Nipped In The Bud!

After more than a week and a half of day and night time temperatures 20 to 25 degrees above normal, many fruit trees will be ‘nipped’ in the bud next week when temperatures return to our more normal February temperatures.

A few apple, cherry, peach and pear trees have been fooled into budding and blooming a full 45-60 days early this year. Tiny Garden’s ‘normal’ frost/freeze date is the 10th of April.

Bamboo update: Bamboo planted last December is looking pretty good. It has survived our coldest weather of the year with only a few freeze damaged leaf’s.
Son-n-law (Monday) dug and transplanted 3 or 4 Sea cane roots to form a wind break protecting his back(north) door from our cold north and northwest winds.
Mmmmm… I’m not sure but locally it is called sea(see) cane, however I really think it is Arundinaria a bamboo native to the Americas and not a true cane species.
Be it cane or bamboo it grows 8 to 15 feet tall with a nice decorative late summer bloom and will form a dense clump of 1 to 1 1/4 diameter canes.

  1. I can completely relate in regards to the fruit trees. That is what happened to our pears last year. It was sad as we only got about 15 lbs of pears off of two trees, but the year before we harvested over 300 lbs off of those same two trees. I love the feeder rack also!

    • Thank you.
      Grin it is a recycle of what I first made as a hanging pot and pan kitchen rack.

      Had a pair of black chins visit within 30 minutes of hanging the feeders.
      Happy gardening
