I have harvested "wild" plants, seems that they had a better taste, maybe because they were "free".

I've been replacing my decorative landscaping trees, the ones just planted for green effects and shade, with fruit trees. 12 down and 8 to go. I like the idea that I can get the same benefits of a tree with an abundance of fruit and nuts with very little increase in maintenance.

We've also been experimenting with varieties of fruiting shrubs and vines. It's tough in the desert to find varieties that produce in such conditions, but we're finding them.

Rick, it's so true the urban people do not want to be bothered by fruit trees. Some yards have fruit trees but are usually the recipient of many colorful words over the summer because of the unused fruit causing such a mess on their pristine yard. My neighbor had the best pear tree and cut it down because he didn't like the way it attracted bees. Their dog was allergic to bee stings. The fruit from city trees hardly ever get used. To be quite honest I didn't know that fruit trees would even grow in Las Vegas. The only thing I thought you could harvest was maybe a coconut from the palm trees. It's kind of sad to hear that the Mormons, that have always been noted for their being prepared, are losing that heritage. I believe we all need to start thinking about being prepared a little more just a couple for days. What do you think?
