Fun fact from the farm: There's a volunteer papaya plant growing out of the waste heap on the edge of the garden. I haven't revealed my location here, but let me assure you, I do not live in papaya growing territory. The plant is about five feet tall, and has four pieces of fruit forming out of thick waxy white flowers. It looks very exotic.

The farmers have a solid reputation as local foods evangelists. Imagine the surprise on the faces of those who eat a dish they make using a "local" papaya!

I wish some papayas would volunteer to grow for me!

That's pretty cool that a papaya would volunteer to grow!
