One thing I really enjoy about living here instead of the cooler climate of Scotland is the chance to grow plants that would be hard or nigh on impossible to grow outside back home.
Our avocados are now ready for picking so today I was up on the roof collecting some windfalls. Our dogs love them so they always get to the ones that fall on the floor first!! Problem is my favourite avocado dish is to have it with prawns which aren't as easy to come by....and they're ruddy expensive!!
Other easy home grown delights include pecan nuts, oranges,grapefruit, mandarins,grapes and tobacco.
