Better late than never. A post that was hanging out in my draft folder.
Cora’s garden is blooming and fruiting as the summer gets hotter and hotter. It’s been hot and humid but with a breeze (my only hope for not melting).
Our papaya tree ripening fruit about 1 every 3 to 4 days. Not as big as those giant ones in the beginning but still big enough for my parents to share for their morning breakfast.
The calamansi tree is hasn’t stop giving for a long time. There are new flowers and baby fruit on the trees so I don’t think it will stop for awhile. This box will be turned into marmalade.
I guess the hot and humid weather has been great for other people’s garden as we got some local oranges and lemons (ugly) which are super juicy and limes.
And we also got this long squash. It has delicate white insides and very mild taste. It absorbs the broth it is cooked in.
Not a whole lot of flowers, they surprising me as I find the buds as I do my morning watering.
This orchid had 2 previous buds that the awful slug decide to eat one before it bloomed. Moved the pot to a higher position to spare it from slimy beast.
This on got repotted and I was surprised that it had a bloom. Really sweet heart blossom.
