Daniel, that's interesting that the apple symbol showed on your tablet, but not your laptop. I'm thinking I should refrain from posting symbols, as they may not show correctly on some computers.
The last year, I've been using the degree symbol on my temperature readings, and think now I should stop that also.
How many of you don't see the apple computer symbol here?
How many don't see the temperature degree symbol here? °
How many don't see the ohm symbol here? Ω
How many don't see the cent symbol here? ¢
Daniel, I didn't know, and was surprised that store apples were that far from tree ripened. Like you, I'm sure that I would like them much better if they were tree ripened.
After reading your post, I remember many years ago eating apples off of trees and enjoying them. But I enjoyed the tart ones best, and even ate some of the sweet ones before they were fully ripe, because they were sour.
If I ever get more land, I'll plant some. I think I have room here for a small crabapple. Do you think it's too late to take a cutting off of one I like and try rooting it?
You may remember that I tried it before from a crabapple that I found a little over a mile from here, and liked the taste of. Those cuttings never grew, but I tried it in the spring and you said I would probably have better results in the fall.
Kathy & Daniel, thanks for the welcome.
I enjoy seeing the posts from all you regulars, and miss the ones that disappeared, even though I don't mention it.
I've often wondered about one person in particular that stopped posting, because I may have had something to do with her dropping-out. I can't remember her name, but I think Joan said she communicated with her just after she quit the group, and I think quit gardening.
I was concerned that part of the reason she quit was because I said I bought the same garden cart she had, and had more negative things to say about it than positive.
Joan, is that one of the reasons she quit?
On my farm, we've planted an apple orchard a couple years ago. So we're hoping for some fruit in '17. Can't tell you what we planted! Nate (SIL) bought a whole bunch of apples to make cider. He's hosting an "open house" at his market this Sat. for a one day end of season event. I doubt if it'll be successful, but he and my daughter are the eternal optimists.
Daniel, here's hoping your trees give you some good fruit next season. The way I've been planting trees in the past, I would expect it to take 2 or 3 seasons, but I suspect your method of planting (which I intend to use from now on), will give you some produce new season.
By the way, I didn't purposely put the computer symbol in my first sentence. I typed "apple", but the computer changed it to , and I decided to leave it in.
Not being an apple lover, this is the first time I've typed the word since using my new computer, so it's the first time that has happened.
Daniel, I'm also amazed at your ambition, and I'm sure your garden will appreciate all the leaves you feed it.
Joan, your Paradise Acres looks beautiful, and I too am glad you've got your spirit back.
I agree with Joan, Daniel. Your work ethic is incredible and inspirational. My neighbors have no garden and consider sitting on a lawn mower for 3 hours every 3 days is work and exercise. Even at a quarter mile away, I hate hearing their noisy mower.
I didn't quite get my geraniums indoors in time. The frost got them. No matter. They seldom survive anyway.
Joan, it does look like "Paradise" where you now reside. I'm so glad you're happy and positive.
