I should find out later today if my first red flesh apple to bloom got any fruit set. Hopefully there were a few later blooms and I got a cross with Redfield!
Interesting. Green Gage has not fruited for me yet. This is 3rd leaf for both trees and the first year of fruiting on Purple Gage for me…hopefully I don’t have something mislabeled. Both trees are from Raintree Nursery.
…time will tell
Some apple blooms Jonathan and Key apple
Apple leaves Key Apple
Pear blooms on my Ayers
And my favorite thing… Peaches are starting to form!
Also caught a bumblebee pollinating a flower
And a butterfly
Very nice. Is that borage?
Hi All, I am new to the forum. I bought a house with unknown fruit trees last winter. Now with the buds opening I think I could identify most of them.
I actually have no idea what it is I saw a lot of this growing last year and got a small bit of it and brought it home and planted it. It suprisingly came up again this year to my happiness. I will try and see if I have a pic of the whole plant.
Here is the plant @Naeem
I thought it was a pretty color and that is why I brought a tiny plant of it home. Only hoping it would come up again and spread in my yard.
My Orchard Projects
Ajuga, Poncho, ajuga.
(Commonors name is “bugleweed”)
Reading about it I see it is in the mint family. That is what first drew me to it is the plant looked similar to mint. I then wanted to transplant some because of the color.
I thought it was creeping Charlie. If it is, it is the most aggressive weeds in my yard. I regret that I did not recognize what it is the firs5 two years. By the time I knew what it is, it has taken over my lawn in many areas.
If you are referring to mine, I hope it is aggressive… I just as soon have it as grass
It better id’s with ajuga than creeping charlie
Your purple flowers remind me of creeping Charlie. Anything in the mint family seems to grow aggressively. I also learned it the hard way with chocolate mint that I planted in ground.
I seem to have an aversion to being able to make mint aggressive I have planted it on purpose to take areas over in different sections of my land and yard and for some reason it never takes off and spreads many places are still alive but just not moving anywhere else…
