Fucking thing. Anyway, here is your task for me. Try to identify these fruits.
The first is that red fruit.
This next one I heard about on ABC radio. It looks like butternut pumpkin inside, has the texture of avocado, but tastes like a cross beyween banana and passionfruit NomNom!
This one is also a mystery. Almost citrus but not. These aren’t ripe yet.
Just three of the multitude of fruit trees here. These are the ones I cleaned up around today. Big job for a little mower. Poor thing. It goes hard,but takes three or four passes to really knock down this jungle. I need a kick arse ride-on, or the big slasher really. This grass is on average 70cm high and thick. But it’s worth the effort 🙂
Yep, I’m crashing again I think. I know the signs. But I’m fighting it.
Tomorrow I head for the citrus. About a 40 by 30 metre area to mow. It’ll take a tank or two, but we’ll be able to get to the fruit when it ripens. I haven’t disturbed any snakes yet, but have swapped the thongs for boots & spats, just in case.
I really feel OK, but really wish she was here. She would be so into this place. Her little Eden I reckon.
Saw my first flying fox this evening. I reckon the aroma from the mowed, fallen fruit attracted it. So long as it doesn’t tell its mates about it I’ll be happy.
