Foodie Sunday: Fruit
Yesterday was the day we made the raised beds at Greystone in the Friends Community Garden. I think I mentioned a group of us were doing this: with the blessing of the City of Beverly Hills we're creating this garden, growing produce and giving it to local food banks. We got assistance from local boys and girls scout troops who will help out for their badges and school kids will help for Community Service credit. With their considerable help we got the first two 20' beds done, ready for transplanting seedlings on Wednesday and Sunday. Whole Foods Beverly Hills was nice enough to donate seeds already and bunches of us have been growing them since April. As a matter of fact, the lady who came up with the idea has replaces her front yard with a vegetable garden, saving money watering her lawn and saving even more never having to buy anything in the way of fruits or veg.
Whole Foods also donated some food and water for the volunteers, including what I'm going to focus on, fruit. They had a bunch, but the ones I indulges in were peaches, blackberries and raspberries. The peaches were great, actually ripe and juicy. The last time I bought a peach at the supermarket I think it was made of balsa. The berries were so delicious I wished for some crème fraîche. They were almost as tasty as the ones I used to get as a kid- the ones that we picked ourselves in the woods behind our house.
I was told to bring some of the extras home with me. I of course said no thanks. Yeah Right..
What are your favorite fruits?
