The drought is over!!!!
After the flood on June 11th, we have had no rain until Tropical storm Hermine dumped 3-12 inches depending on where you live. Now that the ground is moist and the ponds are full, I am looking forward to some cooler weather.
We had Pineapple Quince this year and mixed it with Li Jujube to make a darn good pie with almost no sugar. It was still pretty sweet with just a tablespoon of honey.
We are expanding our orchard to include another 7 rows this winter. We will be planting lots of Shinko Asian Pear and Sugar Cane Jujube.
I dont have any pictures from the orchard right now so I will post stuff from the house.
Here is a picture of a peach seedling. This tree was only 18 months old in the picture and had already reached 9-10 feet. It is even bigger now. This might be a good rootstock for peaches at the land. It would incredible if it made decent fruit. I would name the cultivar Texas Peach Bomb or something stupid like that.
