The tomato flats are now empty and plants that had reached the grow lights, are now in one gallon pots. I ended up disposing of several smaller plants. As usual I seeded more than I needed.
I dug and pulled out the grass that had grown up to the trunk of the plum tree. Once I had cleaned quite far from the trunk, I brought out my favorite landscaping tool...the weed whacker. I put on my eye protection, flipped the weed whacker over and took the grass down to dirt. I keep doing it, and when the ground dries and the sun is bright and hot, I use my vinegar plant killer. It doesn't work properly unless you take the grass down to stubs and the sun needs to burn the sprayed foliage. Done this way it works as well as Roundup.
Above is tree number one in the orchard of three. What? You don't think that constitutes an orchard. I've made up a rule. If you have more than two fruit trees beside each other, that is an orchard. So, as I was saying, I've done the one. I just need to get the other two done tomorrow hopefully. That will leave three more fruit trees and three fruit bushes. I have my work cut out for me.
Look!!! Baby plums.
