Born February 2015. Died November 2015. It had grown from seed to be above the fence. There would probably be fruit to eat in two months. And then it was cruelly killed.
in nine months it was above the fence height, and soon would be fruiting
a storm knocked it over, but it still had roots in the ground and could have been uprighted. However a lorry just drove over it, and that was the end.
two other papaya suddenly are dying
other papaya live on – some are flowering or have a couple of small fruit – which will fall off while still tiny. Later fruit will grow to maturity.
damaged by haze, but now recovering
mock orange died while I was away – lack of water?
Well, that’s the bad news out of the way. It still rains most days or evenings – for a relatively short time. So we have some cloudy periods and some sunny periods during the day.
protective envelopes on passionfruit
despite protective envelopes on passion fruit one was attacked
despite protective envelopes on passionfruit another attacked
another passionfruit attacked – I hadn’t noticed it to protect it
one day I picked 35 passion fruit – I have to pick once they start ripening as if I wait longer they will be attacked by rats or squirrels
other mock orange are very happy – so much rain
limes growing – still tiny
bean plants growing well – no beans as yet
Canna Lilies coming up. I transplanted 15 from one pot to two. So far eight are coming up. I hope the others sprout sometime.
trying again to grow papaya in a pot.
pumpkin plants growing well
a tomato is growing on one plant, although all the other plants have none
capsicum growing – from compost
chilli plant – from compost
we think it’s a lemon tree
Bougainvillea happy as usual
