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.

Don, that's sad.  But, now you can plant a new tree!

I buy scion from Fedco in Maine.  They have a lot of historic varieties especially suited to New England.  Maybe this is a chance to plant a type that your great grandparents loved!

That oak is awesome!  Especially with the snow.

Spud, I like both Bodaceous and Bilicious sweet corn.  They are not too sweet and have a good corn flavor in my climate and soil.

I would be sad as well Don.

A pity, Don!

An early fall of dense snow overnight has taken my Red Delicious apple tree, planted as a whip in 1980.  Sad to see.  At age 36, it had been just coming into its own in shape and production. 

Our 20-year-old red oak, however, looks splendid.

Daniel, what's the name of the corn, that you said wasn't too sweet?

Randy, your raspberry wine sounds delicious.  When I win the lottery, I'll come visit you and maybe you'll give me a sip.

Kathy, it's only lagte October, and I don't even have 2015 garden mess cleared up, and already I'm anticipating those catalogs.

Randy, you are the wine champ!  Raspberry wine, awesome!

Maybe I'll get strawberries next year.  The beds didn't do well at all in 2015.  Maybe 10 berries in 36 ssquare feet, all 1 to 2 years old.

Also, the primocane blackberries have promise.  I have a spot for the plants to move to, once I get it fenced.

Thanks Daniel. I always love finding the gardening catalogs in the mail.

Okay, one more batch of red raspberry wine (making 8 total), and I'm done. Like your blackberry patch, Daniel, I'm starting a new r.r. area. It'll be difficult to uproot the old patch with all the runners they produce. Like strawberries, one needs to rotate beds every 5 years or so. In fact, the new rasp. patch is going where the old strawberry patch was.
