After a long, cool and windy summer, we have had an amazing autumn. Overall, I would say we have had a good growing season.
For example, we have had ripe tomatoes continuously since 13th December – over 4 months and still going.
Our chillies are ripening.
These are yellow capsicum (peppers), but they may not ripen this late in the season.
But the guavas have had no trouble ripening. For the red guava we have noticed that it fruits in April and then again in July. In this photo you can see ripe fruit next to blossoms.
Oddly, one of our plum trees is blossoming – not a good sign.
The banana has had its best year, but still no fruit yet.
Strawberries are making an autumn push. We have had fresh strawberries since October – over 6 months.
This corgette (zuchini) has been producing for about 3 months and still going strong.
We’re giving the melons as long as possible to ripen.
Despite a wind storm in January that caused this tamarillo tree to drop half its fruit, it is still laden.
