Today I was supposed to run a new power line to my back garden but it is raining away outside so I am sitting at my computer looking out at the gray scene. We have had an excess of rain in the last month, about a foot, so the ground is saturated and the bayou is almost completely fresh. If we do not have a good dry spell the local oysters will begin dieing from the lack of salinity.
I have planted 60 fruit trees and bushes this year - crowded into a very tight place, and those dry rooted, so the rain will be good for their survivability. I have run amouck with planting. The trees are so crowded in I will be pruning them into bushes - something I saw on line, and is exciting - if you are into it like I have become.
I found a place which sells low quality dry rooted fruit trees 5 for $20 and just kept going back again and again...............then have been collecting plants from people's gardens and the wild.
Also I grow veg in a set of raised beds, again too many, and the seasons are changing so lots to do there.
