|36. Dovyalis, a form of gooseberry, is planted along the fence lines. The posts, as can be seen by the dark stain above the ground, have been treated with preservative, but the hot and wet climate causes wood posts to rot in 5-6 years. The 3000 dovyalis cuttings planted by Sebastian will grow up around the posts and fencing to form an impenetrable bramble thicket along the fence line within 2 years, creating a permanent barrier to intrusion by animals that would threaten the mpingos planted within - Dec. 1998.
