We have the exact same tree! It is loaded with fruit this year. Not sure why, maybe the deer left some fertilizer.

We have a small pear tree in back, but it did not grow out, only straight up. When it does get pears the top most branches start to hang over. The racoons love that tree. There is a momma coon who brings her three babies with her and they climb that tree.

Of course, our GSD has something to say about that too!

We have a young plumb tree that must be a little over 10 years. Sadly, it doesn't bear fruit every year. This year it seems to have concentrated on growing. That plumb tree is close to 12-13 feet tall now.

They're ripe. Ripe jalapenos turn red. I prefer them green though, personally. The texture will be softer now.

Default Blueberries!

Oh what I wouldnt give for rain and cold. My garden is done, I just hope I did it right.

Here is a link that helped me get started; When to Plant Your Zone 8 Garden


Thanks to all the gardeners for the help, it was because of you that hopefully my garden will grow!

Default What's eating my beans?

My green beans are severely damaged every morning- so I'm guessing that something nocturnal is at it
I removed a few slugs off the plants a few weeks ago and haven't seen any more after that. And out here in Colorado we don't see many snails or slugs anyway. I've moved the mulch under the plants a bit to look for earwigs but I haven't seen a thing so far! Any suggestions/ideas? These plants are flowering but some of them have no leaves- every new leaf is eaten promptly.
