The Best Thing My Garden Has Ever Given Me

I HAVE DRAGONFRUITS, PEOPLE!!!! After what has seemed like months and months and months and months (it actually has been since early October when the first buds appeared), I FINALLY have real, ripe, edible dragonfruits.

I’ve grown quite a few different edibles in my garden, but none have been as rewarding, or exciting, as the two beautiful, perfect dragonfruits that I pulled off my cactus a few days ago.

I’m super proud that this came to fruition. (Or should I say FRUITition…) My dragonfruit cactus and I have been through a lot, including two moves (one across an apartment complex, one across states), many sketchy trellises that were adequate at best (including literally just tying the branches to a fence…), root rot, and poorly executed hair cuts, to name a few. So the fact that I was able to successfully cultivate these fruit is beyond stellar to me.

I’ll do a full blog post on the entire process of bud to fruit in the future, but for now I’m just excited and enjoying what is arguably the prettiest fruit in existence.

      Gardening is a balancing act between active persitence and passive patience and it seems like you are great at gardening! Congratulations for the fruits of your labor.

        Thank you! I like your phrasing, active persistence and passive patience.
