    We bought a lime tree about three years ago, had fruit on it; since then, looks healthy, flowers, but never fruited again.

    It's on my 'warning list' of plants, either produce fruit or I'll replant you somewhere in our no man's land over the wall.

    Had an ugly non-flowering oleander that I banished to the jungle land bad plant gulag, now it's 1.5m and flowering, but there's no coming back, life means life.

    Cat and mouse game between the moth and the mantis.

    Discarded wings from last 2 nights dinners don't bode well for the moth.

    ^I love watching the slow furtive advance on the hapless moth with the preying praying limbs slowly extending ....and then the lightning pounce!

    He seems to enjoy eating the head first. I guess that is the most humane end to start at if you are going to eat something alive.

    Not quite gardening, the salt farm at Pa Daeng 6km from town on today's bike ride

    Snowblindness may be a hazard here

    So is each pillar of salt an unlucky lady who made the mistake of turning to look back over her shoulder while fleeing Sodom-and-Gommorah-by-the-sea?

    I'm not sure about this one, never seen one before. Is it just a baby Long-tailed sun skink? We have a lot of those around. Or is it a rarer Siamese writhing skink?

    After fighting two very aggressive kinds of weeds for 3 or 4 years we gave up. Had new turf laid this weekend in our front yard.

    We’ve been getting up to half a dozen avocados every day from 6 trees on the property. They don’t look much in the outside, but instead they are creamy and buttery.

    This would be Mr (or Mrs?) Apex in our little jungle area.



    According to Wiki, domestic cats are included in their varied diet - that's a positive - however I'd still prefer if it moved to another neighbourhood.

    I am enjoying a cool damp change after the steamy summer

    After 2 years the monstera sapling is looking good.

    I got a seed out of one of this years fruits and bit it by accident and cracked it. But it still managed to germinate...

    You can just see it popping its rude little sprout out of the little yoghurt tub.

    Your photos are always great, Looper.

    Even the ones with the barbie dolls.

    What temperatures are you looking at there now and how low will they drop during winter?

    It was a chilly top of 24 for a few days last week Hal, although that has eased back up to higher 20s for Easter

    I am hoping not more than 6-8cm if I keep my thermals on!


    The preceding heatwave was enough to trigger my lilly pilly saplings to blossom and then fruit

    They blossomed last year but this is their first fruit so I will have a bash at germination

    Still sitting in that box currently but tomorrow my garden will be sowed with Senorita Surabaya's papaya and cassava. Cassava grows from those sticks. They are potato-like tubers apparently

    What's in your garden?-20240405_230442-jpg

    Senorita also brought me a box of what she said was Filipino curry. Cooked by the Filipino cook at her work.

    What's in your garden?-20240405_232144-jpg

    So I rustled up some of my fiery Tandoori as a trade, which is her favourite and had been made with the lantern peppers she brought 2 weeks ago. The Filipina curry was exceedingly mild being as how it was cooked for geriatrics, more like chicken stew, but quite tasty.

    What's in your garden?-20240405_233912-jpg

    She also brought custard apples and Japanese green tea flavoured Mochi. She polished off the curry but then fell asleep before I cut the custard apple open.

    What's in your garden?-20240406_001411-jpg

    Got a few seeds out of it so I will see how they germinate.

    They grow a lot of that around here. Just stick it in the ground and leave it. It seems to need very little water. However, people tell me the crop has a very low value. I suspect that some growers do it mainly to avoid the tax on unused land. Locals use cassava powder in some dishes, I haven't yet seen anyone eating the stuff like a vegetable.

    Don't be in a hurry for the cassava, it can take up to 12-18 months before the tubers are ready for harvest.

    The wife makes a nice dessert with bits of cassava in a coconut sauce. I think it may be more of a Filipino dish.
