It is desperately dry here.  We are watering as much as we can but much more is needed.  Luckily the pumpkins are pretty plump, but the feijoas are just not growing – still little green marbles.  The grapevine is huge and old so it is managing to survive, and the grapes are slowly changing colour.  Trouble is the wasps and birds are getting to them as they ripen.  Maybe they will leave us some.
