Plant babies

Back in May I was just getting started with the persimmon and milkweed babies. They've been growing up!

The persimmons are slow growing but progressing nicely and the tallest is over three feet high but most are about a foot. The swamp milkweed is even more variable: the tallest is a foot but many are a few centimeters (yes I'm using English and metric units). They seem to refuse to grow straight but that's probably my fault. 

The new addition to the family are 24 paw paw (Asimina triloba) seeds that I just planted this morning.
