Me too, & everything tastes so much better! We have melons in the greenhouse which should be ready soon....they freeze well too. Those cabbages look great!

Comment by Don yesterday

Cabbages, peppers, melons.

Comment by Don yesterday

Wonderful, Patricia!  This time of the year when I visit the supermarket, I really like skipping the whole produce aisle.

Comment by Idaho Spud yesterday

That's great Patricia! 

Comment by Patricia on Monday

Sink full of peppers, & this is #5! I am washing, cutting, & freezing like mad & my husband is sharing with 3 neighbor houses as well. The best crop ever!

Comment by Randall Smith on Monday

Don, probably 80% of my persimmons go to "waste". With the other 20%, I eat, freeze whole, and make paste. (There's an unintended rhyme there! Now to throw in a sentence with the word "taste".)

Fortunately, persimmons hang on the tree well into winter, extending the eating season a long time.

Daniel, patience! I started my trees from seeds.

Comment by Don on Sunday

What do you do with all of your persimmons? 

Comment by Sentient Biped on Sunday

Randall, some day I may have loaded persimmon trees too.  I have two - one is Saijo, listed as most likely to bear in my cool climate, and the other is an unusual asian/american hybrid from Ukraine, "Nikita's Gift".  both established well this year, with Saijo now about 7 feet tall and Nikita growing from a little twig to maybe 4 feet tall.  I can hope.

 

No American persimmons though.  I would consider one if there was a variety with male and female grafted onto the same tree, but two trees and not knowing if I will ever eat the fruit is a stretch.  Especially with paw paws that I may never get to eat, either.

Corn will mature at a predictable rate following pollination.  If the plantings were close enough to one another so that they could all tassel out within a couple weeks of each other and so be pollinated when ready, they'd mature together.

Comment by Idaho Spud on Sunday

Gardening is mysterious Randy.  Perhaps the corn maturing at nearly the same time is because the ones planted after it was warmer, grew faster and matured faster.
