    I was moving a few plants today and I noticed an xanthosoma growing in my wagon of sedum. It was not planted in there so some seed my have gotten some how. It looks like my Tahitian Xanthosoma that I have ha a couple of years. I had tubers early this spring that I put in a large pot but I think the sow bugs ate them. I am not sure the colocasia are taking over the place. I am having too get some of my variegated plants moved too under the trees because they are starting too burn. I will post pics when I am though with the move. Here is a pic of my red wagon.

I dont use the shaker I use hand fulls.lol Still have some herbs too plant and my tomatoes. Got my tiller fixed and half too plant my strawberry patch. still have lots of things that go in the ground too. I still have at least a week under the shade house. I need too spray for weeds and poison Ivy too. Here are a few pics though. Nothing great.
    I remember how pathetic these plants looked in April and with all the storms and all the heat they are getting they look awesome now

    Well went out too check the Maui Golds too see how they were doing.I put 2, 2inch maui Golds in a basket of sand with one Blue Hawaii. 2 other alocasia babies. They are growing in my waterfall filter box for my Koi pond. When winter comes I will sink the pot down into the water and it will winter over just fine. I am not sure about the alocasia but I will chance it
    Well if you have never grown Maui Gold you should its one of my favorites. love how the stems seem too glo.
