Kim, in ref. to the persimmon discussion on the Veggie gardening group, your question about how to tell the difference between one sweet and ripe, or grainy and bitter; the sweeter ones will generally be verrrrry soft and squishy. It will look 'wet' inside instead of pulpy like a pumpkin does.
Hope you have a great trip to Israel; looking forward to seeing some photos when you return!
Good morning! Love your pictures and your gardening areas. Just beautiful! And of course the chickens too. Do they do much damage in your gardens? And what kind of kitten are you holding? So cute! Just wondering as my two sisters each have a Maine Coon.
Just loved the picture of the real rooster and the ornamental one!! Very cute! And what a lucky shot! I still haven't had a chance to view many photos as I just started working part time. I'm retired, but need more income!!!
Tell me about your chickens.......what kind are they and how long have you had chickens? I used to have them about 30 yrs. ago, many different ornamental ones. I need to build a coop, but will have to wait for that!
"Thank you Don, it is just one plant, and I had it for years. It didn't make it through this last winter, I don't know if it was the cold winter that got it, or if it was just time for it to go. I was really surprised that it lasted as long…"
"Linda, it sounds like your beautiful work in the garden really IS appreciated by your husband. I suspect your garden will be even more beautiful next year with the new perennials. Is your groundhog still around? Ours hasn't been around in long…"
