weather or not... and good news

we never have weather in southwest florida that proximates the weather in mid-texas as described by jesse and pam. it gets uncomfortably warm--mid to high 90s [as it is right now]--but it's never gotten to 100 in my experience, although i think the record high is something like 102.

the good news is, as soon as it cools off this evening, i'm going to harvest our lychee crop. they are ripe and large and juicy and sweet and wonderful--maybe the lychee is best of all fruit [i think so]. growing lychees might not be possible here if it wasn't for our hot, sultry climate. they seem to withstand some freeze, however, but not a lot.

tomorrow, we will determine how much of this largesse to ship off to relatives up north and how much to, well, just sit in the shade, peel, and eat. an acquaintance says "at my house, ripe lychees never make it as far as the kitchen." if you've ever had them, you know why.
