Summer Fruit

Mangoes, cashews, love apples, papayas, lemons, chickoos star fruit, jackfruit, bananas ... my little haphazard orchard filled with the trees of my childhood are all bearing fruit. I planted most of these trees about five years ago. Five years of tending has borne fruit. Walking through this tiny patch filled with little fruit trees ... feelings of achievement, bounty, happiness immense satisfaction and gratefulness to nature fill my heart

How fun! In my orchard I have apples, pears, and plums...I also have grapes, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries...nothing as exotic as yours, but definitely yummy!

Oh gosh, it is quite hard to imagine growing bananas in a garden. It's great that your fruit trees are providing a wonderful harvest!

Growing your own fruit is the best!!!

Imagine having bananas in the garden! For us it`s impossible. I have had a bananapalm inside in winter and outside in summer. But ovviously no bananas.
Here mostly grow plums, cherrys, apples and pears. Some places you can keep peaches. In the greenhouse i keep grapes, cucomber and tomatoes. Nothing as exiting as yours.

Love the lillys too. Here the lillybeetles are a big problem. Do you have the same problem?
