The apple trees will need to be sprayed in the next week or so and I need to trim the grape vines this weekend if possible. I am cutting down two of the Japanese Plum Trees as I have lost the fight against the Black Knot Disease and hope to save the remaining trees. Turned on Pond Aerator – Jesse from up the street came by and caught 10 bass in one day. The pond is healthy. Garlic is coming up. Looking good. I am working on gratitude and compassion. Always.
