Garden visit to David Pepper's food forest

 David's garden in its spring guise was an uplifting experience. The ramble through the productive forest with our host was punctuated by pineapples and macadamias. We sampled familiar and novel citrus varieties, then Leela had a lively encounter with a bull ant, but no hard feelings (after about 10 minutes 😂).

The cooks among us delivered again, for a sumptuous table of goodies under the familiar mulberry tree.


Thanks to David for hosting and to all who attended for a great afternoon.
