I walked up to Jerry's place this morning to check out his garden. I arrived, unfortunately, just as a bus load of people turned up so it was extremely crowded. I didn't get as many photo's as I would have liked but here they are.
He is growing corn at the moment and it looks amazingly healthy. I found out that it was popcorn so I don't know if that made a difference. I think those a broad beans in the front but as I've never grown them, I couldn't say for sure.

This one was not in Jerry's yard, but a mango tree I spotted on the way home. Last year, most mango trees had NO fruit on them and I noticed that a lot of the street trees were flowering a couple of weeks ago which is certainly not the time for it. Some have set little fruit - I wonder if they will last and we'll get a really early batch of mango's this year from all the ones that didn't set fruit last year? Interestingly, my two trees DID set a bumper crop of fruit last year and are not flowering at odd times so I expect they will fruit as normal.
Well, that's it for me folks. I've got some serious planting (all those vegie seedlings you saw in my back garden at the GV have to go out as well as my new roses, verbena and my mandarin from Jerry's) and pruning (Custard apple, china pear guava (so my husband can remove it)) to do this weekend. Happy gardening.
