Da Garden

Every year, all our veggie gardening has to be done out on the lanai. We had such a cool spring in Oregon that I’m not sure how the veggies are going to do, but the flowers sure are nani!

I ordered bean seeds from University of Hawai‘i, just to experiment. They got off to a very slow start and I’m not sure if they’ll even produce, but I wanted to try them.

Slowly climbing up the frame that Nolemana wen make.

We’ve already picked a couple of tomatoes!

Love this photo!

More tomatos. I love planting heirloom varieties. This one is called Arkansas Traveller.

I forget da name of dis one.

See the almost ripe one peeking through?

Cute, yeah?

This is an experiment. Corn seeds from UH… Kahuku Sweet Corn!!

Stargazer Lilies. Ho da tall!


Purple Coneflower

Angel’s Trumpet. Not blooming yet but.

The other Angel’s Trumpet. This one will have white blooms.



Pikake. Can’t wait for it to bloom again!

New growth coming on the Kahili Ginger

    Beautiful! I keep telling you I’m going to do deck gardening, but I can’t brag about it this year either. I admire your green thumb.

    I love your use of containers! I still haven’t gotten the hang of container gardening but I feel so inspired by your photos.

    Nolemana made one nice frame, yeah?

    Beautiful plants – very life-affirming. What a wonderful way to bring a bit of Hawai`i to your Oregon. Maika`i no!

    We’ve had a very cold year. No tomatoes, but good broccoli and the corn seems to be happy. I hope we get some more good things before the end of the season.

  6. How GORGEOUS!!!! I really miss my garden. When we move, Oscar has promised me a gathering of raised beds and walks where I can wheel around and get my fingers dirty to my heart’s content.

    Have been enjoying all your photos. thanks for sharing with us…hope the sharing helps you.
    What a fabulous garden & all on your deck?!?! We have lots of perennials all around – the lady who owned our house had 20 years at this place & used them well- something blooms from March -Sept or Nov. there were wonderful purple cone flowers in front but this year a ground hog stripped them bare!!!grrrrrr. I saw him sunningin himself on the sidewalk in front of the door one day & scared him. the next day – no purple cone flowers!!!

    you are in my prayers.
