It’s me again and maybe you’re wondering how come I haven’t been posting as regular these few days so I’ve decided to give you all a little glimpse. Well, just a little. Since the set of posts for Divali , I’ve been a bit tired, not from posting but work related, so I decided to relax a little. So what did I do? Well, I’m not much of a limer, so I stayed at home and checked out the fruit trees around the yard to see what I could get. And I did get a lot of fruits! Lets check them out.
My first stop the Chinee Coconut tree. Got a few with slight jelly and lots of fresh coconut water. This was the start of a nice day don’t you think? Leaning on the bunch is our trusty and sharp cutlass (machete) also known as a 3 canal (now you know where the local rapso group got their name from) or 3 line because of the three distinguishing marks.
Afterward it was time to visit the pommecythere tree. This year, like the five finger (carambola), the pommecythere took on a large load of fruits, but there was one problem: this tree is very tall and most of the pommecythere was unreachable at the ends of the branches. Anyhow, we got someone to climb and pick with a long bamboo rod with a bag attached at the end. There was so much I had to give away!
So you see what a wonderful day I spent? Lots of relaxation; time to ponder on thoughts and ideas; even some time to watch some cable while enjoying some soft jelly and a nice tall glass of free coconut water.
So now you know what I have been doing …..Back to recipes soon. Ah gone!
