A Week of Links: Persimmon Planting Edition

We've always wanted to check out the Edible Landscaping nursery outside of Charlottesville, VA. We went down this past weekend for their persimmon festival, gorged ourselves on fruit, and came back with two persimmon trees that we have squeezed into our yard. (And a few sample fruits for the clients of Matt's Habitats to taste.) We'll post more on persimmons in a few weeks -- they're just starting to ripen up. For now, here are some things we found interesting over the last week:

And a quote for the week:

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I'd fly about the earth seeking successive autumns. - George Eliot

That squirrel memory test was more like a stubborness test & I could have told them that - they NEVER give up!

BTW did you see our Persimmon growing story in the Fall issue of Washington Gardener Magazine? Mike M at Edible Landscping always has such good advice too.

Being a person who has lived in a rural and/or wild place my entire life I always flet very disenfranchised when I visited my sister in the DC area. You have given me a whole new peerspective on the capitol region, and now I look forward to my next visit there. I hope to visit some of the areas on which you have focused.

Glad I found your blog.
