Pawpaw Fruits and Fall Color. 10.17.18
Loam, a beautiful color of red with a background of dark coniferous trees. You pawpaw looks perfect, with no blemishes. I have never tasted one and will keep an eye open for them.
L & L do all the marketing now and I went with them this past week. I like the experience, especially if I look for something special. I assume this is the time of year to look for pawpaws in the grocery.
Thanks Mike. I'm wondering what I should do with the small plant that is growing. I think one issue is that I bought them in bags at the big box store, and they seemed injured where the tuber joins the stem. I wondered if, because of that, they were dead. Try again next year.
Here is a little fruit adventure. The first of the pawpaws. I planted these trees in 2012.
These were super sweet. Similar to banana, but something more, somehow tropical. Consistency like avocado. Nice to have had a taste, and something new.
Daniel, we used to bring the bulbs in over winter, but for the past three years we've just been leaving them in the ground. Got about a 75% comeback rate this year.
Nice maple tree.
Fall is so colourful.
The gardening season is winding down for Fall. Probably not a lot to take photos of, at least outdoor garden. Here's a maple that we planted in 2012. The trunk had a huge gash, and the new growth didn't completely cover the wound until this year. But now it looks OK.
Sorry for typos.
I second it - gorgeous dahlias BB! Do you dig them in fall and store the tubers? Or leave in ground?
I was puttering and saw that one I planted last spring finally grew. About a foot tall now!
Joan, thanks for the permaculture inspirations. Wow, in the desert! Im sure I've said - maybe not, I'm forgetful - I use some petmaculture concepts as guidance and inspiration, but would not call myeself a permaculturist. Also, some of the concepts take more effort, and I get tires and sore; or acceptance of untidiness that my neighbors disapprove of. Plus, deer and rabbits.
Some gallardias, still blooming! No watering all summer! Untouched by herbivores! I ordrted seeds for dome other colors. According to the packet, they can be planted Spring or Fall. I think I will try early Spring or late winter indoors.
And I thought MY garden was rocky! Perhaps there's hope yet. Thanks, Joan.
Enjoyed that video, Joan.
