The Fruits of Edible Gardening

There is always a reason
to appreciate the change of season.
Yes, it’s the time of the year
when spring is near.

Mulberries almost ripe ~ a few more days, just a few more days.

It’s been a mild winter
with chilly winds but no frost,
so the tropical fruits are happy while the apples might be lost.

Cherry tomatoes which braved some chill are nicer than nice.

 Papayas are beginning to ripen
and the mulberries too.
The tomatoes love the warming
just like the lemons do.

 

Lemons, soon to be used in tea with honey, over fish, in pickles ...

The garden is beginning to color
with flowers and fruits once more …
and soon I can pluck and munch my breakfast
just 5 steps out of my backdoor.

 
I am still a Permaculture novice
and still being put to the test;
but I have tried my very best
and allowed Mother Nature
to guide me with the rest.
