The four month cool and wet spell lasted into January, and then at last it warmed up as we approached Chinese New Year. Thereafter it was hot and rained only occasionally of an evening. I have to water the plants almost every day now.
Canna Lilies happily grow and bloom all year.
this I grew from two cuttings from another crepe ginger – now there are over 10 stems
a young lime tree – some of its first fruit – still small
plumbago seems to be happy in this spot
I normally prune the passion fruit vines at this time of year – dry the cuttings in the sun, and then put on top of the soil to add nutrition back
I had put a lot of pumpkin seeds in the compost, so now in places where I’ve put the compost sometimes pumpkin plants appear. Then I transplant them. This grew from a tiny transplanted plant.
Another pumpkin plant I recently transplanted.
Lots of baby lines on my original lime tree
Over 60 passion fruit are on the vines now
I’m growing several papaya on the roof – today the first flower opened
Aloe Vera like this spot – I should harvest soon. They always have little babies growing nearby so there is always another crop coming
bought from Cold Storage – this plant is struggling
Basil is OK here
Mock Oranges are usually doing well
some of the many passion fruit growing
passion fruit I recently picked – or fell to the floor
these are very easy care – just water occasionally
some more crepe ginger plants
Duranta are happy if they have plenty of water
mini-eggplants. Great in soup.
So many mini-eggplants grow on one tree in a big pot
We’re spreading crepe ginger all over the place. So easy to care for and they look great.
