Persimmon Tree Updates. 6.6.18
Very different looking, Daniel. I had a Venus Fly Trap years ago,,,interesting plant.
Randy, you've got your family working hard! And they will have a beautiful heritage, when the trees are mature.
Since they are unusual, here is my collection of carnivorous plants. Most are American pitcher plant (Sarracenia), native to the Southeast USA although the red leaf grows much further North. So far they have been easy to grow. They are perennials, so i don't expect full size for another year or two. The are outside, in full sun, in basins containing about one inch of water. They can't tolerate much mineral content, so I give them saved rainwater.
Welcome Gnome! We need a little infusion around here.
Let's see if I can add a photo of "my girls" who do the transplanting while I drive the tractor.
The second photo shows several things: newly planted trees (flagged), a couple of transplanted rows, greenhouses, etc.
The Chilliwack area outside of Vancouver BC, is well known for corn, but Soda Creek has it beat by far. It even freezes well too.
Patricia, the Soda Creek Sweet Corn sounds yummy; wish they would reveal the variety they grow.
I'm still looking for extra-early sweet corn. Our growing season is far too short.
Just outside of Williams Lake, a farm grows the absolute best corn we've ever tasted, but they won't tell what kind.
People who drive can pick their own, but our local stores bring it in for purchase too, so we can get it in town. I haven't tasted one better.
I think some new sweet corns are better in Northwestern climate than most of the older types. I read that sweet corn just plain doesnt grow here so didnt try for many years. I have good success with Trinity planted earlier and Bodaceous when the soil is fully warm. I think both are se type. I tried Mirai which is synergistic, too sweet and no corn flavor. I have not tried a sh type.
types of sweetcorn
This is Rick's first attempt at corn so it'll be interesting to see how it does.
Patricia, thanks for the link to

Randy, planting those poplar, oaks, nuts, fruit, and evergreen trees on your "farm that's been in our family for over 150 years" leaves a legacy all can admire and enjoy.
