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

It’s been raining quite a lot again, almost every day.  Some days quite heavily.  Probably as a result we haven’t suffered from haze from Indonesia. Usually October is wet, so it could turn out to be a very rainy year.  And quite cool.  In the car the air-con is set to 27, and the heater often comes on instead, so I have to reduce the temperature.  At home the air-cons do very little.

Anyway, nothing much has changed at all.   And thus there’s nothing much to say. So this will be short.

passion fruit – probably 25 green ones on the vines – but so little sunshine that they don’t really ripen
