Randy, I don't know the answer to your question about "apostrophe in 'farmers'". This is what I found: 

Check grammar for ”I'm going to give persimmons to sell at the farmers market.”


”No issues found. Grammarly ran hundreds of checks on your text and found no writing issues.”

University of New Hampshire

”Selling Successfully at a Farmers Market”

Randy, nice pic.  It's interesting how different we can be from our relatives.  I know I am.  Although sometimes I'm surprised by things we share.

Spud, glad you got some rain.  We are heading into the rainy season too. 

I was looking at garlic planting, surprised it can be planted in sept.  Some writers say as late as nov but oct is better.  So will plant it, probably, tomorrow.  Unless it's pouring.

Nice picture of you Randy.

It finally rained here.  0.08 inch yesterday morning and 0.24 inch last night, with more in the forecast.  Of course, it comes with cold weather.

No freezing temperatures yet, but it did get close enough a week ago to nip a few of the leaves on my tomato plants.  Tomatoes are still green and probably won't get ripe before frost hits.  Hope to have enough ambition to plant them earlier next year.

Daniel, thank Ning for the translation! Cool to now know what it says. I was surprised to read many signs written in English throughout China. Case in point: I didn't eat their dumplings, however.

What I did eat was catfish last night. A local restaurant specializes in deep fried foods, typical midwestern unhealthy food. Little wonder my 3 brother cousins are all obese:

That's me in front.

Thanks BB!  That sounds delicious!

I think, if there are enough persimmons, or if there are some nice ones at the market, I might make a small batch of persimmon jam.  That way I have it through the year.  Or not.  I have too much jam made already.

Randy, Ning says,

"Mr. Chia Yong Shin and Ms. Huang Kui S. Dried Persimmon Stand."

I've been finding various feces around the property that I can't identify.  I think it's also Raccoon but there are other creatures, including reports of wildcats.  There have been dead raccoons on the road, too. 

Joan, I think Cosmos might work out nicely for you too.  Maybe.  I planted them much later, but still got some nice bloom.  There are red, pink, white, and a different species of yellow.  My yellow ones have not bloomed yet.

Patricia, thank you for the nice comment!

Thanks Bertold. I may have to try your recipe. 

I usually make persimmon pudding each Thanksgiving. Even my persimmon hating SIL likes it.

On one of my walks, I found coon poop with persimmon seeds. I was far far away from my house and wonder where the tree is. Surely not mine.

And no, Daniel, I didn't buy or eat any of the Chinese persimmons. Could you have Ning translate the sign?

We usually make this for Thanksgiving.

Persimmon Pudding


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 t. soda
  • ¼ t. salt
  • ¼ t. cinnamon

Mix with:

  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup persimmon pulp
  • 1 t. vanilla

Steam or bake one hour

Lemon Sauce

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3 tablespoons boiling water
  • Large lemon

Juice one large lemon and grated rind. Bring sugar, water, juice & butter to a boil to dissolve sugar. Then in a double boiler stir in the egg and whisk till smooth. (You have to be careful with this or you’ll get egg flower lemon sauce – not appetizing, I found out the hard way.)
