I was given a bag of nisperos. They are a local fruit they bruise easily and so do not travel well. These had been marked by the hail - hadn't tried them before but they were really delicious. A sharp sweetness, yes I know that is a contradiction but it's the only way to describe it, with the flesh firm like a peach
Awful photo but by the time I realised it was too late, they had all been prepared. Each fruit had 2/3 of these seeds inside so considering the size of them you do not get very much flesh.
I thought it would be interesting to see if I could grow them - they will have 2 chances lol
A little while ago I did the same with the advocado seed - the root grew quite quickly then the seed split and produced the shoot. I have now planted it up, so will wait and see how it performs.
I have also been experimenting with green smoothies - this one consists of cucumber, celery, pear, lemon, spinach and cilantro (coriander) - I got DH to try a sip, his face was a picture, certainly didn't like it preferring fruit smoothies, but I found it quite pleasant with the cilantro definitly adding to the taste
I said I had better get a wriggle on with the keepsake box - I have now stitched the box top and 3 sides with the fourth on the go, quite pleased with it so far
this is one of the sides, the wings are wired to give a 3D effect - it was only after taking the photo that I noticed it looked like a face, it doesn't look like that in the flesh though - honest
Better carry on with it only a couple of weeks left now.
Have a great weekend whatever you are doing
