always love sharing pictures of all the amazing food abundance in Texas, because the public perception of Texas is so distorted by the mainstream media. In the minds of people who live in big cities like Los Angeles or New York, Texas invokes images of tumbleweeds, cacti and dust. But that’s a description of California these days, not Texas!
Many parts of Texas are lush, with dark, rich soil that supports the easy growth of fruit trees, grapes and even bananas. I have a pear tree that’s so weighed down with delicious, honey-tasting pears that the branches droop to the ground!
Today I went harvesting and gathered bucket loads of pears and wild grapes. These arezero-effort foods requiring no cultivation at all. They weren’t sprayed with anything, so they’re 100% free of all chemical pesticides and herbicides (such as toxic glyphosate).
Now I’m busy washing and slicing all these pears, blending up amazing fresh smoothies and freezing the pear wedges for future smoothies. Given that I also grow my own lettuce greens using the Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow System that I developed (www.FoodRising.org), my trips to the grocery store are become simpler and less expensive by week!
