Well, So much to do, so little time. High bush blueberries planted, 2 apple trees planted, hazelnut trees to plant... I did get the 1810 Porkchop in the ground, with a makeshift hoop house. Got a liiitttle too warm and wilted half of one of the leaves beyond recovery. Plant seems to be recovering well. I laid some black plastic mulch down to help keep the moisture in the soil. These windy 80 degree days at 35% humidity apparently require more water than I anticipated. The first 826 Zachmeier didn't want to come out of the seed coat, so it came out all deformed. Was hoping it would take off, I'm a sucker for an underdog, but so far not so much. Started a 2nd. Will put this in the ground once it sprouts. Only got the pumpkin patch about half the size I wanted, before the transmission on the rototiller let go. I guess its a known problem with this particular tiller. I'll put the tiller repair on the list... Way too much on the list... pic is of the Zacmeier from 10 days ago.... hasn't changed much since, but I can't bring myself to put it back in the trash. Went in there once already, pulled it back out just to see what it would do.
