Plum tree transplant
Then I did some chair hopping and eventually got up up and started digging out this little plum tree I had started from a stick here a couple of years ago and it was now time to plant it in a better spot now that it was growing good.
I took the tree over to the new hole I dug last night and I got a load of decayed woodchips to add to the mix and I got a water hose over to the sight to gave the new tree a good water soak once planted.
I was doing some chair hopping when I heard a commotion near the front gate so I went out to see what was up. The tree trimmer guys were here with a load of freshly cut woodchips and unloading them. I chatted with them a bit.
Weedy strawberry hangers
I’ve noticed a lot of weeds have grown in my strawberry hangers over the winter and I was wondering if I should just leave them and see if the strawberry plants would outgrow them as the strawberry plants grow vigorously once they get going or should I take them out and replant the hangers, removing all the weed plants.
Hangers have worked well
These hanging plant hangers have worked well with the strawberry plants growing in them. The berries grew well in them last year and all I had to to was eat the berries as the there is a water system above them that waters them when the blueberries get watered. I don’t remember having any problem with bugs either. I did remove a lot of small weed plants during the season which were easy as they didn’t have much of a root system like the plants now have.
I think I’ll do all but one of them that way and leave one to test out what would happen if I didn’t do that. Would the strawberry plants outgrow the weeds eventually.
One more time
Old lemon tree
I planted a lemon tree in the back when I moved back here about thirty years or so ago. The frost killed the top of the tree and I haven’t had any fruit on it since then.
