Growing Oriental Poppies from Bare Root Starts. 4.21.18
Congratulations on the acquisition of lots of brown gold Daniel.
Despite frequent crop failures, we know the old adage of "nothing ventured, nothing gained". I don't get overly discouraged. And living through winter isn't so bad, either. It gives me (and garden) a chance to rest and re-invigorate. Same is true with my golfing. A break in the action is a good thing.
Don, I am sorry to learn of your apple tree going down. Those late autumn snow storms take down a lot of strong trees. I've lost several, i.e. Washington Hawthorn and an apple.
Don, Daniel, and Randy, your crops and trees sound especially delightful now, as the weather makes its change from autumn into winter temperatures. I have Concord grape juice, about 20 quarts, in my freezer and given to family and friends. I went hunting for some parsley a few days ago and found nothing good enough to eat. My dried parsley taste fresh in cups of chicken stock.
The neighbors all have put their gardens to bed and shared from their abundance with me.
I have a little herb garden in my dining room window that looks healthy and lush. I use them as fast as they grow. I'll get some new starts going so that I can have more.
Ouch, Don. I know the feeling. My cherry tree split a few years back. I've never planted another one because I hated pitting the fruit.
Thanks, Daniel. Good thoughts. Not sure why I chose a Red Delicious in the first place. I bought it on a whim, I guess, while visiting an orchard in South Hero on Lake Champlain. The rooted portion of the tree will be an obstacle, unless I can get a backhoe up here.
I would be sad as well Don.
A pity, Don!
