Growing local

Lordy how I love this pretty plant with it's delicious fruit two or three times a year. Turns out it does have a pest though. About a dozen fruit were infested with little caterpillars.

I eat them! Usually sitting on the grass and throwing the skins and seed into the garden. It's like popping a grape into your mouth.
