So where do I go from here...Comments (6)I faired much better up here in Habersham County...only lost one young windmill. My 15 footer took some major frond damage but has 3-4 new ones pushing out now. Med Fan totally defoliate but is also pushing new fronds out. Finally, all needles and sabal minors show zero damage. I do put a 100 watt spotlight about 18" from the emerging spears on nights dropping below 20 degrees though. Even that didn't keep my Med Fan from defoliating but did likely save it from certain doom after our winter. Good riddance Jack Frost!...See More
Should I prune this Cherimoya tree? If so, where?Comments (2)I can't see your graft line. Is your side branch above the graft line? Your tree definitely looks too tall for my liking. I would top it very low. Sometimes you will see a very small bump on the trunk where leaves used to be. If you do see these small bumps, I would top the tree so that you have about 2-3 small bumps on each side of the tree. Hopefully, after you top the tree, these small bumps will turn into branches.

So where's all the booze?Comments (50)Alcohol is all over our house. Most of the liquor is in a cabinet at the bottom of the basement stairs on the finished side of the basement. Wine is in racks on the cooler side of the basement. There is a wine rack in an upper cab in the kitchen that holds about 10 bottles of table wine. In the bottom of the pantry cupboard next to the cooktop, I have things like brandy, sherry, marsala, etc. of a grade used for cooking. There's a bottle of eau de vie that lives in the frig - it tastes best really cold. Wow - I never thought of locking it away from teen DD! I'm Italian-American, so I drank wine at holiday dinners when I was a child and teen. I believe in letting children learn about responsible, moderate use of alcohol in a family setting - isn't that the European model? She's allowed to drink a little in front of us, but she doesn't really care for it much. I can understand why parents would be careful, though. Even if your own kid wasn't going to sneak your booze, friends can encourage bad behavior. Teens' IQ's seem to decrease in indirect proportion to the size of the group they're in....See More
So where is Bellflower?Comments (5)ooops, - no excuse apart from idleness. Also, a bit worried to sign in on my old PC (this is a new account on my laptop). Xmas knitting and a dismally wet November took me out of the loop for a bit but I did take the camera down to the allotment to mark the end of 2019. I have to figure out how to transfer files and upload to my laptop...but as I am a techie dimwit, I wouldn't hold my breath. Most thrilling project is a little mini-meadow. I am trying to keep track of this as I have blagging plans in the pipeline (via the local council). It looks a bit bleak right now, although encouragingly, I am overjoyed that there has not been massive weed regrowth. Got lots to talk about....See More
