The wet season arrived with an intense storm that bought thunder and lightning, hail and lots of welcome rain. We were fortunate not to get hail damage on our Farm just lots of rain. All of the pastures are green and lush again, the Cows are happy. There are lots of new leaves and shoots on all the newly planted Ginger and Turmeric. When we dig up Turmeric and Ginger for making Jamu we are finding new season growth on the Rhizomes. The new Ginger is such a pretty pink colour with a mild sweet flavour.

The Dragon Fruit has been covered in amazing giant flowers, the Persimmon have set an abundance of fruit. We are picking the last Limes for the season and eating Grumachama fruit straight of the tree. It’s almost Christmas and these fruit remind me of tropical Cherries!
