Last week was very cold and so I kept all the fruit trees covered--hoping that would protect the fruit tree blooms. It looks like the pear blooms and nectarine blooms survived but are wilted; while the other peach and plum trees waited till after the week of frost to bloom. There was lots of bees on those trees yesterday.
It's sad to say, but the 5 year old Peach tree I planted from Arborday.org died this year. I can at least say I got a fruit harvest off of it last summer, and…
According to Ecowatch:"90 percent of the foods humans eat come from just 30 plants. Out of tens of thousands of plants we could eat, mankind chooses to consume only about 30 of them. It’s crazy to contemplate how limited our diets are compared to all of the different foods we could be eating".

Imagine that a century later, Germans celebrated a holiday offering a whitewashed version of German/Jewish history that ignored that holocaust and the deep antisemitism of the culture. Imagine that the holiday provided a welcomed time…Continue
