We're spending most of our first month back in Brasilia, watching over the care of our grandson, Giovanni, while his parents and sister take their turn traveling to the States. We were able to make an overnight visit our place on the farm - I took some photos to share:
|The loofahs will be ready to harvest in a month or so.|
This is the plant that I thought was watermelon - it's the same broad family as gourds and squashes. When it dries out only the fibers are left as I'll show you when I harvest them.
|The healthiest of five coffee trees, all of which |
survived our absence.
|Our own lemons, ready for salad dressings, lemonade and caipirinhas.|
|The jaboticaba tree has survived my radical pruning job. Hopefully it will fruit well in October or November.|
|Grass is growing tall around the house - time to get out the scythe and the sickle.|
