I harvested the last of the tomatoes today. I will now have to start a new lot; the old ones are shaggy and mealy bug-ridden.
The only other plant giving us a regular harvest is the curryleaf, which we use everyday for cooking
I would have been looking forward to a mandarin harvest, and making marmalade from them, if so many of the green fruit hadn't been taken by birds/rats/whatever. Every time I go to the shrub, more green fruit have been taken.
Meanwhile, the heliconia golden torch blooms have matured and developed what looks like seed formations. Are these seeds or something else?
The sun has deserted Bangalore so I am going to wait for a while before I start the next lot of tomatoes, chillies, lettuce and brinjal. Hope I have better results this time.
