How does your garden grow?

A beautiful Manoa morning. The view from my bed....:0)

This pepper is just perfect for picking - my first Hawaii produce (other than lettuce)! 

The papaya is in bloom! I think it's a bisexual flower (so should bear fruit without cross pollination) but I am having a hard time telling. My mouth is watering at the prospect of fruit! 

This wee pepper has a little way to go. They start out green then turn to yellow. 

Sunflowers starting to push through. I love dwarf sunflowers, this is just a packet mix. Not sure my little garden spot is sunny enough for them, but we'll see.

Most things are in pots, the soil here is so volcanic and nutrient poor, not to mention a pain to try and dig through. The only things not in pots are some herbs in my front garden (which is built up a little) and as of today, some native hawaiian sugar cane - it's red and really pretty!
