    We planted 5 more fruit trees today. That puts us at a total of 14.

    4 Apples
    2 Pomegranates
    2 Cherry
    2 Apricot
    2 Pears
    2 Almonds

    Assuming they all survive, we are now done with planting fruit trees. But I am a bit worried about one of the Almonds. It was planted last year and it did give us a few nuts this year but it is not looking as good as the other trees and did not grow nearly as much this year as the others.

    Part of my summer project this year was digging drip irrigation to each of the trees. That made a HUGE difference with all of the trees except the problem Almond. All of the others nearly doubled in size just this year! I highly recommend doing drip irrigation for trees. It makes watering go from about a 2 hour task to about 5 minutes and the trees love it.

    Next year's projects are going to be chickens and bees. I am hopeful the bees will be a huge help with the trees and gardens. (And if they give us some honey and beeswax, that will be a nice bonus too.)

    Nothing earth shattering, just what I usually do when I see a good sale. Bought two flats of canned black beans @ .45 each, and two flats of Denny's Chunky Chili @ $1.18. That's the limit... so I'll go back tomorrow.

    Today I checked my bourbon stash, and found it inadequate to the needs of an old curmudgeon who may be locked away during three months of rioting, or the liquor stores closed or burned down (blasphemy!). Bought an extra six pack case of the biguns'. If I have to shoot twinks, I'm gonna need a shot or two. Helps with the rheumatiz' dontcha know. Still, I won't chase 'em past the sidewalk... but some buckshot just might.
