How Does Your Garden Grow?
Looking around at the gardens in our area, I’m surprised at the lack of fruit trees in local gardens. We live in a climate, where Mangoes, Paw Paw, Avocado, Bananas and Passion Fruit, amongst many other fruits are so easy to grow. I watch as locals pay a fortune at the supermarkets for these fruits. For instance this season 1 passion fruit cost 99cents. My passion fruit vine produced well over 100 delicious passion fruits, that’s a saving of over $100 from this single vine alone.
I can understand why people don’t plant vegetable gardens, due to time constraints or bad backs, as vegetable gardens are quite work intensive [ still well worth the effort if you are fit and have plenty of water]. However the above mentioned fruit trees, once planted need very little attention and yield very generously in our area.
It is a wonderful feeling to come inside with a basket full of produce from your own garden – if you have not planted any fruit trees in your garden – give it a go – I’m sure you will find it very rewarding.
