Persimmon Tree Updates. 6.6.18
That's an interesting selection of tomatoes Daniel. One of these years I'll try some kinds other than settling for the volunteer ones that pop-up every year.
Not only are tomatoes delicious, but they're so good for you. And so many varieties to grow and taste. I love the little cherries, especially the "chocolate" ones. Your photo, Daniel, makes my mouth water!
Daniel, those are beauties! Wonderful crop. You deserve to be very proud.
Joan, that structure adjacent to the sunflowers (see photo) has no name. I cobbled it up with spare wood and metal (roof). It's my "reflection spot", overlooking my garden. Maybe I should call it my smoke house, now that I bought some pipe tobacco yesterday. I haven't smoked for I don't know how long--20 years? But the urge hit me. I figured every once in awhile, at my age, it shouldn't really harm me. Hmmm.
Joan, the Rose of Sharon picture is from Daniel's blog.
After you asked that question, I realized I should have said that, and maybe got Daniel's permission to post it here.
I also love the color and pattern.
Chris, your "sauerkraut is good with blue cheese and mushrooms" sound delicious. I like each one of those flavors; I have never tried them together.
Randy, having the space to allow a huge clump of sunflowers is a real asset. Yours is so pretty and the room beside it must be a wonderful place to sit. Is it a porch? or a gazebo type structure? I am guessing they are at least 10 feet high or more.
Spud, your photo of Rose of Sharon is so pretty. Is that a plant in your garden, or in Daniel's? I will have to look into that plant to see if it will fit in my jungle. I love the color and pattern.
Yes, when I first saw the blossoms, they looked like the Washington Hawthorn blossoms of my tree. I planted mine after a trip to Ireland where Washington Hawthorns were grown as hedgerows, forming beautiful and fragrant separation of roads from fields and between fields. They are fragile trees, break easily in a wind storm and that is how mine died. Not to worry though, there are lots of sprouts running in all directions to restore your broken tree if it happens to yours. It is a lovely tree and I am glad you have one, even if it is considered a weed. Bee songs emanate from it in a lovely, constant hum.
Daniel, did you ever find the name of the tree on your property that you described in Comment by Sentient Biped on May 9, 2013 at 9:39pm
"Any ideas as to identity of this tree? I don't know. It reminds me of spirea, but much bigger. There is a row of them on a neglected area on my property. They are near a creek that runs in ..."
