A little pre-Civil War history on the naming of a particularly good cherry: an insult commandeered as a compliment.

Meantime, I guess one peach got missed by the grape Koolaid? Because it’s taking all the beak bites while the others have been left alone, for a week now. And I am leaving it exactly like that so it’ll continue to. The Erva cage, unstaked to leave it deliberately rattle-ly under paw, is keeping the raccoons and possums from daring climb the trunk.

We are actually, finally, for real getting critter-free and bird-free peaches!

Well, hooray for the sacrificial peach! It dies so others may live…or something like that.

Wonderful! Do you sprinkling dry grape Koolaid on the fruit? Or mix the grape Koolaid with water (how much?) and spray it? Gotta give it a try.

We raise delicious strawberries. I don’t know the variety, but I do know that they are too fragile to be transported to market. You can only taste them by raising them (or living near me and being my friend.)
