Watered for 3 hours today. First crop of jaboticaba is in fruit. I have about 20 of the trees. I love them but so do birds. Should be some left for me with that many trees. lol  They can fruit up to 8 times a year under good conditions. 3 - 5 is normal.

Planted water melons and westralia beans. Did some weeding, garden bed preps, fertilizing and irritating. Am developing a small local network of heirloom seed growers and savers.

this year we got a good crop of limes and lemons, trees are so loaded that we had to prop them to support the branches from breaking off  ;) 
Cherry trees are coming along finally, no fruit this year as we removed flowers to give them a chance to do better next year. 
Capsicums are loaded in the greenhouse with a bumper crop, so are the chillies, and our cos lettuce is ready to harvest.  Fig trees are doing really well but my beloved plum trees don't have a single plum on them this year which means no schnapps :(

On another matter:  Cleaver's has a special on Aussie Outback 308/168GR Matchking AMMO ATM  ;)
Picked up another 20 x 480 pc cans last week   :P

Planted 12 X 30 cm high Pecan Nut seedlings & watered them in, did some chipping-weeding & watered 300 fruit trees. Expecting 34 C tomorrow so want to have an easier day then.
Have a great setting on my 12 custard apple trees & the tropical pear trees too. If the pear trees get any taller I'll have to pick with an extension ladder.
The jaboticaba are fruiting & the grumichama should ripen in Dec. Lot of other trees are flowering or setting fruit too.

Hi Russ, Have 12 grumichama & all fruiting but only on half the bush, they were all striped of vegetation on the side facing the hail through to lesser degrees away from the hail as they have fairly thick leaves. They are about 6 years old & 1 m tall. Stunted I think from lack of water. I got a few cherries the 4th year, lots more last year & even though only half output now there will be a few buckets full. Birds do not seem to eat them as they do jaboticaba. Grumichama are great, little difference to a large real cherry only no pip but flakey seeds.

Lucky you GG have always though to plant a couple more. Trying to get a GAC vine that is female, much to wife disgust. Avocado are growing well after we lost one in the frost from the global warming :)

I do not have a gac vine. I'll ask at Permaculture meet if I remember. Those folk have just about everything. I planted about 10 avos, again to fill space but most died during the 6 year drought because of global warming :) so only have 3-4 now.

Last night/today: Received my MREs and bricks to try. Reloaded 300odd rouds for storage.
Today i am trying one of the MREs from start to finish. Discovering that i hate the taste of alot of things, since im a fussy eater. No fun forcing myself to eat something, i suppose the struggle at this point is, in my head i know i still have options if i dont eat it. None the less, forced it, hated it, ready to get some work done.

Hey GG, delivering a couple of Jack Russell pups to gympie on sunday. I can come around for a cuppa if you want.
Can not stay long, but at least we have faces to put a name to then!
Russ
