Just a quick update…
The persimmon trees are doing well!
So one persimmon tree is under the privet tree. It isn’t under the bird feeders I keep in the privet tree, but apparently some of the birds like to hang out above it. I’m a little concerned about the bird poop on the persimmon leaves, but I don’t think it is a big enough deal to worry about.
I was also concerned that the privet tree would be keeping the persimmon in the shade, but the shade is only there through the midday. The persimmon is getting morning and afternoon sunlight.
Still, the days the privet tree has left are definitely numbered!
The blossoms on the persimmon are smaller than I thought they would be.
