...and here is my youngest...inspecting the chair I took out for Maw Maw Vero to sit on when we had a blowout on the trailer on our way to Mississippi. There's my Byron changing it in five minutes flat....he is the man....well I made the girls get out of the car and move away from the interstate for "safety". Then I got the bright idea that if any of them needed to "pee" they could take advantage of the tall weeds on the side of the road......
So we made it safely to Mississippi to check on our property, water the trees we have planted and do some work. So far we have planted 2 camillias, 12 blueberries, 4 pecans, 3 peaches, 3 plums, 1 quince and 1 apple... Next will be pears, figs, and more apples. I'd like to build a pavilion for an outdoor kitchen soon. The roof will catch rain water for use, and I would like an attached pergola for growing grapes.
I've finally identified this tree. It's mayhaws! and the property has plenty of them.
I can't get around without my handy boots. Before my Father had his stroke...he asked when was I going to quit wearing those "ugly boots". When they wear out...that's when!
This is an area of the hill that was cut and damaged somehow. Maybe when they clear cut it. Anyway the water rushes this direction down into the creek. We're trying to stem the erosion by placing small trees we cut down across it, planting shrubs and plants, and seeding grass.
The trees are helping as well. You can see the sand beginning to cover the edges of the tree. So I'm hoping this soil is no longer making its way into the creek and away!
Wonder what kind of berry this is?
Here's another little tree doing great. We gave them all a nice drink of water while we were there. Hope it lasts. There's no rain forcasted for the next ten days and it will be well into the 80's.
