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.
