They are all over the place: lounging on my patio chairs and tables; filling the double sink in my kitchen; commandeering the shelves in my refrigerator; and I just finished filling a laundry basket with the ones I picked from one of my trees today. The composter is brimming with the discarded peels and seeds of the many that have already been consumed or frozen for later use. I have gained weight feasting on them and I’m trying to cut back from eating two a day, to one. It was only a year ago that I was mango-poor and would delight when any of my friends with mango trees would give me some of their delicious fruits. Now, having moved to a house with 3 mango trees, I get to be the one to give the prize away. Yay! Life is sweet.
