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

It’s been raining quite a lot again, almost every day.

New pumpkin vines are growing more and more, and as it’s passion fruit growing season now, they are doing so.

In fact, there are over 15 passion fruit maturing on the vines, and I picked the first one the other day
