My project: update three

The days are getting shorter and some plants in the garden are doing well – greens, sweet potatoes, cabbage and peppers. Beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and lettuce seem to be slowing down. Winter is citrus season so the oranges are coming on strong. We’ve already enjoyed a nice harvest of lemons.

Today is an unusual day for December, it rained here last night and the air is damp with a tropical warmth. Normally it is very dry and a bit cooler. I got out this morning and toured the garden, the rain from last night was still hanging to the plants.
