Kale - cavolo nero and red winter
Beetroot - red globe and bull's blood
Kumi Kumi pumpkin
Giant Russian cucumber
Miniature red onion
Rosella's... which are fruiting abundantly but need to get bigger before a productive harvest can be collected.
Banana's..... our second bunch
Passionfruit....which has decided to fruit more abundantly....I think these vines heard me discussing a severe pruning
French beans....fresh delicious and by the handful almost daily
Lady finger banana's..... the most delicious harvest
Eggplants.... grilled purple fingers
Hawaiian guava's.... our first fruits straight from the tree
Red papaya ... with mint of course!
There is a lot of fruit activity as well......
The peach has been pruned back hard and is now a flourish of green at a more manageable size.......as is the mulberry tree which seems to desire nothing more than to race for the sky with giant leaves and a mesh of beautiful branches.
The blood orange and lemon are strong and steady though still small.
The avocado is also plodding along but is a well worth slow wait for those green egg shaped fruits full of healthful creamy goodness.
We have eaten the petals from our feijoa tree in the front yard when it flowered.... we knew it would not throw fruit just yet so we could not resist trying out this sweet delicacy.
The grape is struggling after being transplanted too many times after the construction of sunflower cottage...but I'm confident it will bounce back next Spring.
And as I posted about recently we have a new fruit addition to replace a palm tree that was stealing productive space.....a tropical apple that I am oh so excited about....I never thought I would ever experience plucking a crisp apple from my own tree living here in the tropics....but now hopefully one day soon I will get to experience that dream along with a whole lot of homemade apple crumble!
So amongst all this abundance of late the fig is the only tree having a rest......it has gone into cool season hibernation which I am more than happy to oblige because with so much other sowing, growing and eating going on here I have more than enough to be grateful for and to keep our bellies satisfied.
