|Kern and Mia dig the hole for the pluot in the front yard. Since our 'soil' is really a very thick clay, it's tough digging.|
|Bare root trees. You have to be sure fill the dirt in under and around the roots, not leaving any air pockets.|
I planted the raspberries into the raised beds I put on the North East side of the house a month or so ago. I was pleased to see the mulch was already breaking down, and I planted the bushes in the bed, but above 'ground' level. The rhubarb crowns also went on the NE side of the house, near the house. They won't get a LOT of sun, but as hot as it is here, I'm hoping they will flourish. I've always been told that Rhubarb wants full sun, BUT, in MY experience, it has done better for me with some shade in the hottest part of the day.
We worked right up until it was almost dark, then came in and I used my canned ground beef to make taco salad. The canned beef cut the prep time to about a third or less. One of my favorite quick meals!
