It’s supposed to be autumn and I should be harvesting persimmons and pomegranates but their new leaves are being mown continuously by the possums so they don’t get to flower, let alone fruit. I think I may have to replace them.
So imagine my surprise to see the loquat being unmolested. It’s fruiting for the first time and I can’t wait to taste them. I know they will remind me of Istanbul as they were in season and the first fruit I bought when I was there.
