Joan, I don't know about me being a "real gardener". I'm really not. Till, sow, weed, and harvest--that's the bottom line. I don't even prune my fruit trees (looks awful and it's too much work!). Now my son-in-law, that's different. He IS a "real gardener"--a farmer gardener. Have you checked out www.silverthorn-farm.com ?  I'm going now to Eugene urban farm as you mentioned.

Joan Cary is right! I am going through gardening withdrawal!

Today we cant get the car out of the garage. Its ok, so many go through so much worse challenge. Feb is the beginning of the end of winter. I hope!

Randall, what a beautiful tree and so prolific! It must be a real pleasure to stroll in your garden. You are a real gardener, facing many challenges to get a crop from beloved trees and never knowing if the weather and pests and diseases and birds and squirrels will leave any fruit for your enjoyment. 

Daniel, I have been watching your storm as it moves across our area. Cary tells me another is over your home now and headed our way. Yes, this is a long, long winter. No snow until now, and now very cold temps with snow on top of ice. Very treacherous walking and driving. 

Watching as weather intrudes on places that are not prepared for winter conditions. I can't even imagine going out in such conditions.

I get that leaf curl disease, too. Plus I lose whole limbs on my pear trees--they just up and die. And I suspect apple tree limbs have died from woodpeckers drilling holes encircling around. With the sub-zero temperatures we've had, I'm fairly positive I won't have peaches, nectarines, or almonds (in the peach family of species). That's the usual "rule of thumb". Apples and pears will be okay. By the way, I absolutely love nectarines--no fuzz!

View from my front door today. How do the rest of you manage? And how did I manage living in Chicago, and colder parts of Illinois, and Indiana? I am not so tough as I was.

What gods do I have to pray to, to bring Spring?

Those poor folks in California. Big drought. And those poor folks back East. Snow cold snow cold. Brrrrr.

Another orchid is about to bloom. Will post when the flowers open.

Cold snap this week into high teens or low 20s. Could so use a lasting spring now! But cant complain. So many have much much greater challenges.

"sold" not "spld". damn clumsy fingers.
Comment by Daniel W on February 6, 2014 at 8:54am
Randall that nectarine is awesome! Peaches here are limited by often-debilitating peach leaf curl disease. The bloom like crazy then the leaves curl and turn red, then brown, and all fall off along with the peaches. I now have some that are spld as leaf curl resistant. This could be the year I find out. We often get frosts after they bloom which also doesnt help. I love fresh peaches.
