It’s that time of year. The time when my dad hands me about a dozen persimmons off of his tree and we scoop it up and eat it like pudding. As I mentioned last year, rumor had it there was a second variety of persimmon tree in the side yard. I noticed it for the first time this year as I saw tons of fruit hanging from the small tree, this time with the smaller squatter variety that you can peel and eat like an apple. We didn’t get any from the crop as we were told they weren’t particularly sweet this year. Maybe next year. And my dad’s newest fruit tree experiment? Yuzu…from the seeds of a friends tree.
The vegetable and flower gardens are done for this year, but here are photos of the last of the flowers. Winter is coming.
