Growing stuff on hot concrete – gardening in tropical Penang – what’s growing in August 2015

Well, another month with a lot of rain, although not for the past three days as I start to write this. So I will run out of my rainwater supply for the garden after tomorrow.

And since it’s been quite unstable.  I never know whether to do the washing or not.

Today the WordPress site is unstable, so I will publish this and see how it turns out…
