Jimbo

Patrice and Jeff’s brother, Jim, joined us on the island for a few days.  We had  fun watching his excitement as he discovered all the unique features of the island and Florida.  This was his first time down there.

Jimbo is INTERESTED (all caps for emphasis!!!!!) in edible wild plants.  He is passionate about that topic, crazy for information on this topic.   But tropical plants are a whole new universe for him.  He was full of  questions and requests for us to “google”  when we couldn’t satisfy his curiosity.

At his urging, I ate one a prickly pear “tuna”.  They were not quite ripe, and little too tangy for my taste buds.  Jim was happy I gave it a try though!

The “tunas” are the red fruits growing out of the cactus:
