A learning journey of a city-slicker dreaming to live off of the land as much as possible, trying my hand at growing as much food as possible on a regular city plot. City Farm in the making with lots of pictures!

lots of mandarines!
Navel Orange: told'ya they're soft ball size!
Below, the dark magenta colored berries are (Scrub cherry, brush cherry) Eugenia myrtifolia berries. They are not very tasty, mostly tart, but nevertheless edible. Tried cooking them in a little sugar and it had a brilliant magenta hue, then I mixed them into gluten free muffins along with left over cranberry sauce, but it turned green inside the muffin. :-( It didn't taste bad.
This is just a small sample of the amount of oranges we have. These are decent ones without the mealy bugs so we're gifting them.
