The inimitable Charles Portney will be speaking to us on everything pawpaw in a long-awaited return to face to face meetings in the MultiPurpose Room… with pawpaw sorbet… and cookies! You may remember that Don Winterstein wrote about Pawpaws in a recent issue of the Fruit Gardener. Charles started corresponding with him about the topic and now we will be the beneficiaries of their shared knowledge and experience. (If you didn’t see the article, pawpaws are the largest native fruit in North America, are celebrated on the third Thursday in September — National Pawpaw Day — as well as being the State Native Fruit of Ohio. Take that, rhubarb!)
Because Charles will be projecting some pawpaw pix, we will probably be meeting inside where the movie screen lives. Still, the room is large and we can safely distance to our hearts’ content. Charles will also be using a mic so the wary can set up outside on the patio.
Late breaking news: Don Winterstein may also be in the house! This should be a can’t-miss meeting.
