"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Random Harvests


After almost exactly one year from planting, the bananas are ready to harvest.

And ripening.

Each is over 12 inches (30 cm) long.

They are fine specimens and extremely tasty.

Their total weight is more than 66 lbs. (30 kg)


Our mango crop has also been harvested

– only eleven fruits –

But that’s a ten-fold increase on last year.


And the pomegranates are in flower…

  2. Yes we have some bananas, we have some bananas today! (Can you sing it?)

    • Yes, I can sing it – but my staff are kind and loyal. Why should I indulge in such cruel and unnatural punishments?
