Summer Days
The heat has finally hit us here in Southern Oregon, and looks like it may be here to stay. I have been working hard lately, trying to clear everything out of my greenhouse. I need to get all remaining plants out of there before the extreme heat kills them! I have a table set up outside with some of my smaller plants on it that are not quite big enough for transplanting yet. Amongst the myriad are two new varieties that I am excited to try this year! I am actually raising them as perennials, though in our climate (if planted outside) they would be annuals: Naranjilla and Litchi "Tomato." Here are some close-up pictures (note the awesome set of spines on both plants! - cute now, but lethal as they get older):
