i spy

watermelon So, we have some papaya growing, right?!

There aren't any fruits to speak of after it blossomed but I'm still hopeful.

Anyway, my farming technique is to throw seeds into the dirt and if something grows then goodie!

I recently threw in some watermelon seeds into the same hole that I planted some papaya seeds and voila!

I spy watermelon sprouting amongst the papaya...hopefully next year I'll get to taste this.

UPDATE: the evil yard man has weed whacked the watermelon and papaya seedlings...sigh, need to start over (insert pouty face)

At least you can grow something I'm still mad at Mrs. Typhoon that took off every needles on my pine tree's now they are a DEEP dark brown... last time I threw a bunch of seeds into the ground, the HOA had some beef with me... as it turned out to be an over-grown English garden... damn HOA...

That's the nice thing about Hawaii's climate...you can grow stuff all the time!

thanks J-A!

boo HOA, Elle :( I think what happened to your pine tree is what happened to the one on our lanai a couple of years ago, not good.

So true, Rowena, and you never need to worry about hail too.

Take care everyone!
