Which fruit are you made of…

Plums are my ethnobotany. I feel their goodness in me. They have sustained me for years. I have grown and preserved them in my gardens, devoured them! They grow plentifully in my ancestral home. I have been lucky to have been surrounded by plum trees.

Towards the end of summer, there would be plums everywhere in the house, waiting, oozing sweetness.

We are not passionate enough about fruit trees. We need to reclaim ownership and care for them more.

Currently reading about ethnobotany, lemons in Italy, who owns our fruit and who owns us.

Jay Rayner’s A Greedy Man in a Hungry World is recommended. We need to be proactive about our food chains!

Fruit not War

So many contenders for most despicable politician across the globe. Bogeymen and women galore. Will they snuff themselves out or will one come to the fore as the 21st century Hitler. Does the media f with our minds blurring the line twixt fiction and reality. Will oppression be beaten again. And will robots be the winners as we humans wonder what on earth we are on earth to do. Will we concede that growing trees is one up on making wars. I heart cherries #Saturdaythoughts Grow fruit trees. Feed the birds and bees. The rest will follow.
