Weekend Chores – Lots to do!

It’s a lovely weekend so hopefully we can get a bunch of stuff done. We’ve got peppers, corn and squash to plant. We’re still waiting on our new irrigation line, so redoing that will have to be postponed another weekend. But we also have a small apple tree to plant.

Pamina gave me scions for a Pink Pearl apple and I was able to successfully graft it. We’re going to plant it with our Black Arkansas apple so they share the same hole. I recently heard about this type of planting and I think it’s really cool. You can plant more varieties in less space. Unfortunately our grafts didn’t take. They started out gangbusters but then died. Oh well.
