After salmon jumped over the fish ladder. It is trying to gain some strength while against strong currant. 魚梯挑戰成功後. 在強烈水流中邊休息再繼續挑戰.

What a sight of nature running its course! Seen it many times in the films but it is different when you see it right there. Long way home from ocean back to fresh water stream where they were born to spawn when the temperature reach 14C in fall. Many people were fishing and caught many big salmon!
好一幅大自然奮鬥的景象! 雖看過許多類似的影片了,但是身歷其境的感受到底還是比較震撼的. 自從鮭魚卵孵化後逐漸長大些後便從下游到海洋去生活長成了,經由奇妙的基因密碼,秋天當氣溫約14度C時,成熟的鮭魚便開始了回鄉產卵之路.
Salmons in fall around September and trout in spring around April. 鮭魚洄流於秋天九月左右產卵,鱒魚則在春季四月份時洄游產卵.

Very cold hardy native perennial/shrub with edible berries. Easy to grow. It is native in North America. Best growing in full sun to partial shade location. But tolerant thick shade.

–Plant is very prolific, this plant has 7 large fruit and many small ones so far. 這品種生很多,光這株有7個較大的果,還有許多小的.


Annual fruit. Easy to grow. Best in full sun location. Small yellow flowers blooming in summer to fall. Prolific. Small fuzzy green fruit mature to yellow hand sized melon with rough webbing pattern, inner orange flesh is sweet and juicy. Mature days 60-100days. I like this variety is small enough and faster to mature due to the wild animals disturbance.

Mature size:1.5′-2′(H)X 4′-6′(W). Open pollinated. Propagate by seeds.

一年生的水果. 容易栽種. 最好栽種在全日照處. 夏到秋黃色小花開不停. 多花多果. 從剛開始授粉成功結的綠色毛茸茸的小小瓜到成熟時的黃色網紋瓜,香甜的瓜肉為橘色. 種子種到結瓜為2-3個多月. 我喜歡這個品種是因為成熟期短,瓜夠小,否則野生動物的破壞搗亂會沒有成果可以吃.

成熟株高1.5-2呎,寬幅/藤長4-6呎. 可以自株受粉結果. 繁殖以種子的方式來進行.
