|Red Flam Grapes - 2019|
Thornless boysenberries and Santa Rosa plums also performed well. Earlier in the year, carrots thrived during the cool rainy season. Disappointments were beets being devoured by insects. Still don’t know the culprits. They continue to destroy my fall beets. Tomatoes and peppers were also duds.
Two trees were removed: Blenheim apricot & O’Henry peach. A new Blenheim has replaced O’Henry. The nursery didn’t have any O’Henry’s in stock; so we hope to snag a bareroot peach this coming season. Farmer MacGregor insists. The Granny Smith apple also needs to be removed. I’m thinking of replacing it with a Royal Crimson cherry that has been developed by Dave Wilson Nursery for the San Joaquin Valley.
A variety of onions and garlic has been planted in the winter garden and look to be enjoying the cooler, wetter weather just like me. Hope you all are enjoying your garden too.
