The heavy rain has cleared this morning and my sustainable gardening efforts are showing results.
Sustainable gardening is new for me and I watch to learn how weather and soil additions affect the growth of my plants.
Before the rains started and it has rained heavily for about a week I had added lime to my garden and about a week before that blood and bone.
Now I can see the results in flowers and growing fruits.
The nectarines are growing plumb and the avocado tree I thought was dead has burst forth with blossom.
The passionfruits have many flowers and new fruits.
The paw paws are getting heavy and starting to ripen.
Even the mandarin planted just a few months ago has the beginnings of fruit,
and calendulas have self seeded amongst the vegetables.
