Struggling in the tropics

I spend a huge amount of time in the garden. It's a strange climate because you can grow things familiar to those who have temperate gardens, but at the same time I have coconuts and mangos. The most difficult thing to deal with is the soil; it's highly alkaline and there's only a couple of inches before you hit limestone. It can take a long time to dig a small hole, even with a pick axe.

Trees, too, struggle to gain a foothold.

I have used that tree on my blog, if it's the one on Granada.
