a Banana, and My Trees

Ben and Bonnie’s banana turned yellow overnight. I got these two weeks ago. Green green green green eat me NOW.

A selection of the pictures I took for the arborist at the garden center who was a lovely woman and after our 20 minute conversation discussing my ailing trees, she said “be sure to let me know how it turns out” to which I replied “you can count on it!”.

The kumquat. Planted wrong, excavate to the edge of the leaves, water only once a week more deeply, don’t let the sprinklers hit the tree, add more iron in 6 weeks. The yellow leaves are doomed but the new growth should be nice and green.

The persimmon. Planted wrong, excavate to the edge of the leaves, water only once a week more deeply, don’t let the sprinklers hit the tree, fertilize at the end of summer, don’t worry about the falling fruit.
