Community Garden In Wet





While the big wet falls around the Community Garden continues on.













This paw paw plant promises beautiful fruit in the coming months.

And below soon some wonderful lemons.






My lavender did not survive the wet soil and has been replaced with bean plants.

Below new red carrots should flourish in the water sodden soil.















Red beans, ceylon spinach and basil are great growers in humid summer weather.

Beautiful garden photos! We have a native pawpaw here that looks very different to the tropical one you are growing. I wonder if the fruit tastes very different, too.

I would be so anxious for those lemons. You garden looks to be doing very well and paw paw is a pretty plant.

Bangchik not sure if Ceylon spinach the same as Malabar spinach?

Lloyd has been very wet in Queensland for some time, ground so wet any additional rain results in flooding. Increased temperature of ocean could be a factor, but I am not a scientist. All seems very unreal and like a different world, especially as had just returned from Christchurch, New Zealand with it's ongoing earthquakes.

I would love to grow my own lemons.
For you to grow lavender, you'd have to plant it with lots of stones in the soil beneath for drainage. We have clay here but I've perfected the planting for all the lavender I grow from trial and error.

Nice garden. Wish I have more space to grow something at where I live.

I'm having the very first GIVEAWAY on my blog. Please stop by to submit an entry. Good luck.
