A star apple (carambola). Not quite ready yet.

Link to the main revenue source. Let’s leave the Carlos Slim rant for another time.

Chaya, in front of and next to the dwarf coconut tree that has yet to produce.

Lemons. Looks like it will be a good crop this year.

Otoes. The greens are eaten. The roots are a national starch staple.

One of the sweeter of several varieties of peppers on this little farm.

Fish for sale out of this pickup truck. A couple of bucks richer and the cats would be happier.
