Peach blossom

[Plantidote readers, please see special note at the end.] According to the Sunset Western Garden Guide, peach trees need some cold weather (below 45 degrees) to produce fruit. This winter, Zone 10 has been pretty chilly. Maybe that's why the peach trees are covered with blossoms. In fact, I've never seen so many blooms on these trees. But the book also says that if spring is cool and rainy, the peaches won't do well. They really like a hot weather growing season. So now we have to wait and see how spring turns out. In the meantime, the blossoms are beautiful and so colorful, they make the whole yard come alive!

NOTE: Good news: I have work. Bad news: I can't do Plantidotes until the work is done. Would anyone -- maybe a couple of people -- like to take over, starting next week? It's actually not difficult or very time consuming. I can provide details if anyone is interested. Just email me at: twig4now@gmail.com. KTXBAI! Read below the fold...

Time for garden planning

Things are looking grim, time-wise, this year. And the raised beds I was dreaming of are still just dreams. So I'm focusing on planting only two kinds of things: herbs and salad stuff -- different kinds of greens, tomatoes, and onions. Read below the fold...
