This has been a good summer for my bromeliads and their blooms. Since I been collecting bromeliads, I find that blooms are not always guarantee, some years I barely had any. We had an unusually rainy summer and I think this made all the difference.
I harvested my first Papaya fruit; I have four plants full of flowers in the back garden and two in containers ready to go on the ground. Papaya trees cross pollinate and many turn out to be male, so the more you have, the better chances for fruits.
