fertilizing the trees

I spent the last hour outside broadcasting a fertilizer mixture onto the yard in hopes of getting some pecans this fall. I have about a dozen pecan trees on my property, and had a really good crop 3 years ago. But the last several have been really poor to almost none. I know that pecans can run in cycles, and I am hoping that this year will be a good one for the nuts.

The Onion | America's Finest News Source™

The Onion | America's Finest News Source™ is not really much as it is a funny satire of the news. Definitely worth a visit.

Click the image to see larger image is time to garden!

I broke out the tiller today and plowed up a small section (about 12 x 20 feet) in my yard for the beginnings of a garden. It is still getting down near freezing some nights, so I will hold up for another week or two before putting out the tomatoes, peppers, and such. All I planted today was about 50 onions. I will need to till up more space for the other crops later probably. I am not going to do a really big veggie garden this year. If it gets too big, I find that I just don't take care of it very well (weeding and such).

The wind is really howling out there today. The top blew off my chicken pen, the garbage cart blew over, and I am keeping an eye out for two dead pines in the far back yard.
