One of my reasons for changing my website over to WordPress was to make it easier to include pictures in posts.  So, look!  Pictures!  Behold my tiny trees!

I backed a Kickstarter project called Pawpaw: The story of America’s forgotten fruit.  One of my rewards was a packet of three ready-to-plant seeds.  I got myself thee pots and some potting soil and planted my seeds.  Then I waited.  And waited.  Then, the first plant sprouted.  Then, the second followed.  The third hasn’t sprouted yet, but I’m holding out a small bit of hope.  Even if it doesn’t, two out of three really isn’t bad, considering I’ve never really grown anything from seed before.

It’s going to be quite a while before they start bearing fruit, but I think they’re off to a good start.
