As one might guess I have become very interested in trees and as I allow that interest to develop I shoot more and more trees. A friend is battling lung cancer and my intention is to make her a bk of trees.
I am particularly interested in the mesquite tree. "A Pocket Guide To TREES by Rutherford Platt writes :"The most important tree from Texas to southern California". Around Tucson mesquite is well loved for its crushed seed to make pan cake mix (go ask Diane Rhoades what she thinks of mesquite pancakes). I go a woods permit to cut and collect firewood and it was from a mesquite patch up north of Oracle next to the YMCA summer camp. So I am busy studying the mesquite population.
Driving out near where Paul McCartney has a house I found mesquite which lead me to a sign for produce. I followed that to an organic farm and bought squash. (Elderberry farm) Edibles and medicinals.
went home and Peter Crown came over and we cooked his salmon and some sliced oiled squash.
