While I was gone to the farmers' market this morning, Adam attacked the verge with his scythe. The fenced-in overgrown area around the out-building needs hacking back. There are two or three trees in there worth keeping, but nothing else. It's volunteer pine and gum trees, and brambles. (Click here to see an aerial view of the farm; this section is #6 on that plan.)
Anyway, Adam whacked away ... or scythed away ... and did quite a fine job. He started in the corner closest to the pasture along the fence line.
We found another fruit (actually two of these) and had no idea. It's not ripe. It's not a grape (haha) -- it's a bit smaller than an avocado.
passion fruit! (Click on that link to see a photo of the blossom, which is striking.)Truly! Can you believe it? I'm wild with wondering what other treasures Mr. M. (the previous, now-deceased owner) planted back in that orchard, that we'll discover this fall when we're clearing it out. It's a large space, about 30 feet x 100 feet. It could be quite spectacular. Oh, I hope so!
