Jocote Time

JocotesThe jocotes are ripe. This is the first batch that Dino brought down from the trees. This time there appear to be more that the birds can eat.

Let me explain. We have lots of fruit trees including apple, fig, mango, nispero, peach, guava, avocado, orange and lemon. The birds get most of the figs and nispero and I think they share the peaches and avocados with the squirrels. (We had lots of peaches but humans got zero.) I am not sure who eats the guavas and the good news is that humans get all the lemons and oranges.

Clearly we are sharing the jocotes with the birds but I feel like we are getting our fair share. That, however, doesn’t make up for getting none of the macadamias.
