An Autumn jungle has grown in 6 weeks.
Then, after cutting back, and more to come…
So I have to say goodbye to persimmon, pomegranate, orange, quince and jujuba trees for a couple of years as they have been harshly pruned. Lucky to have one of each in the garden. Perhaps it will help keep the ants at bay.
The branches were so laden with unripe quince that they had to be propped up from touching the ground. Managed to salvage only a few by the time I returned, just enough for a quince paste making experiment.
