On my walk today, I found a tamarind tree with low-hanging fruit, so picked one of the smallest pods and munched it down. It was at the perfect stage of dryness, crunchy on the outside and gooey inside, with a sweet-and-sour flavor. The seeds are extremely hard! I tossed it on a spot that gets watered as evidenced by the amount of grass growing. Perhaps there will be a tamarindo growing there someday.

I also found a ripe (but not too ripe -- they get tough and leathery) Coast Almond fruit and ate it. Another keeper.

Bought some 0000 grade steel wool for testing with my firesteel and batteries.
