leaf, eaten raw or cooked)

Seedlings of Red above 

Katuk (edible salad, raw or cooked)

Mexican Oregano 

Rosemary 🌹 

Acorn Squash

Lemon Guava 

Rue

Yay gardening!

Garden Lovin’ – Wild Panamanian Tomatillos

J built a wharf next to the houseboat, he began months ago, and we’ve planted some trees and edible plants along the side.

Recently, on one of my strolls along the wharf to check on our plants, I noticed a plant that looked like a wild panamanian tomatillo!

Sure enough a few weeks later the tell tale tomatillo flowers popped up underneath the leaves. Shortly after tomatillos began to grow!

This is really exciting for the girls as well.
They really love searching under the plant for fallen fruit and gobbling them right up!
