In the last couple of days we’ve eaten the first or the spring fruit!  Loquats (still slightly tart but great) and alpine stawberries (incredibly good), both pictured below. Some people complain about the large stones in loquats, but what they don’t realise is that they are probably nature’s most enjoyable seeds to spit. See how far you can project them, and challenge the neighbours to beat it. 😉
Mulberries should be starting to ripen too although we’ve not had any ourselves yet. These three plants are amazing for ripening so early in the season; it will be months before the first plums and apricots are ready, the next fruits in line.
We give our respect!
