Food grown in the home garden; easy as...

Eggs are best from your own hens. Mine have a big run to spread their wings, run after grasshoppers, relax under a tree and lots of lovely treats, they love to eat!

Probably one of the most private things in the world is an egg before it is broken.

Flowering Mango tree, Kwan

Ripe Mango, Tommy Atkins

Python curled up in a Mango tree; (No she is not a  pet, just a visitor.)

Churning Mango Ice cream; It was a hot summer's day.

Is there any fruit looking more inviting than the Pitaya? 

You can take anything, but not the Passion fruit vine.

Home made Passion fruit jam.

Jaboticaba; fresh from the tree pop one into your mouth, savour the sweet pulp
 and spit out the bitter skin. One after the other...mmh so tasty...

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” 
 George Bernard Shaw, 

Apples growing in organza bags, because of fruitfly.

...made from apples..


Breakfast, Yogurt and fresh fruit 

Scotch bonnet's chilies make a fine chili jam.

Vegetables from the kitchen garden;

Tomatoes grow and can be  be harvested summer and winter; 

Cooking is a pleasure, nothing compares to home grown;

     All human history attests 
 That happiness for man—the hungry sinner— 
 Since Eve ate apples, much depends on dinner. Byron.   

Believe it or not;
In the middle ages they fed the population with gruel, now they are fed with  weetbeex and cornflakes, cheap and nasty. Ts

  1. You are so clever to be able to grow such healthy fruit and vegetables and then make such beautiful jams and meals . You must be almost completely self sufficient. It must take a lot of hard work to produce so much food. I gave up on my veggie patch now I only grow herbs.

  2. How wonderful! Looks like you are living in a veritable Garden of Eden, Titania - complete with visiting serpent.
