    Taffy, I can relate to your pics. I'm glad I didn't get stuff put out yet. Thank you hectic life. With all the rain we've had (there are some in my county on the river that have water in their homes up to the 2nd story roofs!) my poor pastures and garden are a bit wet. I'm hoping the next few days will dry them all up some and plan to get everything out next weekend *fingers crossed*. This is what one of my pastures looked like..before we got 3 more straight days of rain. It's not standing like it was now but it's a sloppy darn mess. :(


    My pear & peach trees are blooming and I've had to mow my yard twice. I'm impatiently waiting on the redbud tree so I can hit my morel hunting spots. Bring on the fungi!

    Yoooohoooo Lockwood....your fall order is being processed. The drought was a bit rough on the trees last year but even though they look a bit worse for the wear, they are loaded with blooms. Looks like a normal pear year again, YAY!

    Heirloom Bartletts, trees were transplants from my grandpa's old family homestead. They've been on this property for 25 years or more. Some heavy bearing suckers. Normal years I can literally fill pickup truck loads. I always end up taking several skid loader buckets full that I don't get to (or am sick of looking at by the end of it) back to the woods to feed the deer. We also take 10 or so big rubbermaid totes full to the food pantry.




    And my little Elberta patio peach tree just because the blooms are such a pretty color.


    A few buds on the redbud tree and lilac bush is just starting. Fingers crossed they will go crazy this week, that's the all systems go signs for morel hunting! I'm so ready, I could eat them every day.

    Hot diggity dog MHF!!
    I am already wiping the drool now… I just adore pears. Pear sauce, pear bits, dried pears, fried pears, baked pears, caked pears…all things pears!!
    You actually inspired me with your pics of the canning last year and telling of how many you had …. So I bought 15 more fruit trees this year.
    I already had 15, but I wanted more!

    This year (so far anyway) I bought more: Ayers, Keiffer, and Bartlett. Apples: I bought: Gala, Jonathan, Jonagold, Mutsu, and Honey crisp. (I know Taffy, you said Starks said they were risky, but I found it locally and thought I‘d give it a try… just to see)
    Plus: 2 Stella cherries and a Montmorency. The Stellas should pollinate my Royal Anne and the…I forget the other one.
    Also bought a Garnet Beauty peach and a Goldmine nectarine to go with my Red Haven, Elberta, and Belle of Georgia.

    And… my Mulberry trees, currents, and gooseberries arrived just today. Yay! But now I have far too much to plant, LOL…. Thankfully most are in pots and I have a bit of time.

    The garden: Garlic is up. Strawberries are up, (Weeds are UP!) and I’ve planted some potatoes, carrots, spinach, and lettuces all of which are sprouting.
    Lilacs are budded up, but no blooms yet.
    Dogwoods are just opening up, along with my Redbuds, Crabapple, fruit trees and tulips.
    T-shirt weather today to boot….Woohoo!!

    *runs off to start hoarding pear recipes*

    Well, I'm smacking myself in the forehead because I got suckered in by a half price sale. Does it to me every time...
    In addition to the above madness I have yet to plant, I just finished clicking the "finalize order" button. (again)
    Chorjuro, Olympic Giant, and Drippin Honey Asian peara are one the way.

    This year seems to be the year of the baby fruit trees.

    Snapped these this morning before it started pouring- (crappy cell pics, sorry)

    Starting to green up


    I can almost (almost) smell the lilac... not quite there yet.


    16 new baby trees! The one on bloom is a Cleveland Pear for the front of the house

    Well, still feeling left out, here. can't eat ocotillo, but they produce one of my absolute favorite flowers - this one is in my very natural garden and has just started blooming.


    P1030631.jpg They (ocotillo) just bloomed within the last couple of days.

    I love your pics lockwood - especially the top one.
    You might as well donate that there chair though, it looks like you won't have time to use it. :)
