I'm inspired by the vultures who just cruise around for hours without using any effort until they find a nice roadkill. Long period of relaxed observation followed by decisive action.

My trees don't start to leaf and flower out until May. And some of these are bred to produce early. Maybe you could get a small orchard of paw paws to grow out there. Would be great to see.
