We have bananas! And now I want every tropical fruit tree in my yard! Except papaya. Because it’s dreadful.
But mango, lychee, custard apple, passion fruit, tamarind? Yes, please. But I don’t think our yard can handle all of that.
The house next to us has been in foreclosure for years. We’ve helped ourselves to the mangos growing in the yard, so I’ve been thinking maybe we should just be bold and become fruit squatters.
It’s just our luck that Mounts Botanical Garden’s Tropical Fruit Festival is Saturday, so we’re hoping to walk away with at least one new addition to our yard.
And isn’t there some rule that if you grow bananas you need to raise chickens??
