I just started fooling around, you know. Like I eat an orange or something, put a couple seeds back there--kumquats, lemons, maybe a navel orange, Satsumas, all that shit like that, you know. And I let it start to come up…And one year back there I had fifty-one tomato plants. I used to pick the tomatoes in the morning, and put them in a beer box to share…Put them in a box, let people take them…Especially the mirlitons. The mirlitons, I used to pick them and put them up there and let them take what they want. That’s all mirliton plants I got back there. And I go plant them over there. I’m gonna go plant some on the side there. I got a lemon tree outside. I got a grapefruit tree outside. I got a peach tree. Japanese plum tree. And Satsuma tree. Yeah.We're glad to be reminded of Broyard during this year of the Cultivated South.
