Meanwhile in Florida…

We still don’t have power, but my neighbor has a generator.  The neighborhood smells like poop, baby poop that is.  The worst kind.

Naples is on a curfew.  Lol

Btw I evacuated to West Palm Saturday around noon and got back Tuesday evening.  –>


Goodnight, Naples.

Today we picked up some new succulents from Orchard down the street.  If you kill a plant, you can bring it back for a 100% refund.  If you’re a member, you don’t even need a receipt.  #thefuture

Ashley’s Edible Backyard

The rain showed up right on time for a post-planting water job.


Madelene’s passion vine + new cacti > chain link fence.



Don’t hate me for putting the cranberry lemonade hibiscus in the corner.  It’s sugarcane adjacent.



Bananas in the back!  Get up and Gogi bush on the mid-garden fence.


OK, it’s about time to hit up my backyard’s backyard for another SWFL sunset.  🙂

Hello ECHO.

This week I went to ECHO Global Farm in Ft. Myers.  Aaron and Jack helped me pick out some new fruits and vegetables to grow in my backyard.

The ECHO Tour is one of my favorite Southwest Florida special things to do.  It’s right up there with Sushi Thai’s dinner special and Clyde Butcher’s backyard.

Check out my new future edible landscaping:

  • Banana tree
  • Gogi berry bush
  • Sugar cane
  • Cranberry hibiscus (hellooooo cranberry lemonade.)


Feel free to contact me directly if you need more information about Sushi Thai’s dinner special.  It’s unbelievable.
