Ax: Still busy here had to get out the hoses and soakers this weekend to water my peas havent had any rain for a couple of weeks and they were thirsty. Will see if they make befor hot weather hits.

Have three fruit trees that should be arriving today or tomorrow. One to replace a peach that a buck used for a rub last fall and killed was just a yearling tree and I had taken down the fencing around it to prune and spread the branches some. Hadnt had any deer problems all summer but wouldnt you know as soon as I take the cages down some would show up.


Got another peach just because you can never have too many peaches.:D And the third is a pie cherry that brings me up to two pie cherries lost one of those to disease too and have been waiting to get enough cherries for a homemade cherry pie. Nothing like the store bought ones or those made from canned pie filling you can have those.


It now looks like my one Nectarine tree that was doing so well until the high winds during one of the hurricanes last year uprooted it did not survive the winter either so another tree to order. I righted that one the very next morning tamped the dirt back down around the roote and mounded some more on top then tamped again and staked it and it looked like it recovered fine but no buds or bloom this spring.

Asparagus is slowly making a few spears gave it a bit of water the other day too. Blackberry bushes look to be set for another bumper crop guess I need to order some pint and quart containers and start selling some this year or maybe gear up for blackberry wine. Got around 20 quarts last year, lots of pie, cobbler and jam.

Blueberries looking pretty good too need to add sulfur to all and fertilize with holly tone or other acid loving plant fertilizer. Grapes are finally filling out the arbor and have new sprouts. Things are shaping up pretty good. My oldest peach is beautiful and I got it pruned this weekend, grows like a weed so needs pretty heavy pruning every spring and thinning to keep it from bearing too heavy. Must have had a couple hundred baby peaches before pruning and will still need to be thinned later. I usually have to pick off about every other peach the thing is always so loaded.

Hope I get some rain soon or I will be watering a couple times a week to keep things alive.


Need to soak that archery target too and set it up so I can shoot more.

Hope all is well in Bama.

G'Dad had apple /fruit trees , down at the Old Place--may have mentioned the property was once a vineyard, owned by a Briton (Brittany), who made wine.
One day as a youth Dad pointed over to an area , one of the terraces, and a Peach tree--"I helped Ambrosia bury 12 dozen bottles of wine over there"--(This was in the '30's)---" I don't believe the Authorities found those"--Ambrosia got raided by the ATF--

I know what you mean on the spring cleaning been doing some myself. Finally got some much needed rain the day after I planted my three replacement fruit trees. Should help everything including my grass tremendously and give me a little break from watering.

Hopefully we start getting showers more regularly as I still have some new berry bushes to get established and some more asparagus. Bought some mor purple passion asparagus crowns and a few more blueberries, one each of red, white, and black currant bushes and a couple elderberries. Last years elderberries didnt survive the fall drought I had. Just have to figure out where the currants and elderberries are going.


Been busy with spring chores and boys sports one is playing T-ball and the other is playing flag football. Need to take some time to fling a few arrows again if I can find any.

Got a much needed long steady rain this weekend started Saturday night and went all day Sunday and still some on and off showers today. We really needed it as my clay soil had turned to concrete and the loamy spots were dust.

Yes, rain and the cold snap-- but not as severe as in past years.
Some planted early and the mild cold didn't affect plantings.

Pep,
That is the best news anyone could come across!--I'm glad the cycle is turning, and I know you feel better as a result.

I expect a bumper crop year this time on, about everything---unless drought hits early, good bit of rain here and everything going wild.
