The hot summer is over ~ thank goodness!
Finally, the Papaya trees are showing their joy … and I mean real joy. So far, there are 6 trees bearing fruit (at different stages) and 5 with blooms.
Yes, I’ve run out of hosiery for my poor fruits & definitely need more. 😦
To give an idea of their average size, I took a photo with my hand sort of holding the base of the fruit.
And now come the questions ~ Does anyone know where I can get really cheap knee length hosiery? Internet? Walmart? Or is there a better way of protecting papaya from fruitflies & wasps, yet allowing each fruit to get to its maximum size? (I estimate needing about 30 pairs of nylon stockings, heck! I don’t buy that many even for myself!) All advice will be really appreciated.
