Hello, today is a visit around John’s garden. There is some differences with a French one and we are going to see why ;-)
This is lemon grass (could exist in France) and it’s possible to make tea with it. I should try.
This is… heuuu… beans? (Pff, bad presentation).
And a Popo tree! This one I know :-) It’s call “Papaille” in France. I discovered this with John and we used to eat this fruit when it’s still green in a salad with Zackari in Cairns.
Tomatoes are growing on there sticks but it’s just the beginning.
Grape fruit tree (pamplemousse).
Close up on two grape fruits. The season will be ready in June if I remember what John told me.
This is a… rah a… I don’t remember…
This is just the skin. Those insects live in the grown then come out and sing very loudly.
Still this fruit. It’s an exotic one. Grenade? Ah no, this is a passion fruit.
The tomatoes again.
I helped John yesterday to cover this crop before the birds attack it.
That thing is where each banana comes from. This bit didn’t get fertilized so it’s useless now.
If I open it…
We can see the tiny banana which didn’t develop themselves.
They are something like 3 cm long.
And they is a lot. That how a crop can weight until 90kg if all of them had been fertilized.
John has four big water melon and some Pumpkin as well.
From underneath the leaves.
A tree from behind. This the one the flower looks like vanilla flowers. John knows certainly the name but my memory is too short.
And a second Popo tree full of fruits :-)
And I continue my turn around the flowers. before…
Some hot chili pepper!
Green ones are less hot but still good.
Hibiscus, I know this one!
The St. Andrew’s Cross Spidersitting between classic zig-zag Stabilimenta. This one is armless (inoffencive).
What is that one?
And we finish the visit by the cemetery ah ah :-)

Hey Damien, You know that banana ( the red little thing) we call that ‘ Puso’ is like the shape of the heart. :-)

The lemon grass good idea for tea and you can use it for soup and curry. I have one in my garden. very handy aha! :-)
La citronnelle : anti moustique aussi !
