358 Indiana Banana's and Persimmon's.....
Corn and the Soybeans looking like a good crop but also the PAW PAW's or some call the Indiana Banana. They are gorgeous and I can almost taste them now. They are delicious a very soft custard like fruit, very very good. The native Americans I believe must have loved the fall with these wild fruit like Paw Paw's and Persimmons so plentiful.

We could have used a lot more rain this year to make things perfect so to speak. But I guess that does not happen to often. But we have had small timely rains that have produced good corn and soybean crops. Enough so that I think as the blog title says that there will also be a season of Naples in my rotation this winter. I get the crops harvested and then we will sometime head south to the land of the adult playground to enjoy the sun and surf and the great friends that we share our time with in that wonderful town.
