Friday on the farm

Friday on the farm

Onions nearly ready to harvest. Persimmon grafts (the ones that took anyway) growing like gangbusters, and a hint of red on the buckeyes. A beautiful Friday on the farm!

Can you provide details on your buckeye? I love the red contrast with the green leaves and would plant some to get that effect, but Googleing on buckeye and later Aesculus and 'color' got me yellow instead of red.

Mitakeet --- We have lots of wild buckeyes in our woods. They often produce little patches of red leaves throughout the summer, but now that you mention it, I can't actually remember what color the overall trees turn in the fall. It's possible that they do end up yellowish then instead of red. Sorry I can't be more helpful!
