Adventures with papaya

Recently I am successfully papaya-ing. Papaya grows happily in the sky – it’s not one of those plants that will only grow in the ground and at ground level. I have to pick the fruit before it’s ripe or the musang will get it – and move with their family into my roof near the nice food supply.


So papaya-ing is growing papaya, picking and drying the leaves for tea, picking the papaya fruit and either I can keep them until they ripen, or shred them to make green papaya salad.

Interestingly, when I shred the green papaya it detoxes me. It clears out my sinuses etc. It may be uncomfortable, but it’s good. The effects last about two hours.


No birds after big storm

Since the storm about 10 days ago I see no birds around. Or very few, anyway. I thought yesterday I saw an oriole briefly.

Another storm

Last night was another storm. Lightning and thunder. It tripped a surge protector I have for a few electronic things. Which is unusual. And again today, no birds, even though it was great weather today.
