Uggggh, it is time to trim palm trees so my neighbor is happy :). They all have seeds now, never before!


I have a ladder, and I have an electric device, (lol) trimmer, first thing in the morning will go after them. What are these big pods good for?

    These appear to be the size of a bartlett pear....is that about right? Seriously there is no way these are edible? What a sad state of affairs that is...LOL I like to plant stuff I can eat..although so far I've had a bumper crop of pears and the squirrels have pulled them until there are very few left and they aren't even close to ripe...so I don't expect to get any this year...wish I could get rid of the squirrels!

    Surely there is some one out there knows a sure fire way to get squirrels to go somewhere else! However, I remember, as a child, grand tole us that we couldn't get any cherries from the cherry tree because my grandpa was going to put a net over it to prevent the birds from eating the cherries.
