Figs again

Groundwood Books has released a kids' title about figs, Rosario's Fig Tree. I'm into it!

I can tell, just from the trailer, that their character uses a different method of overwintering than I will employ (burying his fig tree rather than bringing the potted tree inside).

Their blog features a mystery vegetable anecdote by the author. Now I want to grow bottle gourds too.

Blooming aloe

This is the second year my aloe plant has bloomed. Based on what I have read, I suspect it is the sun room - my track record with other houseplants is quite poor. Aloes, however, are very robust.
