Found Fruit

Month 1 Sunset Magazine's One Block Party contest with Team Found Fruit

We are busy as bees getting our gardens planted and food projects underway. It's exciting to have 4 gardens with all heirloom varieties of veggies growing. Though the snails are continually eating our seedlings, we have planted some exciting varieties like Tigger melons which are small melons with brilliant red and yellow stripes that we're training up a trellis, Black Sea Man tomatoes that are black on the outside and green white and red on the inside, Parisian carrots which are tiny and round, and even peanuts! Kitty has started raising rabbits for our feast, and I have frozen some harvested prickly pears and nopales as well. Our bees swarmed recently but we were still able to harvest some delicious honey. It's all part of learning and perfecting the art of living sustainably.
