A quick “bonus” Blog today. Five years ago, we planted three plum trees. Two of them died. One survived to blossom and leaf out every year, but never had plums.
This year, we bought another plum tree from one of the “big box stores.” Just a happy convergence of place, time, and truck! Sadly, I think our new plum tree is already on its way to the great bonfire in the sky – it has lost all its leaves.
But the old plum tree. My goodness, we got plums! Cross pollination? I’ve been picking off (thinning?) green plums every time I go out to the so-called orchard.
Tonight I’m going to a Master Gardener class about weeds. I hope to learn a lot to pass along.
Weeds. Maybe if I can identify them, I can also be rid of them!
