The Best Rose #Blossom, #Flowers, #Fruit, #Garden

Although, for geographic and climatic reasons, we no longer grow the roses we once did there is one species of rose that we would/will always find a space for. The small flowers only last about a week and, sadly, are easily damaged by rain or wind but they are a light while they are here and for the rest of the summer we enjoy the red-tinged leaves.

Snapshot taken at an awkward angle while on a foray into the lush greenery of the forest garden in my back yard.

Still remaining verdant and fruitful after nearly a month with no rain, and no watering, on light free draining poor soil, this shows what can be achieved with #agroforestry methods.

The result is a system that needs very few inputs and keeps delivering through drought, flood, storm and uncertainty. A true resource for the community.

In Trowbridge, Wiltshire, an orchard has been planted in a cemetery. The Friends of Down Cemetery helped organise the process, raising funds and planting the trees. Even a local woodturning club made the dedicatory plaque. It might not be 700k trees, but every local project adds up and I think it's particularly nice that they've thought about planting fruit trees that the public will be able to access for food.

Still-Life with Crayfish, Oysters, and Fruit (late 1600s or early 1700s) by a follower of #Flemish painter Cornelis de Heem (1631–1695).
The porcelain bowl in this painting most likely came from China. Political turbulence in China effectively eliminated ceramic imports to the West by the 1640s, so the bowl would have been considered at least as valuable as the gold object on the table.

Grapes On The Vine

This image is a closeup of a bundle of grapes hanging from a grapevine in Napa Valley.
The image was composed to frame the in focus grapes with out of focus leafs from the vine. 
The foreground leaf is slightly blurry and is showing signs of the coming winter as the edge of the leaf is turning red, yellow and orange.
The grapes themselves are plump and full with a beautiful deep blue color. They are ripe and ready to pick. 
The background in this image is also some out of focus leafs from the vine.

I counted at least six flower buds on my 3yo black sapote when the 1st fruit hasn’t even ripened. 🙈 This tree sets fruit by apomixis, very unusual for Diospyros nigra.

In other news Bunnytrix Hopper has jilted me for my neighbor’s lawn. Are my weeds not good enough anymore? 😭 There is no satisfying these rabbits.

A plump round black sapote. The fruit is shiny and green with white speckles. There are a few black specks as well. The background is faded green from leaves. 

You know the fruit is ready to pick when the calyx has lifted off the fruit and it hasn’t done so yet.
A close up of two baby black sapote flower buds. One is in focus towards the top and the other is out of focus and towards the bottom of the pic. They are emerging from the corner of a single leaf for each bud on a green stem. The flowers look like a tiny green ball with two leaves holding it in place. In the background are dark glossy mature leaves. The foreground leaves are new and lighter green.

The fate of the last strawberry of the season...never to ripen.

Hmmm, I wonder if the seeds mature enough to be viable, even if the fruit doesn't colour up... Does anyone know?

I'm prompted to post this by @Snarkypeds's post of some waffles with strawberries. They looked delicious, and this is too. It's the best thing I know to do with fresh fruit. It's a simple 2-layer yellow cake. The egg whites are reserved to make meringues atop each layer, & the meringues themselves are topped with nuts. All of the batter, meringue, & nut layers are cooked at the same time, then layered with fresh fruit & whipped cream. #cake #cooking #baking #fruit #JamesBeard

Blitz Küchen 

1/2 cup butter 
1/2 cup sugar 
3 egg yolks 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla 
1/3 cup milk 
1 1/4 cups sifted cake flour 
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
3 egg whites 
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice or 1/4 
   teaspoon cream of tartar 
1/2 cup sugar 
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, almonds, 
   pecans, or filberts 
2 or 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen fruit, 
   sliced strawberries, or whole 
1/2 to 1 cup whipping cream 

   One of the best cakes for accommodating fresh or frozen fruits, such as peaches, apricots, strawberries, or raspberries.  
   Cream the butter, then cream in the sugar until very light.  Beat in the egg yolks and vanilla.  Add the milk alternately with the sifted dry ingredients. This will make a stiff batter.  Spread in two greased and floured 8-inch cake pans.  It will make a thin layer.  Beat the egg whites until frothy.  Add the lemon juice or cream of tartar.  Slowly beat in the sugar and beat until well blended and stiff and the sugar is dissolved.  Spread in swirls on the cake batter.  Sprinkle with nuts and bake in a 350-degree oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until the cake shrinks from sides of pan.  Remove to a rack.  When cool, loosen the cake from one pan and turn meringue side down on a plate.  Sprinkle with fruit and dot with whipped cream.  Put on the other layer meringue side up.  Decorate the top with spoonfuls of whipped cream and garnish the center with fruit.

'Encouraging creative theft'.
Would this work in USAnian cities? Certainly in some neighborhoods.
Photo text excerpt from #BillMollison's autobiography, Travels In Dreams.
#UrbanPermaculture #fruit #UrbanFarming #Rewilding #GuerillaHorticulture

Photo text excerpt from #BillMollison's autobiography, Travels In Dreams.
"In 1979, I had persuaded the South Melbourne council to plant fruit trees in public places. The old Scots city engineer who agreed to do this remembered that in his training courses he had been told never to plant useful trees in public places. 'We accepted that as law, he mused, 'and now I wonder why?'. That evening, we set out twenty or so fruit trees at the entrance to the council chambers. Next day, they had all been dug out and removed; stolen. 
'Good,' says I. 
'How's that?' says the engineer.
'We don't have to plant, water, or tend them now.'
This made so much sense, we were able to lose a few thousand trees in one season, just by putting out the pots near empty holes (they were easier to steal, and in better condition). In time the thefts tapered off, and we could safely plant some ourselves. But by then, the whole suburb was planted and we could see trees over hundreds of fences. A very cheap way to plant and rear trees, we thought. It saved the council hundreds of dollars and I still sometimes think of patenting the system for public savings. I call it 'encouraging creative theft' (E.C.T.)."

@JagCesar Great! I’m super behind on knowledge about intents so I have no idea what you said there.

As a little assignment why don’t you make yourself a fruit tracker shortcut? You make a predefined list of fruits that you eat, then when you run the shortcut you select the fruit you had and it adds it to a calendar at the current time and date, with the tag #fruit in the event’s notes field. It then launches your Calendar app to show that it saved it.

Let me know how it goes.

* Raspberry 'Ivory' - one of the yellow varieties
* Feijoa (unknown variety) - Sorry, the plant was here when we moved in!
* Fig 'Vlassoff' - the second batch for the year. These may not ripen in time before Winter
* Apple 'Blush Babe'
