Kiwi for gardening

24 May

May 2018:  Last year’s great expectations deflated.  Here we “grow” again!  Our perennial kiwi vine has a strong start for this season.  It is front and center in the photo below with four vines.  So far, the longest one is over three feet long.

May 2017:  Yesterday, we were pleasantly surprised to find potted “Hardy Kiwi” for $12 at Cox’s Plant Farm.  I thought kiwi grew on trees like apples or cherries.  It is a vine that prefers a trellis to support perhaps 100 fruit.  We’ll let you know how we did.

    I enjoyed reading your piece. I did know the fruit grew on a vine. I am glad you are sticking with it. I am not growing hot peppers this year as they have got worse over the last several years with last year being the worst. It is cheaper and easier if I go by them than grow them with all the time and work that you put in to them. It is the weather just like what you are dealing with and the fact there are less honey bees to pollinate the plants. You wrote something up my alley.
