It was very interesting to read all the information pod! I have seen many people at youtube, posting videos of fruit trees they start from seeds, they probably don't know that these trees probably will never produce for them. They assume that since trees come from seeds, then fruit will also come from these, which is not the case. My father has all kinds of fruit trees at the village, but not me, sigh, I live in the city, luckily my dad sends me many of this fruit often and I can enjoy these! :)
For the excess fruit, one can use them to make jams and sweets!
In some Native languages the term for plants translates to "those who take care of us."

You are so fortunate to have your Father share the fresh fruits of his labors.

I grew two grapefruit trees from seed. They were magnificent but never delivered a bloom. The good thing is some of the caterpillars that become beautiful butterflies loved to dine on the leaves. Of course I would share as the trees were only ornamental with no fruit.
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
