They grow all over the places around here.
Anywhere someone tosses a squash or pumpkin or whatever, I guess.
They rarely set edible fruit.
Now all that's left of the patio and teraza of this house are the homeowner's plants, and my succulents. And Narcissa, Esparanza and Gracia's plants. It looks really bare right now. But that's okay. I am trying to get in gear for moving. Mostly because I don't want a repeat of last years frenzied move. When I waited til the last minute to move, hoping my original choice would be completed in time to move in.
And also, apparently there is some serious snow up North. I'm afraid my landlord will decide to show up early. He left last spring a month later than they had told me they were leaving, and it ended up being difficult to me to be on the beach during Easter week. But I am lucky to have this place all summer and can't really complain.
Tomorrow I am going to try re-organizing the succulents, and getting them each into their own little home pot, more or less. The rain is continuing and it's really very heavy rainfall.
I have been out of fiction books for about a week, so I am studying my "Tropical Gardening" book again. Learning alot. And reading more of other peoples' gardening blogs. Especially the succulent and cacti lover's blogs. And the Neo-tropical Savanna blog, currently my favorite.
I seem to be over a crabby negative space I was in for awhile. Thank god. I was sick of myself.
I have had a stream of company today, and that probably helped too. Although, really, I am kind of a solitary person, so company is sometimes a mixed blessing, but not today.
