Autumn is my new favourite season. Another between the extremes, just like Spring. My Summer plants are suddenly happy, and I get to see all of the cute new seedlings in the rain, their fresh leaves stretching straight upwards after every downpour.
Black chillis are beautiful to look at, and doing well in the cold and rain.
More beauty, like a colourful flame.
My “Bush Tucker” bush or Midyim Berry has gone from producing sweet little flowers all Summer to popping out strange white nipples, which are its berries.
It’s not a Finger Lime, but apparently this tree is a Native Sunrise lime, which is hybrid between Finger Limes and a cumquat/madarin hybrid. It should turn orange and it smells beautiful already.
My lemon tree was plaqued overnight by some jerk-offs known as Citrus Leaf Miners, which is the perfect name for them. You can see it sitting plump at the end of its trail. I squished them all, and they smelled zesty.
I’ve been madly forcing my watermelons, who say almost dormant over Summer, to have sex. I think I have at least 3 of these babies now, so hopefully I’ll get at least one watermelon this year.
This butternut pumpkin flower and baby looks promising, however the plant has since been taken over by mold spores again and so I’m thinking I’ll have to tear the whole thing out soon, to make room for more productive plants.
