Moving an Established Fig Tree. Delayed post from Nov 2017
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?
Perhaps you could pick them when unripe and let them ripen in the kitchen?
Rats! Drat! Darn, darn, darn... I had three nectarines that were ripening nicely, soon to be picked. I was so looking forward to my very first fruit - went out yesterday and found three pits on the ground. Pits no less, nothing else!
Joan, I checked on the ants - they are still there. I think only a backhoe will get rid of them. :(
Hang in there Randall. We actually had two whole days without rain - the grass dried and I was able to mow the lawn. My butternut squash and one lone monister-sized cantaloupe are ripening!
Crap--another inch of rain overnight. And more is forecast. Fields are flooded. When they have to close a golf course, you know there's a lot of water.
