Some of these pictures were taken last year and some this year, but climbing trees and returning home with a load of free supplies has been a richly rewarding part of our time in Spain. Surprisingly, avocados are not that cheap here, despite trees every where, but luckily they leave a lot on the trees, so we feast all winter on them. We're organic gentleman farmers at heart, so this connection to the land also fulfills our souls.
The avocados are so plentiful and they are as fun to eat as they are to gather & we use them many ways.
I always like to tease Mozart and tell her that she is part monkey as she has always loved to climb whether it's to the top of trees, mountains or even the kitchen or motorhome cabinets! We often take these little forays into the countryside after school and sometimes on weekends.
Mozart loves to gather wild flower bouquets and herbs as well as we wonder and walk the land.
Nutritious food, fun adventure, walking the land, exercise and saving money...what could be better?
