Hawaii and Duet

Hawaii dahlia

Dahlia update: happy that these 2 dahlias turned out the way they're supposed to (as depicted on the description image). They stand out so boldly with their dual colors.

Duet dahlia

The garden continues to chug along with cucumbers, green beans, and some cherry tomatoes here and there. It's amazing how it all adds up when you pick a little bit every day, enough anyway so that there's always one hot and one cold vegetable dish for dinner.

Cucumber, okra, red bell pepper "Quadrato", and from Esselunga market - Melanzana Rossa di Rotonda, a small, round, reddish-orange eggplant with a protected designation of origin (DOP) label.

Todays high: 27°C / 81°F


  1. nice garden harvests, your dahlias are so pretty!

    1. At least I can say that we glutted ourselves on cukes this year. We'll probably max out at 30 pounds by the end of the season. And the dahlias did alright given the mainly shady spot that they're growing in. Got space for a couple more next spring.
