Pups and Persimmons

Hello from the country!!

We were out hunting this morning and we found a persimmon tree in the yard! We circled around looking for ways to get to the fruit.

Roxie looks around.

Jake gives it a try.

Sammy comes over to help Jake look around.

Andy checks if there is something nearby to help get into the tree.

No luck, the fruit is safe for another day.

But Mom says we wouldn't want any of it right now anyway. It isn't ripe yet. See all of the baby persimmons on this branch?

And this branch?

Wow! Look at all of them on these branches?

Anybody have a good recipe for persimmons? It looks like we might need one around here as soon as these ripen up!

I don't know much about those persimmon things but it does seem like something I would want to try. Better luck next time but try not to eat them until they are ripe so you don't get a tummy ache.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Our mom wouldn't know a persimmon if one smacked her upside the head - sorry!
You guys look like you've got that tree covered!
Play bows,

We've never had a persimmon before! We bet they're really yummy!
Hey, Sammy, the calendar on our sidebar says that today is your gotcha day! We hope you have the best day ever with lots of treats and a persimmon cake!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

I bet you could make a good cobbler out of those persimmons. It's something to consider. That's the only suggestion I can really think of to be honest. : /
