Don't remember ever eating a persimmon, but will try it if I ever get the chance.  I'm always up for new food taste experiences.  I may even try one from the store, but I'm sure it will be a poor imitation of one ripened on the tree.

I would love to sit in that sunroom and enjoy the rain.  I'd like to build one on the side of my house.  

I remember in my dating years, sitting in my car with my date enjoying the rain in California.

Nice looking persimmon, Daniel! I haven't yet checked my 'possum trap this morning. I know there are a lot of persimmons on the ground after a windy and, later, stormy day yest.

I gave a bunch of persimmons to my daughter to sell at their Saturday farmers market (on the farm). When I asked her later if she sold any, she said "I didn't even put them out. They were soft and mushy." I told her that's the way they're suppose to be!

I can't find anybody else in my family that likes them. I don't think they like the soft (mushy)texture. I mean they taste like candy. I'm sure they are bad for me--so full of sugar.

My comment doesn' read the way I intended.

"Next week forecast HI 40°, Lo 30°" 

Next week's forecast is in the hi 40°s daily and in the low 30°s nightly temperatures.

In Newport, Today's Hi 59°F, expected low 42°.

Next week forecast HI 40°, Lo 30°.

Daniel, you have done a lot of work in your garden since your diagnosis; I am impressed with how much energy you have. Your baked persimmon looks delicious, did you put seasoning on it before you baked it? 

Good luck with your raccoon management, Randy and Daniel. While fun to watch, they live to steal vegetables and fruits. 

Spud, your plan to turning off the water sounds like a good one. Do you have to blow your pipes and hoses before hard frosts arrive?

Yes, I like that look/sound as well. Something de-stressing about it.

It would seem the sunroom would be a great improvement for winter's dull & drab.

I too envy Daniel's greenhouse.

It wouldn't surprise me if that possum found it's way back those 2 miles.  

It's been raining here nicely.  Two weeks ago, it rained 1.8 inch in one day.  I still haven't shut my outside water off because I may need to water my pear tree before winter comes.  I have a heavy piece of plywood on hinges over the outside water spigots, so It shouldn't freeze until there are several days of low temps in the high 20s.  When that's forecast, I'll water the pear tree, shut the water off in the basement, and put insulation around the spigot.

Caught a 'possum (cage) yesterday, baited with persimmons. Released him down the road a couple of miles.

I envy your greenhouse, Daniel. Although, along with golfing, I like to take a winter break from gardening. That's why I never had a greenhouse. Interesting looking apple.

My rain gauge totaled 2" of rain the past 3 days, with more forecast for tonight. Temps are in the 70's day time, low 60's at night--above average. No cold temperatures are predicted for the next 10 days. Nice.
