Persimmon Tree Updates. 6.6.18
Randy, just before reading your post, I was going to ask a question about Robins. Do you have grapes, and do robins or other birds eat many of them? Same question to everyone. I know Daniel has grapes for one.
When I lived 30 miles south of here, I had some grapes, but there were also a lot of Robins, and they ate 100% of the grapes long before they were ripe enough for me to eat. I moved before I got around to trying netting over them.
While I live about 200 miles north of Kathy, I, too, have a lot of green shoots popping up. It's nice having chives this early. I'm just afraid my fruit trees will blossom too early and be wiped out by a freeze--the last date being in May. We'll just have to wait and see.
I just love watching two male robins hopping on the lawn in tandem, eyeing each other, ready for battle. Where one goes, the other follows--hilarious!
The other way around here, Kathy - the regular magnolias bloom in April/May and the star magnolias later.
Randy, I like your idea of planting a tree in the former hole. Looking forward to learning what tree you find to fit that spot. Hopefully, you'll send along some photos.
