I love the time of the year when our subtropical climate makes plant growth go to levels not ever experienced in temperate climates. It can be now, mid or late summer when the temperatures are warm and the rain regular. Now is such a time. Here a few photos in my garden where I'm seeing this. I'm sure everybody is experiencing something similar with subtropical plants such as choko, squash, etc.
LabLab bean growing in abundance. Do I pick now or wait until they are pulses?
More LabLab bean but protected by Vege Net this time. Pollination not a problem but I did hedge my bets by doing some manual pollination. Lots of ants around so maybe they helped with this.
Dinosaur kale doing well once protected by Vege Net. Outside this protection the cabbage white butterfly decimates the plant
'Sticky' corn among the beans (LabLab and Mung). This plant is almost as tall as I am!
Basil mixture doing well. These include Cinnamon, Thai, Black Opal and Sweet varieties
As you would expect sweet potato loves these climate conditions. Thriving with the cherry tomatoes in a typical chaotic looking tropical abundance setting
Similarly passionfruit also gets in with the action. No fruit just yet for this season
My Dragonfruit plants are particularly vigorous. This one is using a Moringa tree as a trellis. Also notice in the background another one starting to climb up the wall
My Moringa trees aren't doing as well as I expected but I suspect this is because the rain has washed some of the nutrients from the potted soil. This one is flowering nicely though. I don't expect pods this year as the tree is too young
Finally the hot humid weather doesn't just supersize the growth and size of plants. This huntsman was a monster. I believe it still patrols my house
