Asimina triloba....the Paw Paws are getting bigger along the road through Fern Valley
Irrigation work continues in Fern Valley and the last viciously invasive operation will take place next week; the contractors will mechanically trench along both sides of the road, pretty much the length of the collection. They need 4+' cleared on either side. I volunteered to be part of the team that will transplant, tie back, and prune in preparation for the digging. I walked the road after work today and there's a lot that will go, but we can save a lot, and much will make it through the ordeal and recover.
