Today I wanted to go to the big shopping areas and see if I could find a couple tangerine type plants to plant in my yard.
I first went to Costco as I’d heard they had some of what I wanted but they didn’t have any citrus. I did some shopping while I was there as long as I was there.
Next I went to a big hardware store that usually has such things and they did have some although not the variety I wanted but I decided I better not be too picky or I might not get any so I bought one of each at about 25 bucks apiece. I got two.
From there I went on home. I did note people driving seemed to be in a real hurry and a bit rude these days. Not everyone, but enough of them.
Here’s the two citrus plants I purchased. Now I need to get them planted.
All that shopping tired me out so a nap was in order first and then I did some chair hopping around the yard checking out the spot I wanted to plant the new plants.
Prepping the spot
I decided this spot was the best and pulled a bunch of the weeds and gave them to he chickens in their pen. I then started digging the holes. The soil is very good, nice and loamy.
After that I cut some wire to put around them to protect them from the chickens. I think I should of used higher wire but this will do for now.
Planting the trees
Just before dark I transplanted the plants from their pots and watered them in.
No chicks yet
I also checked to see if any chicks had hatched out today in the egg incubator but I didn’t see any so maybe tomorrow. As far as I know I did everything right and I think the roosters did their job so at least some of the eggs should hatch out. They say they hatch in about 21 days so I’m still good I think.
The shopping wasn’t too bad today and I did get my main item the citrus and even got them planted.
The weather was real nice too. Nice day.
Darn scam message, eh? delete delete delete LOL
Nice trees! Yes, I agree, you’ll need higher wire to protect them soon.
