not the most inspiring photo, but i have at long last, planted a kiwi vine. i’ve put my plans for a kiwi orchard on hold until the upcoming reno is done.
because i don’t have a lot of room for more vines right now (what with the beans and the cucumbers and the squashes), i chose what i thought was a self-pollenizing hardy kiwi: the Michigan State Actinidia arguta. At least, the sign in the garden store said it was self-pollenizing. Once I actually got home and looked it up online, it appears this may not be so. Some sources say it requires a male plant. Some say the fruit will be reddish green and fuzzless, some say lime green. if you know more, please let me know!
on other fronts, harvest #6 (and yes, the spinach is bolting).
