Home Renovation - Final Product :1 - Front Porch

With my contractor giving up and trying to suck up more money from us, we decided that we will go with multiple other persons to get the stuff done at home than to rely on the guy and be in the exact same situation after one month again.Our home got finished almost (no furniture) around November last year.

2016 - Backyard Plants - 4

Lets start with flowers again!!!
Asiatic Lily Flower
 Wild flower mix
Tulasi plants ready to be donated
Kanakabaram and malle chettu
 Tomato plants
 Some red tomatos showing up. I am not happy about the size being so small but nevertheless having the home grown tomatos is always a happy feeling. I am happy for what I am getting. An aunt tasted one of those tomatos and told me that it reminded her the tomato's from India. That is a big compliment.

 my plants in pots enjoying summer outside on patio (hopefully enjoying)
Gongura slowly becoming big
 sorakaya chetlu
 small budding sorakayalu
 okra plants along with tomato plants in separate pots
one store bought cucumber plant. Hopefully squirrels will let it grow

 Watermelon plant still trying to settle down and grow.

2016-Backyard Plants - 3

Flowers from my garden on one day. 

I am little happy about how the small treasures of nature are coming in my garden. Here are some pics from it. One small capsicum, little sour greens, only a couple of beans, very little peas, very young eggplants and tomato's, small little okra and thotakura (amaranth leaves). Hoping to have a good output at least this summer as I could not have much last two years.

2016 Backyard Plants - 2

My mom unknowingly put lot of tomato seeds into a pot and they all started into a nice seedlings. i donated some and put some in community garden at my work place too. I still have some left and I better start putting them soon again. 
Peas in the pot:

 Tomatos and Okra's

 Tomato, Sorakaya, Roses, Dosakaya etc planted in single big space

 Other side view of same above:

I guess it is too late to ask for a plant bed so I just put some plants on ground.
 More roses and Tomato

 Roses again and other misc plants
Dosakaya. Although I planted it next to a pears tree, and hoping it would just have only enough sun and shade, I feel the sun is too hot now a days even for that few hours it receives. It started growing but turning yellow too :(.

Backyard Cleanup And Summer planting - 1

This year hopefully I can start back on my planting and being helpful to mother nature a little more and move towards a little organic. So I planted a lot of seedlings last month and here they are:

Bottle gourd, some tomato's and other seedlings

Some more here:
 Tomato plant I planted in backyard (bought from home depot)

My home plants finally trying to get some sunshine and warm temperature outside, but unfortunately, the weather is not that co-operative. It has been raining since many days.

A place near the pathway where I put some seeds from humming bird mix (I got that from BJ's)

 My perennial has grown out of the pot and finally found a good home for it on ground. Fortunately this plant do not need much sunshine.

The 3 greenhouse mobile plant beds. I like these because they yield maximum output from the plants planted in them. This year as usual I have one pot totally for tomato's, new ones are one is right now dedicated to okra's and other one with peas and eggplant . So lets see how they turn out this year.
Becuase of construction and extension project, I lost the two plant beds I made some years ago. This year I have to make sure I get at least one back. I also lost lot of my good rose trees which were growing and given me lot of roses each year. The contractor tried to put them in a different place, but unfortunately none of them survived.
 Luckily my apple tree is slowly starting up again. I am happy after 3 years it still exists and only thing this year I have to try is on how to make it even more better and strong.
 backyard where my rose plants and one of hte plant bed used to be. Now the home extended and I am happy with it inside. We made a small patio with stone and cement.
