Do you have locally grown food? I was thinking about this last night as I went out back to get a mint leaf for my tea. In no specific order, my list goes like this:
mint – my girlfriend keeps this in the garden year round. At night I can just go out an get a leaf to drop in some hot water for an herbal tea.
poleo mint – grows wild locally, I use like the mint but has a slightly different flavor. I like it more than regular mint.
digueñes – a type of mushroom that grows in trees here in September and you collect by throwing a stick into the tree and try to know the mushrooms down to collect.
cherimoya – also known as custard-apple or sugar-apple in some parts, this is a sweet delicious fruit.
blueberries – turns out that I live in one of the best blueberry growing regions of the world. As a result, blueberries run me about 1/7th the cost of in the USA.
