Apples and avocados

The build is progressing slowly and the internet has been down so I don’t have any photos of the roof going on our mansion to share with you. Towards the end of September the builders were running out of energy in the afternoon due to lack of food (it was Ramadan) so David gave them all some time off. Then they had a few days off to celebrate Eid. Since then there has been yet more rain making it difficult to get the roofing materials in. Hopefully things will get back on track as the weather is cooling and becoming dryer.

We have not yet started planning the garden in any detail but Omar Jassey is growing a few plants for us. There is a huge range of fruiting trees that we will be looking to grow such as lemon, lime, grapefruit, banana and avocado. I think David said that this is the first year they have managed to get fruit (technically a seed, I think) on the avocado tree. On another fruity note Happy Apple Day – go to for more info.

    I was wondering if I might use that photo of the two healthy looking avocados. I have an avocado tree in my front yard, but the fruit is so high I can’t get a good photo of it.
    Just wanted to ask first.
    Thanks & Please Advise,
