Rants, Raves and Recipes from the Edge of Sanity
The unfortunate part of that, is that there are people in the world who really are that stupid, and they breed.
Good luck with the trees I hope you have success.
Yea good luck with those. If they work I might try some in a couple of years in my section of TX. I didn't think we had the right climate for fruit trees.
Now all you need is a dog to piss on those trees.
Girl dogs don't piss on trees, wc, just the boy dogs. I'll be looking for a girl dog. We bitches got to stay together, yo.
Oh, and the cherry trees are Montmorency cherries, sour cherries best suited for dehydrating, juicing, and chutneys. Very good at fighting inflammation.
My mom tried her damnedest to get fruit going (Southlake-near DFW), everything from blackberry bushes to strawberries and every other kind of berry you could think of. I dutifully planted and then uprooted each one after it inevitably succumbed to the hell-like summers in TX. In my experience, the plants themselves would grow, but it was never cool enough/moist enough to allow it to produce fruit that didn't resemble something out of a dehydrator. Maybe trees will do better. Water the shit out of them, we had in-ground sprinklers and it still wasn't enough, I was still dragging buckets of water twice a day for those stupid things. Best of luck. You can imagine my surprise when I got to VA and discovered such things as mountains and trees. May as well have been Mars.
Angel, make sure you got different species of apple trees so they will pollinate properly. I finally plan to put in three different types of dwarf apple trees this year, so if all goes well I should have some fruit on them in 2-3 years. I've been growing strawberries and blueberries, and last year I finally planted some raspberry plants. Got a few raspberries last year, should have lots of berries this year on the 2nd-year canes.Rusty
Fruit trees typically bear about two years our of five. Figure on fruit pies in that time frame.
