More Blessings from a wise God :o)

Sometimes we think we should have everything when we plan it...and most often it's not the right time...
No need to tell you all how much I fretted that the garden was ruined by the deer or weather or neglect when we both were down...and God only knows what happened to the pears on the the tree (that was loaded) ..perhaps the deer came and ate them or maybe the Angels came and plucked them off to save for next year ( how do you like that thought :o)....I should be happy that they weren't there for me to put away! I didn't have the strength to do them Cecil couldn't help me in any way either..and God knows my kids cared less!! They only want to know that Pears are in the Supermarket when they want them.!!...With all the canning I did around them when they were young...they weren't bitten by the "canning bug"..
I have run off with the pen...when all I wanted to show and tell you how good God has been to me...here it is September and the Persimmon Tree has given me a bumper first crop of Persimmons :o) I'm smiling from ear to ear...I love Persimmons and Harris Teeter is charging $2.99 each for them and they aren't as large and beautiful as mine :o)....God is good and knows just what you need and when ...in his or her own time :o)
So we did have a farmer's touch after all...

Not yet Jilly, don't encourage the "not yet peaked" I still get too tired for what needs to be done. The Persimmon goodies sounds weight gaining and I'm not resisting them :o)...Ginny

Aw this was such a sweet post, Ginny. You really made me smile with this. I hope you enjoy those beautiful persimmons. You certainly deserve to. I've been thinking of you and hope you and Cecil are continuing to grow stronger and feel better.

I've never had persimmons before, but those sure do look pretty.

The Persimmons have ripened on the window sill..and I've been
"tasting" them as they ripen..the taste is excellent..sweet and juicy
but...I notice that a " tart film"
is present after doing so..I don't eat the skin (too hard for me to chew)...anyone know about the film?
maybe I took them off the tree too soon...Ginny
