Exciting times here in the hills. We currently have the following fruit growing on our land:

  • Roma Tomatoes
  • Two types of mangoes
  • Avocados
  • Plantains
  • Bananas
  • Coconuts
  • Papayas (ripe on the tree)

And to my great delight, I just discovered lots of flowers AND baby fruit on our young lemon tree!!!  This tree has yet to fruit, so this is very exciting indeed.

And the best indicator that fruit is soon to becoming abundant in the ‘hood?  Our next door neighbor’s kid stopped by yesterday evening with a bag full of “Mangostinos” (small mangoes) “para ustedes!”  Yum!
