So we have picked the first papaya from our tree, and its a big one! Hopefully we got it at the right time (supposedly just before it goes completely yellow).
Sundown tonight is Rosh Ha’shana (Jewish New Year), so we’ll be having a festive meal with Bob, Naama and Amishai. It is customary to have at least one new food item that a blessing is said over (called Sh’hecheyanu). Our papaya is perfect for this and so will be served for dessert… we’re hoping it doesn’t taste awful! 🙂
