On frosty winter mornings I love to take a stroll through our coffee plantation. she jokes.
We do have some coffee trees. About 12 or so I'd say. So it's more of a coffee grove than a plantation. Nicely tucked away behind the garage and very nicely screening off our neighbours.
No I haven't made coffee. ... and no I'm not planning it at the moment. Maybe one day in the foreseeable future.
I have investigated all the steps involved, and whilst it would be lovely to drink our own organic coffee ... at this point in time it just seems like a lot of effort for a small result.
However, I am very fond of the coffee trees. Their lovely dark glossy green leaves, sweeping symmetrical branches bearing beautiful white flowers, and these lovely shiney red coffee beans.
One day too I might be very fond of the coffee they produce.
Linking up with Hazels' Winter Wednesdays. Put the kettle on and hop on over.
Cheers for now - Wendy
My response to previous comments -
Kim - it definitely isn't broccoli, but that's a good point about the cross plant. Hadn't thought of that one. Will keep you posted. In the meantime it is still growing madly.
delia hornbook - that's all right Dee, we don't either! Thanks for the comments on the holiday snaps.
saving for travel - thanks, Caloundra is lovely. The gateway to the Sunshine Coast about 1.5 hours north of Brisbane. Beautiful spot.
