What a task to take on. I fully expected one or more of the tractors to disappear into the new hole. I wonder how they came up with that configuration of tractors; it worked beautifully!

I assume you are hand-digging your lilacs, Daniel. hard, hard work! You must be exhausted!

A tree moving project just slightly bigger than mine.  :-)

This week I've been off from work.  I've been digging up our etablished lilacs and moving them to the Battleground place.  It took more than a month to move 8 shrubs.  The last 2 are in the truck.

Next comes my ginkgo tree, 18 years old.  It has been slow growing, but now maybe 10 foot tall.  I dug it sort of like this -


It's dug, but now needs to be wrapped, moved, and planted.

So exhausted! Heading for bed now :-)

Randy, I second that.  I always feel like this group is my friends and neighbors, and when someone is not here, I feel the loss.

On one of the fruit growing websites, there is a lot of angst in warmer climates regarding the warm winter.  Some apples in the SouthEast are blooming.  High risk for frost kill at that stage.  One can hope the warm doesn't cycle back to a freeze.

We have lilacs with big buds, but I think they do that now anyway.  The other fruit tree buds still appear closed tight.

Good to return from my short trip and see Spud's name added to the comments here. Sorry his situation is what it is.

And I feel so sorry for Barbara. Setbacks can be discouraging.

Glad you're all right, Spud, and I hope things will get easier for you!

Spud, really glad you are OK.  Figured you were, but still glad to hear from you.

Daniel, I enjoyed the adorable little atheist gardener video.  Too bad it's no longer available.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 11, 2016 at 3:37pm

Thanks Bertold.  And, thank you all for your concern.  That's what I meant in my first post, but after reading it again, it could be interpreted that I was only thanking Joan.

December has been colder than normal.  Got down to negative 10° F one morning, but temperatures are back to normal, or above now.  The high temps are going to rise above freezing this week.
