Spud, our area of ky hasn't had any snow this year. And very little cold weather.
I remember when I was young and my dad used to say we needed a long cold spell to thin out the mosquitoes. I didn't understand the connection. Now I say the same things. I understand that cold is essential to our environment to kill out many destructive insects and make room for the beneficial ones.
Mosquitoes and nats were biting yesterday when I was working in the yard.

Couldn't post this last month because my camera battery was discharged and I couldn't find the charger.  There were 3 of these humongous icicles on my house that reached the ground.

And we won´t stop protesting!

Chris, crack pot's are taking over governments everywhere. The only consolation I can find are the protest against the bigotry and hatred. Town Hall meetings are becoming very active against the alt right.

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".
