oh yes, the garden crops.
when harvey was 1 we planted a Longan tree (with his placenta beneath) and this year we had a huge crop. i mean about 200 longans. They are similar to lychees, less flesh, and more grape-like in flavour. we love them. last year we got no fruit at all (thanks possums), the year before we got 3. so you can imagine the excitement this year.
we pruned the tree as we picked, so there were branches lying around just laden with fruit. we bagged them up and visited all the neighbours and still ate about 50 each!
