I was daydreaming. Beautiful memories of home. My mother used to grow a lot of tropical fruits and vegetables in her garden. Bananas and jackfruits and mangoes and papayas and guavas and rose apples. Spinach, coconut, pepper, bitter gourd, tomato, chili, tapioca and taro. And still more, depending on the season. She was happy to cook the freshly plucked vegetables from her garden. And we were happy to eat.
