Yeah, that’s right. We grow our own food!
We have two main food sources from the property right now, the garden and our fruit trees. Our garden is doing really well and is starting to produce tomatoes, snow peas, cucumbers and spicy lettuce. We have some other stuff coming in too like jalapeno and habanero peppers.
Most of our grafted fruit trees are not really producing yet with the exception of the first Starfruit (Carambola) tree we planted. They are all too small and although some of them have flowered and started to grow fruit, nature took over and made all the fruit fall off so the tree could grow up big and strong.
The exception to our ‘non-producing’ fruit trees are our banana trees. Wow, they really exploded with growth this year! That is probably pretty apparent with all the ‘banana blog posts‘ we’ve done, but they are fast growers once they get established and 70% of our trees have produced bananas this year. Check out our most recent harvest!
