Who ever eats the most corn gets the most worms.
Even with the rain brought to me by Tropical Storm BILL, I still managed to harvest my first sweet corn planting. In all I fed 5 adults, 3 great grand sons all the sweet corn they could eat.
That left me with about 30 ears to bag and put in my freezer.
Tropical Storm BILL moved in Wednesday morning dropping 1 – 7/8 inches of rain before turning north east headed for Missouri.
Nursery sucker list. This spring I ordered three grape vines. So I wasn’t all that surprised when I received a ‘Special’ offer on dwarf apple trees that the nursery had not sold this spring.
These Dwarf trees normally sell for around 20 – 24 dollars each. The clearance trees cost 9 dollars each. So I pretty much got 3 trees for the price of one at the nursery’s normal catalog price.
I opted for two Red delicious and one Golden Delicious apple trees.
The nursery recommended the Golden Delicious apple variety as a pollinator for the Red delicious apple trees and the Red to pollinate the Golden variety.
At 8 to 10 foot tall at maturity. These trees will fit in nicely in my cow/donkey proof garden area.
Yes I do know that dwarf trees will not be very productive when compared to semi-dwarf or standard size trees. But the truth is me or none of family are big into making jelly/jam or other wise canning fruit. Hence most if not all fruit produced will be consumed fresh or will find it’s way into the hog feeder.
