The past few days have been very windy, with fir tree needles flying in the wind.
We usually start frosty mornings in September, but there hasn't been much of that yet. We've also had bits of rain rather than snow flurries which can sometimes happen in October, but the last few years we hardly see snow until December. At the moment we are at 7*C.,- 44.6*F., & its 11:40 a.m.
Sounds like most of you have temperatures warmer than I do, especially Randy. Lucky guy!
Joan, I don't have to blow pipes to keep them from freezing. All my pipes are flexible (soaker hoses and regular hoses), so I just let them drain, and any water left in low spots just expand the flexible hoses. So far, I've had no problems, as far as I can tell.
It's rough for you peeps in the country, keeping the wildlife from eating all your food, but for me, I think it would still be preferable to living in the city.
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.
