Futureproofing

Behold, my efforts at being self-sufficient!


Bwahaha, like that's ever going to happen. But I did decide to plant two fruit trees, a mango and an avocado. No doubt I will have moved before they produce fruit but hey, maybe it'll be a selling point for the house - that it comes with the possibility of some fruit. And yes, I know the mango is very close to the fence, but there's not many other places for it, and besides, it's supposed to be a small variety that can be pruned to shape. And it's the neighbor's fence.  But I might move it in the next day or two as it's not right.

Once I buy a machete so I can get into the coconuts that already grow in the yard, I'll be set. Errr, mango and coconut guacamole, anyone?

How about mango and coconut lassi, with guacamole....
Hope the mango was labelled correctly. Our neighbours have mango trees (most of them) so I haven't felt the need to plant one of them, but I do have citrus trees and a fig tree. When the dogs aren't destroying them.

Er, no help on the plants. Best to keep me away from them.

But, on your post below...I've read several of your blog entries, most recently this one, and wondered if you might be hypothyroid (high cholesterol is a symptom) and either undiagnosed or undertreated. If you want an annoyingly large amount of info. on thyroid stuff, just let me know...
