This photo was taken a few weeks back, the vine’s sort of dying now.. starting to see the pumpkins hiding underneath, but there’s not many and are still small and far from being ripe ^^”
I’ve pulled up the snake beans, but hesitating in pulling up everything as I am just starting to get fruits off some of my luffa vines, eggplants are still productive, and am waiting for seeds from Chinese broccoli and Thai/Vietnamese basil.. the turmeric and jicama have just started to take off about a month or two ago and I am not sure whether I should dig them up coz I don’t think they’re ready yet.... I think I will not plant them in veggie beds next year as they’re slower then I want for the crop rotation, not to mention the discovery of root knot nematoes … Argg…but I don’t want to miss out autumn planting. What do you guys do?
I’ve spread a bin full of almost ready compost into one large and one small beds… although they are not completely cleared yet. I have also bought 5 bags of horse manure, and 6 bags of mushroom composts to
refill the beds.. but doesn’t appear to be anywhere enough.. guess that’ll do for now..
With autumn, it’s also time to prune fruit trees, I’ve got the following fruit trees to prune and would like some suggestions of how to go about it ~ any advice’s welcome!
This has been in the ground for 2 -3 years, never harvested anything from it.. saw one single flower about a month ago.. no fruit developed. I think it could be that I prune it every summer because of the leaf miners.. didn’t prune it this year, just cut off the affect leaves.
I will be pruning off some of the inner branches to open it up later.. it looks like there’s some sort of deficiency though… the new leaves are lime yellow green… !
Been in the ground for 2 – 3 years too, but moved once.. got two sour fruits from it in its first year… not looking very healthy right now.. what should I do to this one? (It’s hard to see in the picture, so I’ve circled the mandarin tree)
Been in the ground for less then one year, never pruned.. certainly doesn’t look very dwarfish.. does cutting all the way back and leaving about 20 cm from where it branched sounds about right? Wait till it dropped all its leaves first?
Been in the ground for less then one year, never pruned… will tried to prune to give it some structures.. appears to have been attacked by leaf miners, and citrus gall wasps..
Been in the ground for 2 – 3 years, gives a few fruits every year, but all rotten..
Seems to be suffering from some sort of canker and rust .. I prune off half of the new growth every year, but I think I pruned too early last year, so will wait for all leaves to drop before pruning this year.
It is flowering at the wrong time of year again.. what else should I do with this one?
A relative of citrus, it was kept in a pot for six months before planted in the ground less then a year ago. Should I cut off the tip to let it branch out or leave it for another year to see how it grows? There’s not much information I can find about this tree..
Oh, just a couple more pictures, here’s okra reaching out to the sky, and paw paw eaten by fruit bats? They only attack this tree, which is the tallest of the fruiting paw paw trees.. it is too tall for us to reach the fruits easily so we haven’t done anything about it yet and just let the fruit bats have their share…
