Apple…Tree

One often wonders how they (and I do mean me) became so eccentric or individual (if you are being kind), often you just have to look to where you came from. As we like to quote in 4th grade, “. The apple does not fall far from the tree.” So, as I pondered this question while visiting my parents in Jamaica, I chanced to gaze around their yard. That let me know all I needed to know. Fruit, flowers, nutritious tubers, and vegetables grow everywhere in their yard. This is the list of what is growing on their beautiful suburban lot:

Coconuts, oranges, June plumbs, pumpkins, cocoas, football sized avacadoes, sugar cane, mangoes, limes, coffee,peppers,breadfruit, bananas, almonds, yams, sweet potatoes.

I am not including flowers or ornamental trees at this time. This type of behavior explains a lot. 🙂
