The Papayas are now speeding up their growth as warm weather approaches. I usually use Knee-length hoisery to protect them against fruit-flies but Walmart has run out them for awhile now, so I’ve had to make my own out of frost blankets.
BUT yesterday, I discovered … oops! wrong size
Lesson learned: Treat Papayas like growing kids ~ safer to sew their “wear” 2 sizes bigger, when slipping them on after confirmed pollination, just in case.
The next time I see knee length hoisery on sale, I’m going to buy them by the dozens!! Nothing like the good old knit to fit.
