planted breadfruit

Tuesday, 11 Jan 11 Overcast 24°C / 76°F

Transplanted the breadfruit to the backyard a few days ago. Even with the heavy rain and wind we’ve had over 3-4 days, it seems to be doing well. I had dug a hole, filled it with manure, compost, and dirt. Threw in some organic fertilizer, watered it with EM1 and Mel’s OM and stuff. Covered it with black plastic for about a week to let it cure. Then planted the breadfruit. As recommended on a breadfruit website, I cut the plastic planter rather than pulled the breadfruit out of the pot. It looks like it will have new leaves in a few days.
