This time last week, Mum and I travelled down to Mullumbimby to visit John and Lyndall Picone, and their beautiful property, lush with organic produce and exotic fruits. John grows over 400 varieties of fruits, including exotics such as Vanilla Bean, Custard apples, Figs, Apples, Peaches and apricots. Such a selection had our taste buds buzzing the entire visit.
Our friend Julian from Mockingbird, came along for the visit (Julian knew John beforehand).
Such an amazing opportunity, I thought it a must to take 1001 photos. We thank John for the visit, and his incredible expertise in growing. Such an enlightening and humbling visit, I have nothing but good things to say about this man. We could talk all day, of all topics. There seems to be endless learnings in this field, such is the nature and complexity of living plants. It's an exciting journey to say the least!
If you're a passionate foodie and feel like treating yourself to the tastiest fruits you'll ever enjoy, head to the Byron, New Brighton or Mullum markets. Here you'll find John and Lyndall :)
