Summer Produce From Our Garden
These Manzano are killing hot
Our beautiful bananas
Ripe at last
This year our young peach trees did well. Small, but beautiful peaches. We mostly seem to have the Fruit Driller Caterpillar (Guava Moth) under control with our traps. The biggest pest at present is the Cicada. The seriously damage the young branches to lay their eggs. As a result the branches break when loaded with fruit. This summer they have been prolific with a lot of damage.
