Here are a few shots of the 2016 Garden. The Chiles are starting to show some accelerated growth. It usually takes them a while to grow vigorously. There are even a few small Chiles. I went to get Tomatoes last weekend, and they didn't have any. I guess I waited too long this year, so I had to make another choice, Watermelon. These are the Sugar Baby variety.

I seeded the Bok Choy around the start of February, a little late for Bok Choy. So the plants never really had a chance for vegetative growth, and went to flower, then seed early. The Brassicaceae family generate small yellow flowers, and then produce a bean pod with seeds. This is why I am calling them Bok Choy Beans. I have pulled the whole plants out of the ground, then bound the root ends together so they can hang upside down.

Quite possibly my favorite Breakfast Taco is the Potato, and Egg Breakfast Taco. Krispy fried Hash Browns make this ultra nomlishous. My wife hears me say "These are the best Tacos evar" all the time. The best Tacos you have evar had are the ones you are eating right now... With Habanero Sauce...

I've changed some of my methodologies concerning the garden this year. Distributed compost in one. Rather than making one big heap of compost I have been distributing the compost around the garden using it for mulch, and pathways. Let the stuff breakdown where you need it. Also I used composed cow manure, and humus for fertilizer. Its probably been four years since I used it in the garden. I have been trying to use only compost for fertilizer, but I found out that I need something with a little more punch.
