Rain water is awesome for your plants. It has all kinds of ion exchange and polarity wizardry going on. Use it to make compost tea as well! D

Thanks y'all. Got it on order. D

Will these root? Thanks, D

I don't know Rodney. Never had it before. If you have some you like I'd certainly or trade for some. Regards, Dan

Anyone have this to trade or sell?
Thanks, Dan

Hi John, I would argue that both of those contribute to freedom though.....  :) D

Silversapote, Thanks for the insight into the taste. I'll be looking forward to it.
  My little Pringle's had a quickly rigged frame put in it which was intended to contain a heat lamp....but the power was off for at least 5 days. Not just rolling blackouts, but a pole actually fell, and we weren't top priority. So it seems to have survived multiple days of close to single digits. I wish my satsumas were as hardy.

Looks like it went from fogging you to mooning you! D

Brad, please accept my apologies for dragging you into that. I owe you a beer. D

Hi Benoit, we won't know for sure about some of the citrus for several weeks. Most of it is dead. I haven't heard about avocados yet. Mine are all small and were sheltered. I got mine from John Fairey as well. It seems to be fine. I have not tasted any fruit yet, but was told they are good. Contact John Fairey Garden about seeds. Regards, Dan.

bs - If you have no time for my statements then don't waste my time or yours. You did not, as far as I can see, post ANYTHING when Brad started an avocado meetup notice. It was on Feb 21. Anyone can look for themself. Just in case you lost track of time, I do remember you being obnoxious when he posted something similar a year or so ago.
We both live in states that are wide open. Everyone is free to choose masks or not. Get over it.

Awesome! I'm sure several will want to. Everyone can take any precautions they want. Looking forward to it! Let's p.m. D

Funny. I didn't see you talking your garbage when Brad Spaugh said exactly the same thing. All hail the bs hypocrite!
I really appreciate your insight about plants and trees, but I have no use for your social crap. How many masks do you wear? 2? 3? What does this have to do with fruit? Can we stay on topic?

Hi Folks, Before the whole covid thing started some of us were talking about getting together to swap plants, stories and maybe lies about plants... I think it's time we move on. I suggest we set a time early this Summer and proceed. I'm as done with masks as Brad, but if a mask makes someone more comfortable wear away! Anyway, it might be best to take this to p.m.s so we don't waste everyone else's bandwidth. Let me know! D

Silversapote, my leaves look more like gregeii than pringlei  as well. Maybe a maturity issue? I don't protect mine from Sun or heat at all, unlike several other plants I try to grow. Give it some water and it's good. D

  There was discussion of pringle's sapote being cold hardy a while back. The best known tree was in Houston, at a nursery. It was said to have endured 13F. That was a mature tree.
  I have a small one planted in S. Texas. It is on a ridge, exposed to whatever comes. In our last taste of "real" Winter, the 3 foot seedling was exposed to close to single digits with just a small frame over it. I had rigged heat lamps, but as was widely reported, we had no power for about 5 days due to blackouts and a power pole down close by.
  I thought it was toast, just like our citrus, but it is putting out new growth! More evidence that they are quite cold hardy.

From what I have been told and seen in my own trees, apples can produce fruit in much lower chill hours than would be ideal for them. They basically become indeterminate and produce several small flushes of fruit throughout the year. D

Hi Derek, I can send you a bunch of cuttings in a few weeks. I need to train my apples. I have the usual suspects, anna, ein shemer etc. Do you have plums? I need to cut them back as well. D

Merry Christmas to all! The greatest gift from The most high.
And yes, we had lasagna last night. Yummy.

The post office delivered my plants to the wrong address....but four days later they showed up and I can't be more pleased! They were packaged very well and did fine in their extended travels. Thanks to Evan's attention to detail all is well. Thanks Dan.

I can only tell from their flowers. The male flowers hang like a bell and the female flowers are upright. D

Looks like they are self pollinating. Pm sent. D
