All that excitement over the almond trees...well I was pulling weeds from some blackberry plants I had in pots and thought, what is this big weed??? I pulled it up and there was a black walnut on the roots...no kidding!!! I have no idea where a black walnut came from...
What is it with me and nut trees...nuts maybe??? Back when Mama was still living alone in her home, I was pulling weeds in her flower bed and pulled up two "weeds" with pecans attached...I brought these home and planted them on the hill above the pond. This was probably 14 years ago. These pecan trees have been slow slow growing and I'm wondering if I will ever see a pecan. That was back when everything I planted died. I spent 15 years killing plants before I ever got anything to grow!!! I learned the hard way, you can't stick a plant in a hole in clay and expect it to grow. I've pushed many a wheelbarrow load of rich soil, old straw, and stuff from the chicken house and dumped it into the yard...Sometimes you've got to change the color of the soil if you want anything to grow.
I added a little side shelf to the potting bench. By the way, I am enjoying using this place to work!! The bare ground around needs something. Maybe pinestraw, until the grass or moss takes over??
I'm really wound up this morning. Better get busy. Thank you for looking in..
