The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
Spud, it sounds like you are having a dry spell, too. And the heat is terrible. I had to come in before 11 AM and Spokane had the highest temperature for June on record. Today was 105 degrees. We don't usually get that scorching heat until August.
OH dear! This will be a bad fire season. We had so much rain earlier and have lots of grass growing on the hills. Conditions are right for fires.
Barbara, I know bagging is a chore, but it might be a good solution. I hope so. Remember to keep us informed next year; I hope you get some. OH! It was squirrels?! Those rascals.
I was in my garden at 5:30 AM having breakfast. Mrs. Fat Tail Squirrel came over and sat beside me eating some treasure she found in the garden.
Daniel, these peaches look exactly like the peaches I remember as a child and have not had since. I love the taste and to think you have so many now. So, the answer was to move it into a protected place.
I love daylilies! They bloom as though they were proud to be on stage! The colors of your two radiate life.
Necatrines eaten = squirrels. grrrrrr.
Randall, well you are getting something for your efforts. I guess I am too - I'm growing future shade! :)
Barbara, I don't know which is worse: having your nectarines eaten by some critter, or not having any to begin with (my case). And it hurts to see my apricots dropping from worms--plums, too. At least I have apples, peaches, pears, and persimmons.
Spud, not a clue about the culprit. One day I was excited that the nectarines were growing and looked healthy. Next day just pits on the ground, completely clean pits. Re the ants: until now I've just tried the baking soda/aspartame. I'm about to get serious.Once the cucumbers are finished I'm reclaiming the bed.
Barbara, perhaps you should try molten aluminum on the fire ants.
Do you have any idea what ate your nectarines?
Sounds like you live in a swamp Randall. I could use some of that rain. I've had none for 9 days, and then only a tenth of an inch. Very little for the last month.
Shoulda, coulda, woulda. Brand new tree, only 3 nectarines on it. I thought about bagging them as Daniel has written about. Now I know why he does it. Better luck next year, eh?
