The Old wood is producing again...
|There is much work to be|
done in order to make
it ready for the summer
Manure tea is steeping. My best yield was realized when I dumped an entire bag into the center of the bush, at the base, and just watered it liberally all season. During a recent renovation the contractors did more than a little damage to it by dumping liquids from the construction activity into my yard. They did not take kindly to my telling them off about the practice. As a reminder, do not allow contractors to just dump the liquids from their trade into your yard. Some of those chemicals can do permanent damage to grass, flowering perennials and shrubbery. Anything dumped may also end up in the water you drink one day. Based on what I see, I may have ten figs this year.
