Pulling out the 2nd Papaya Tree
Two weeks ago I uprooted my second papaya tree, not because its root had rotted, but because it was slowly dying due to the heat of the weather and also because of the lack of vitamins in the soil.
The hole in the bucket does not become a barrier to the papaya tree, but it serves to shrink the papaya tree called bonsai. If the weather wasn't hot, my papaya trees would live a long time and bear a lot of fruit.
So far, I have only one papaya tree left that is full of healthy fruits. Today my chili plants are still alive which I cut off the branches so that some of the vitamins it gets from the soil are not wasted and end up in other parts of the chili body.
If you notice, most of my plants are dry due to the heat of the weather. But the only thing left that is durable and seasonal is the sweet potato. Even my squash didn’t really withstand the extreme heat of the weather. Even my ampalaya (Bitter Gourd) plant can no longer withstand the intense heat of the weather
When I removed the papaya tree, I only got six small fruits that can be made into ATSARA or other dishes. ATSARA is a preserved small slice of papaya that looks like a pickled stuffed with carrots.
It's just amazing that it has different shapes. I also can't explain why? Maybe it’s the effect of the heat of the weather.
Can you see this big plastic water bottle that I planted with papaya? There are so many big holes around him, aren't there. This is one way I can shrink the papaya tree and at the right time, it can be easily pulled out.
Maybe if I dig deeper and widen the circle of the planter, it might live a few more months.
So far, this is the only remaining papaya tree whose fruit is the same size and shape. But as far as I can see it will only last a month according to the tip of its leaf tree starting to turn yellow.
