I know I haven't been posting much lately. Truth be told my writing and my flower gardening have both been suffering due to lack of time...I've been super busy turning five of our eight acres in an organic vegetable farm and setting up a CSA (community supported agriculture) program.
But I have to tell about my new agaves!
I did a post last year about my Agave scabra that we found growing wild on our property and transplanted to the area we call "the desert". Now there are some new kids in town.
I don't know what kind of Agave they are (feel free to help me out here), but I do know that someone ripped them out of the ground and dumped them on a nearby dirt road. My husband (who as you've probably noticed brings me random presents from time to time) is the one who discovered them and brought them home to be nursed back to health.
They were in pretty bad shape, but we found them a nice spot for them to recover.
It looks like they wrapped a chain around these poor guys and literally ripped them out of the ground!
But in just a matter of weeks the battle wounds are fading and new leaves are preparing to unfurl! Looks like they're gonna make it!
