I'm surprised apples grown down that far south. What's an agarita?

Cool pictures Dallas .. I will check out that site.
Yes in my yard I have a variety of things .. Apple trees and pomegranates, grape vines. Agaritas, berries, etc. I also have Purple Martin houses and plants for hummingbirds with bird baths and such.

And a grape tomato plant:

Well, those are just pics I found online. Nothing I took. You have pomegranates and apple trees down in Austin?

I'm enjoying your plant pictures Dallas. The yard has weeds now since the rain .. So I have to go and weed eat soon. I have many grape vines and pomegranates and some apple trees and blackberries. I'll have to get some pictures to post here.

I've been growing lemon thyme, Greek oregano, dill, and rosemary for weeks, but I got some pots on Freecycle, so I bought some Italian parsley, chives, French lavender, and some boxwood basil today (below):



Also bought a jubilee tomato plant:


And bought another Opuntia vestita again, since I lost mine last year:


And an Opuntia microdasys (bunny ears cactus). The one I got is yellow, but I prefer the white:


And last week I bought a Mammillaria pilcayensis:



And a green wheel sempervivium:


And some Coral Reef Chinese sedum:

Sandi, when I was a kid I used to grow carrots from the tops of grocery carrots.  I also still grow potatoes from sprouted potato eyes.  Some of those suggestions are fun for kids, but not so great for gardening - if you don't have a lot of room, it's better to grow named varieties of tomatoes.  The exception is heirloom varieties, which do grow true from saved seeds.  I didn't know about the lentils, and I LOVE lentils - wonder if they are worth the garden space?

Dallas very cool!  We have some of those or similar in my neighborhood.  They have a Dr. Suessian look.  Weeping mulberries are sort of similar. I like them because they make edible fruit.   How about a Hydnora africana?
