That's pretty good, seeing a soursop in our area. I thought they only grew up north. One day when everything suits you and your work, your garden friends will be surprised with the plants you manage to grow on your block. 

The variety of tropical fruit trees is truly amazing.

They are going very well mate.  Settled in so well that their eggs shrunk to only ever so slightly bigger than the usual ones.  LOL.  I guess they just wanted to impress their new dad early in the adoption period.  I hadn't thought about it much but yeah, the 10 person rule is a bit of a pain for GVs.

Its a date! Thinking if this covid crap settles down again maybe can do a gv just before chrissy, lots of fruit going to be on the trees then. The other garden group that was meant to tour next weekend pulled the pin- they had 24 people and wanted to do multiple tours of 10ppl , that was more than I agreed to, considering I am not even a member if their group. By the way , how are the quail going?

I really must do a fruit tasting at your place mate.  You have such a wonderful range!
