mango season

Pictured: mangoes ripening on neighbor's tree, hanging right over where our rainwater cistern is going to sit. In the distance, the large avocado tree we're preserving, and which will act as a focus of the courtyard.

Not pictured: four hungry peeps. If the mango tree is always going to produce fruit around Passover, we may have to alter our traditional menu of affliction.


  1. I'm moving in.... mangoes and avocados. Mmmmmmmhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  2. I neglected to mention the two sapadillo trees, too. I haven't worked up the courage to try one, yet, but we have a neighbor who makes preserves with sapadillo (or sapote).

    There is also a coconut palm just out of the frame, which should be a good source of potassium.
