I'm planning on putting that Pomegranate Tree in a very large container that I can put outside in the spring when there is no more danger of the temperature getting below 12 degrees F, and bring in the house in the fall.

I'm also planning on building a small greenhouse with no floor that I can plant things in, like the Pomegranate Tree, so I don't have to bring them in the house in the winter.

I would appreciate any feedback on my plan to purchase this Dwarf Pomegranate Tree, Container/Patio/Bonsai size: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003EZ7UTW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?i...

I've never tasted pawpaws fruit.  I enjoy most food, but apples I can take or leave, mostly leave.  I'll buy a Granny Smith once in a while, but don't care for the soft sweet ones.  In fact, I enjoy crab apples more than Granny Smith.

I don't think I've tasted Honeycrisp, but I purchased a jug of Honeycrisp juice, and was not impressed.

When I get some land, I'll probably plant only one apple, and it will be a crab.  Just like me. : )

Got it, Joan. Thanks. And I love that photo. I'm not into that kind of lawn/garden. Just a "seed and weed" guy.

Kathy, we have pawpaw trees up here, too. I know of some in the family woods, but I've never seen actual fruit. Probably just as well. I don't like them! (And I'll eat just about anything)

Mowing and trimming that lawn would take a huge amount of time.

This is a good start, from Asta Jankuniene‎ Edible Lawns.

I would get rid of the grass. Perhaps chips or ground cover, or whatever works. I can't imagine mowing this piece of ground.

Barbara, where are you? Are you healthy and working hard on that very special piece of ground?

Pawpaw trees are commonly found growing wild in ky. I remember my gmother loved them. She said it was one of the few sweets she had as a child.

Daniel, The thought of you pollinating all those blossoms just makes my heart jump! What a lover of natural processes. Thinking of all those different varieties of fruits, blooming into the season, and producing their kind must be a sight to behold. 

Your experiment gives evidence, even as it is anecdotal.

I will take mental walks through your orchard.

Randy, I will try sending it again. Michael Pollan On Joel Salatin's Polyface Farm
