My husband and the kids, tomatos and a papaya question!!!!
My husband with the pets! Look at that cute Doozey tucked into what we call the "Maximum Security Position"!!! This is where she likes to go during rain or storms! Baby, the cat, likes to take his heavy self (you may know how heavy a cat feels when the weight of his feet are on you) right up on your chest.
Today was rainy and the garden plants got a lot of water! Yeah!!!
Have you all seen these little tiny tomato plants that make a ton of little cherry tomatoes...that you can grow in a windowsill, cause the plants are so small??? They have some at my Lowes right now, and I think I must go back and buy one! I just ate a half package of grape tomatos for my midnight snack! YUM! It would be nice to grow my own midnight snacks!!! LOL.
Now, here is my Mom's second papaya off her trees! This was, I believe, her first time growing them, and she planted them from seed, which is impressive. She has, I want to say, 5 trees! Three of them are covered with blooms and early fruits. The first fruit she took off, was chilled and cut....and tasted like (and I'm not kidding)...tasted like butternut squash!!! This is so strange! For a minute, we wondered if it really was a papaya tree!!! LOLOL. Now, I know it must be something in the soil that makes it taste like this, but my question is...what can we do to the soil at this point to make the fruit actually taste like Papaya??? Any ideas???
Thanks in advance!!!
