Eating loquats

Emmaline named this website after the loquat tree that we planted in our back garden, about two and a half years ago. I had dug the hole for it, about a metre deep. At the bottom, well into the layer of clay that our garden rests on I had found a medallion celebrating the coronation of George VI.  

This year is the first that the tree has fruited, and today the loquats were finally ripe enough to pick and eat. So this afternoon Nelleke, Anouk and I sat in the sun in our back garden eating our delicious logan berries and loquats. I call the tree "mama's loquat tree".
