Papaya No More

8 Jul

The lone papaya tree in the garden is nearing its end as we have harvested most of the fruits. The netting mesh is now loose because there are not many fruits left on the tree to protect anymore.

This has been a good papaya tree

Soon we have to chop the tree down or, at least, shorten it to about three feet to allow it to grow again. It will be our biggest challenge because the papaya tree is next to our beloved frangipani tree with many hanging air plants. And being so tall, it will be a mammoth task to shorten it without damaging anything on the frangipani tree and the ground.

The thought of not having anymore more papayas daily is rather disheartening because we have gotten so used to it. Perhaps we have been taking it for granted, the constant supply of papaya.

Well, I hope the papaya nursery will speed up the growth of the current batch of trees. And we have to readjust our fruit intake and hope the little trees grow up faster to give us fruits.
