My autumn colours #2


Friday 12 December, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Following on from the first look at our late autumn colours, we continue our photographic tour of the farm. With temperatures still hovering around the 18 (65F) mark, much of our vegetation forgets to ‘do winter’




The pomegranates finished by the end of November, but this year the lemons seem set to continue until late December.




Deep red coloured roses seem to be the most hardy, happily surviving our regular fierce rain storms.




Cacti grow like mad at this time of year !




Clementines are starting to drop around early December, so picking will commence shortly. Leave it 1-2 weeks too long, and the slightest frost or ice-cold rain can drop an entire crop, with black mould forming at the base of the stem. The fruit inside is fine, but impossible to sell.
