Twelve. And there’s only four 15 minutes in a hour. It is obvious, and we never think of it, but now, let it sink in. Everything takes time, and its how time is well spent, or for the worse, wasted.

The weather this week… Just 3mm of rain. A high of 33.8dC, and low of 8.9dC. That’s pretty warm for the week. And the subtropicals are growing exploiting the condition.

The bananas, with the mister going on timer.

The paw paws are well out of the double bags.

The tamarillos seem to be on a growth spurt. There’s three of them, one more in the background.

The black and yellow passionfruits reaching into the Tagasaste Tree Lucerne. These are growing quite fast too.

Bamboos establishing itself underneath the Tagasaste Tree Lucerne. Could be useful for the Passionfruit Sweet Granadilla to climb in the future.

My little pumpkin patch. I watered them only once or twice a week.

Watermelon is flowering! I hope I get a good watermelon this year to save seeds from.

Two sisters in the raised bed doing well.

This is my best looking raised bed planted using the square meter garden concept. It looks so good I am reluctant to harvest the spring onions.

I’ve got two of these huge cabbages.

Tiny, small, medium sized onions.

Pink flowering strawberries.

And more strawberries trying to do a runner.

Tomaccio is going crazy and I have been having them for dinner every evening!

And some pear shape tomatoes.

Pears.

Apples.

Neglected globe artichoke.

image

Pinot Gris grapes!

Lemon and lime that came back from the dead.

A spider did this. Do you know that spider is the one that kept insects from being the dominant species in the world? So that mankind can be at the top of the pyramid.

I wish your day is as joyful as this Joyfulness rose.
