Jungle Jack's Desert Sunrise plumeria

Plumerias change with heat and this Queen Amber is showing a little more pink this week with the high temps.
I've tried sowing carrots in the fall the last few years but didn't have any success. They sprouted, but seemed to stall or become woody. Finally, this year, I had my first batch of fresh, crunchy carrots. I'm not sure if it was the variety (Atomic Red), the watering schedule, or location, but I hope I have the same crop next spring. With carrots as sweet as these, I simply toss with extra-virgin olive oil, sprinkle with garlic-herb salt, and roast for 15-20 minutes at 425 degrees.
This single Globe artichoke was planted in the fall of 2014. A perennial that produces in the spring, this year my harvest is up to 45.
