This year Spring came late, Summer got here late, so unfortunately I didn’t have lots of produce like other years. But it was enough to satisfy the whole family, especially my grandchildren who love the fruit and veggies I grow every year.
One of my babies taking a watermelon bath tab. The chichens had lot of fun eating this fruit afterwards!
My Guava Tree with pink pulp fruit florished this year!
Frangipanis (also known as Plumerias) are relatively small trees growing only to about 5-6m in height, but what they lack in height they make up in width often becoming as wide as they are tall.
They have a well-behaved root system which makes them great for the home garden and for growing in pots. Frangipanis are also great survivors coping with drought, heat, neglect and insect and pest attack. They are also deciduous allowing maximum winter sun while providing shade in summer.
It is generally thought that frangipanis (plumerias) are native to South & Central America although some reports claim they are native to the Caribbean and were taken to the Americas by Spanish priests.
