You must have an incredible garden! Do you have enough family to eat all of that?!? I was surprised to see the calamansi. My mother used to grow that. This is the 1st year I am trying my hand at veggies. I have tomatoes, zucchini, & bell peppers. Do my peppers need to be staked, too? Thanks for the picture of your baby zucchini. Now I know what to look forward to....if all goes well!

Thank you! We get just enough vegetables for our family, since I have a small vegetable bed, but I always end up bringing extra tomatoes to work. When the fruits ripen, we have tons and tons, and give them to friends, neighbors and relatives.

I don't stake my peppers, but I use tomato cages for more support once they get a little bigger. Good luck with your vegetables... I look forwards to seeing you post some pictures of them :)

Wow, love that Brazillian Plume flower... what sort of persimmons are you growing?

We have two types, the ones with a flat bottoms and the ones that are more pointed. I don't really know the exact variety, but I think my dad purchased them at Home Depot way back when... We have 5 trees in total :)

How did you get persimmons at this time of year?

They started growing flowers buds early this year. I think it's because we had warm weather early this year about two or three months ago... although it got cold again, then warm, then rain, then hot again... but they're pretty hardy and retained they're leaves and fruits :)

Stunning garden! I know you said your camera is acting up, but what kind of camera do you have? Is it digital? The pictures still look amazing.

Thank you! :) I use a Canon PowerShot SD100 Digital ELPH Camera. I had a tough time focusing even at the macro setting... so alot of my picture were blurry. I manually sharpened and brightened most photos using Apple iPhoto, but I think I'll start using Adobe PhotoShop to see if I can get them sharper.

You did a great job cleaning them up! I guess I'll have to sharpen my Adobe skills... :)

Is Calamansi as delicious as it looks? And what kind of apples were those? They look like Granny Smith but I think there's another type that's green. Don't really remember. I hope that when I get around to having my own garden it's as fruitful as yours.

To me, calamansi kinda taste like a mild lemon with touch of mandarin or orange. We use it in some Filipino dishes we make :)

The apples are actually young Yellow Delicious. That one tree has three grafts: Yellow Delicious, Red Delicious and something else I can't remember.

Your hydrangea is so delicate! Do you know what variety it is?

The meaning of the term "abundance" just appropriated some visuals into it... Beautiful plants.

Thanks for you compliments :) I don't know the exact variety, but it's some sort of Lacecap Hydrengea. I think my mom may have gotten that particular plant from a cutting from my Uncle. We have other Hydrengeas, but those pictures turned out blurry.
