I'm so excited that my Lobster Claw(photo above) produced its first flowers. I planted it last spring. This year the vegetative growth really took off and now you can see here its very first bloom. Also blooming for the first time is my Calla lily below.
And now the corn...
Corn isn't really a crop that is usually grown in San Francisco, but I'm hoping that the warmer micro-climate of the Mission district in which I live will do it some good. So far it looks happy. I plan on feeding it the best of my compost, which apparently is also producing beautiful black gold. In fact, as I was turning it yesterday I found a Mango pit sprouting! Unfortunately I hacked it with my shovel on accident. Next time I'll have to sift through delicately to see if I can pan out any other gold nuggets.
Pole beans below are looking very healthy as well.
