Hide & Seek in the Garden

This year we do not have a drought in Alabama.  That means that even with heavy mulch, the weeds have gotten away from us. 

There is still stuff to be picked.  We just have to look a little harder.

That's an Israeli Melon.  It's supposed to be that small.  Especially when compared to my huge feet!

Oops.  That one got away from us!

Oh look; Fire Ants.  How Wonderful!  (She said with pained sarcasm)

 At long last my figs are getting ripe.

Habanero Peppers.
Scoville Units: 200,000-300,000

 Hot Jalapenos.  A mere 4,000-10,000 Scovilles.  Still too hot for me!

My hibiscus has bloomed three times this summer.  

The sweet potatoes are finally blooming.

You can even find spiders around here.  LOTS of spiders.  You should see the bite on Mr. Marvelous' leg!

And sometimes looking out the kitchen window into the woods, you find little patches of God-light.
