On my recent trip I went to visit and help a friend in Burlingame, CA. I was there for eight days and we were busy busy busy.
When I travel I always notice the plants growing in that area. Some of them are the same as where I live, some are new to me and others I have seen and know about, but aren’t able to grow where I am living. In one place I might see something growing more robustly and larger then they grow in my area, in other places it might not get as big or large as it does where I live. It is neat to see those differences and similarities where ever I go.
My friend picked me up at the airport and when we drove into the driveway at her apartment I quickly noticed that the garage area was lined in cherry tomato plants. The bushes looked incredibly healthy and full of fruit. They are planted in a small very narrow stripe of ground that runs along two sides of the garage area. What a beautiful sight!
These cherry tomatoes where so juicy and sweet. Some of them where red cherries, others were golden yellow cherries. They were a wonderful treat since I had a terrible spring garden with very little to harvest. Every time we left the aprtment I was over there picking and eating with a smile on my face. Every time we came home, I was over there picking and eating and filling my shirt tails with tomatoes to bring inside for part of our meal (or several meals.)
I was respectful and didn’t touch Bugs Bunny’s stash. He certainly was a good watch bunny!
As you continue up the driveway towards the street there are 3 avocado trees planted. For being planted in such a small strip of dirt they sure looked like happy trees. There were several avocados on the trees. What a nice treat they will be.
It was certainly refreshing to see some edible things planted amongst these city apartments.
