I just thought I'd post a picture of one of our beautiful trees flowering. About 80 percent of our trees have flowers in varying degrees and it seems a shame that any fruit that starts to grow from them will have to be pulled long before they mature. This is necessary so the young trees can put all of their energy into growing a stronger root and trunk system. However the fact that they look this good after having been planted only 6 weeks ago is very encouraging. I am certain Sandy will insist that we leave a couple fruit on the trees next year, but for the benefit of the trees themselves it won't be until 2017 till we get a real crop.
Also we have contracted Casey Well Drilling to drill a well for us. Hopefully they can get to it sometime in the next month.
