This morning's fruit box from the garden

So the banana's are in their 4th week of harvesting and I still have 5 more hands to go.
The pawpaw are non stop. Have to pick them at this stage and ripen inside as any longer outside and they will be attacked by bats.
Finally... THE FIRST DRAGON FRUIT. And in answer to my own question about what variety - to my delight, it WAS the red one. Tasted divine!!! I have 6 more on the vine.

The red-fleshed ones are the quickest to ripen - from flower bud to picking in 2 months. Almost nothing else is like that.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
