Gardening in the Tropics

In the meantime I garden and fiddle. I have plans to buy another tree today. Sure I am planting on rented property but it makes both me and the landlord happy. I also love getting a huge viable tree for $5 to $7 that takes off like a rocket. The 'Ducks Foot' tree some 10 feet tall in back had it's first bunch of new leaves 3 days ago. I sort of mangled it's roots when I stuck it in back in January. Two days ago it had 5 new bunches and yesterday the total came to 8. Like I said, the tropics it the perfect place for impatient gardeners. I found a Honduras Mahogany, nearly 20 feet tall and thin as a brromstick which I stuck in the front yard. It is happy but hasn't had any new growth yet. With those two and the third one I am planning, accompanied by the weirdfruit and Jackfruit I hope to have our entire house shaded by this time next year.
