It Has Been Some Time...Hi!

Category: Container Gardening | Posted: Fri Nov 27, 2020 4:50 am

So, I haven't been up to much since the disappointment of losing out on the allotment. Like many people, I've been avoiding Covid-19 and just maintaining as much as I could under the circumstances.


Imagine my shock when I opened the door one day and found about 30 lbs worth of fruit sitting on my doorstep. Included in this gift from on high were plantains and Pitaya. Neither of which I've had the pleasure of exposure to before. So, of course, everything with seeds from pineapple to Pitaya is getting planted in soil.


This is the Pitaya fruit.

The thing is I've previously grown Pineapple. I might not grow those right away, if at all. Pitaya, on the other hand, looks like an interesting plant and it has been some time since I last had a cactus in my possession. The Pitaya is already in the soil and (hopefully) germinating. I'm still on the fence about the pineapple.

Who left the fruit?

@Frank I have no clue. I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth though. It came at a time when it was sorely needed.

Thank the heavens for unexpected gifts!
