Growing fruit is like being pregnant.
You watch your girth (in this case, fruit) grow-slowly.
You add extra vitamins and minerals to your diet (or soil).
You plan for their arrival only to be fooled that the girl is a boy, or vise versa (in our case, that the grapefruit was a lemon).
And your surprised when your twins are actually triplets.
Yes, we now have a third fruit in the family.
Our daughter, Bryn, brought home a lovely five foot potted Brown Turkey Fig tree yesterday (an early Mother’s Day gift). And now I must raise it, and nurture it, and love it, and hope for the best.
