Wordless Wednesday - Stolen Bites

A stranger approached me for a papaya that has been eaten up by birds. She was told that if a child who does not speak were to eat such a papaya, he'll be able to speak. She is a desperate mother with a 'wordless child'. I gave her a ripe papaya so that she can grow her own tree from the seeds.

Takpe la to share with the natures, you still have a lot up there xD

Oh so papaya grow somewhat like coconuts. I learned something today. They also look like mangos.

Squirrel's work?
The best you can do is pluck the papaya and ripe it indoor!
I can never plant papaya in my garden as the monkeys constantly pluck the "pucuk"(young shoot). So i end up with "now you see...now you don't.....

Ada banyak lagi tu. Tapi kenapalah tak kasi habis yang pergi makan dulu tu. I tried to sow papaya this summer but stunted.

One such a touching and sad story! I would have done the same too.

Yes Milka, you are right..sharing is fulfilling.

Lifeshighway, they are a bit shorter than coconut tree, but now they have mini sizes too and at one glance the fruits look like mangos.

Malar, I thought so too, but I caught the culprits red-handed...birds!

Diana, I surprised them while they were eating it..but by evening, the papaya almost gone!

It's neat how the fruit ripens prematurely once it has been damaged.

Also, I wish I could grow papaya at all (we still can a papaya hot sauce every year because I like it so much, but I have to to the grocery for the papayas... the rest of the ingredients come from my garden).

So nice to see nature at work here. I think I wanna grow a papaya tree so I can go bird watching too.

Eliza, I would love to learn about your papaya hot sauce, first time I heard it!

Autumn Belle, besides birds there will be tupai and musang!

Papaya, marvellous, only place you are likely to find it in Scotland is in the squirrel proof supermarket.

p3chandan said...

Luckily not you Rainfield...I would have chased you around the garden!:)

Hehehe..really Alistair, you can find papaya in Scotland supermarket? I bet its expensive too..

We have a lot of papayas back in my country. they are so easy to grow and taste great!

p3chandan said...

Fer, yes you are right they are very easy to grow, you can just throw the seeds and in no time you will see seedlings.
