Growing stuff on hot concrete – gardening in tropical Penang – what’s growing in July 2016

It’s been raining quite a lot in these few weeks.  Perhaps on average every second day.

The main thing that’s happening is old pumpkin vines are dying down, new pumpkin vines are growing, and as it’s passion fruit growing season now, they are doing so.

These passion fruit seedlings pictured below I transplanted in April are now growing tall – many of them several feet tall.

I subsequently bought some huge passion fruit in Cold Storage, ate most, but germinated some of the seeds.  These I transplanted into the garden last week, in several spots.

And I have got one passion fruit, green, but full size – so early in the season!

And there are also a couple of tomato plants that have come up out of the compost.

No real change with other plants, so it’s been another quiet month.
