Two summers ago, back in September 2014, I saved and planted out two persimmon seed from the local supermarket. I scarified them in the refrigerator over the preceding Winter, and put them in these two pots.
As I finished planting these out the chickens came over and started scratching around them. The stones tend to prevent them from doing any damage, or digging anything out that's just been planted.

In late Autumn, the Packham's Triumph pear tree flowered in one location and one of these flowers has since pollinated against.. well, I have no idea. Since then, at the start of Winter, it has gotten down to almost 0°C at least once and there have been white frostings on the ground, but the lone pear keeps growing.
