Garden Surprises!

Our little passionfruit plant looked a bit sad for a while there, but seems to be doing ok now, in spite of a lack of attention! Meanwhile, I thought I’d tell you that a little while ago we found what appears to be figs growing on what appears to be a fig tree! They look and smell like figs; let’s hope when they’re ripe that they taste like figs too! I think a fig feast will be in order, and we might need some friends to help us eat them, cuz there are SO many!

Today I also found another surprise treasure growing in a pot of lovely compost given to us by our good friends, Tim & Ruth Schloss. As you can see, the tomato plant we’d planted in the compost is dead (whoops) but look what IS growing!


If you can identify it, let me know! To me, the most novice of all gardeners, it looks perhaps like some kind of climbing bean or pea? It definitely has tendrils, and a cute little yellow flower that I hope will grow into something edible! I love the way that learning often happens in surprising ways and surprising places!
