Joan, thanks for the link to the storing nuts article (above). I learned a few things.

Today is our 7th consecutive day of over 60 degrees. We've broken all sorts of records in Indiana. I'm killing myself (like Kathy) doing too much--yard work, golf, even cut a load of wood.

It´s not after Trump yet.. elections here in a few weeks and I´m afraid our local Trump clone wins.

Hostas are sprouting and rhodies blooming. Spring is looming. Maybe there's life after Trump.

The ice storm of 2008-09 hit western ky harder than anyplace else. My daughter and I had to drive to a town about 45 minutes away to find groceries. I was looking out of the truck window, along a two mile stretch of flat hwy, and the power poles had fallen like domino's. There wasn't one standing as far as I could see.

Today temps were in the mid-70s and one of my small star magnolias bloomed in.
I added fifteen gallons of compost to each of my hugelcuture beds. I hope that's enough to allow me to plant about four tomatoes in one bed. I can't decide what to put in the second one.
I doubt I'll be doing anything in the yard tomorrow. My arms are sore.

The wild persimmons are good but very small. About the size of a small plum. Which is another fruit tree on this property :)

The neighbor closest to me needed to move it so I took it. It's an old plum tree that the ice storm took the top out of. But it's still alive and has wonderful plums when I can get them before the birds.

True, our persimmon trees can get mammoth. Good info on the chromosome difference, Daniel.

I have yet to investigate what kind of fruit trees I want. I have other apple varieties and one plum that never fruits. I know one thing--I won't plant a cherry tree. After growing up with them, when my last one split, I said "good riddance".

Daniel, the largest persimmon tree in ky is 75'. I wouldn't have thought they grew that large compared to the ones I've seen growing wild around here.

That sounds good, Kathy, large yards in quiet neighbourhoods! I enjoy the countryside enormously but I think I´d feel lost after so many years in apartments.

Chris, I've always preferred town. But I was fortunate to have lived in places with very large yards in quiet neighborhoods.
I had a small garden that produced well. And a strawberry patch that was also productive. I had even planted a blackberry patch and two peach trees but moved before they became mature.

Daniel, the persimmon trees here are small. Not much larger than a dwarf peach tree.
