Wonderful Wild Fruits

by Courtney on July 28, 2008

It is the season of wild fruit here!!!

Saguaro fruit season has come and gone, being it is a very small window of time. This year I didn’t get out to picking any, but i did have some dried fruit a friend had picked and OH is it amazing. I have to say it is one of the tastiest fruits I have had.

I often walk up on the ‘Mesa‘ – one of the higher elevations here in Patagonia, which provides absolutely beautiful views out miles and miles in many directions. I recently found a mulberry tree on one of my walks. Most of the berries aren’t ripe yet, but every time I walk/run there, which is most every day, I pick a few of the ripe ones.. mm..

We also have a giant peach tree on the TOL property, which provided us with fantastic, golf ball sized peaches for many weeks. Small and flavor filled :) We just finished off the last of them – and there were a lot.

Lastly, we are now coming into Prickly Pear season, which is awesome. It means that the Tree of Life Cafe has a period full of fuchsia purple nut mylks and other crazy purple smoothies and juices. I ran out of aloe, but you can bet I am planning on experimenting with aloe/prickly pear/cherry/gogi smoothies, ooooooooh yeah.. think of the color on that one..

SoOoOoo, it is fruitfully abundant in southern Arizona!

On another note, I had a VERY interesting thing go on for me for about a week and a half which just ended recently. After one of my meditations I started to have this sensation on the very top of my head – It always felt like there was a bug buzzing around or that the top of my head was being brushed by some leaves. For several days I’d reach up to find nothing there.. and as soon as I removed my hand the strange sensation came back. I finally figured it was just some interesting crown chakra movement, and just let it be. It went away finally, but was quite an intriguing experience :) Thus far the two chakras I have felt absolutely without a doubt were my third eye chakra, and now my crown chakra.

Fabulously fruiting,
