Some flowers around the yard. 6.22.18
I wonder if the sour smell had something to do with deer poop. We have deer in our yard just about every day early mornings and evenings around 4 am and 5-6 p.m. The deer traverse to and from the lake along our stream and often stop in our yard to nibble on the sweet grass and drop poop. So when I rake up grass clippings I also rake in the deer poops. Our two small dogs go crazy in the deer poops as if it were perfume. The dogs stinks horribly! It takes a couple of shampoos and rinses to remove the stench.
Thats a pretty big hole you dug... big enough for a duck pond. You could get a kio pond going quite easily....
Last month I was doing final work of raking up some grass and put a large pile of it in the wheel barrow. I forgot about after a beer break. The wheel barrow sat outside in the rain and sun for about two weeks. When it came to getting the wheel barrow again there was awful smell and looking inside the bin the grass turned into swamp. The grass decomposed completely in the water and it was black gold. I dumped it in the flower garden and tilled it into the soil. I have not seen the results yet and have to wait until Spring.
So it seems like a good idea to do this again and wondered if anyone had similar experience with this, mixing grass with water and let it sit for a couple of weeks.
....So that last apple tree that was save did not have the rounding roots I planted survived. I guess the tree and I were lucky to have met each other. I do remember reading that it was advised not to put fertilizer around the roots so as to force the roots to grow outward in search of nutrients thus to anchor the tree solidly into the ground.
Ok so, if the trees I buy has rounding roots, then I do what WA State Horticulturist recommends.
I looked at your cool site and one picture showed the rounding roots. What are those white fuzzy spots?... are those molds or mildews?
Is it too late to transplant fruit trees from a pot to the ground? Some stores have half off on fruit trees.
Daniel, I would be interested in hearing what you learn from those books, especially "Understanding Toots" (Roots :)
