Randall, I did some reading on the goji berry and am interested in how successfull you will be with yours. Where did you purchase your stock from? Are you going to plant now? Did you get bare root plants?  Curious whether it might grown here in zone 8 with high heat. A Berry Good Year ... :)

Oo-la-la: I got nearly 2" of rain last night! It all came in 30', much of which ran off, but I'm not complaining. The sun is at it's peak, drying out the ground (garden) quickly. My 2 rain barrels are full to the brim. Alas, the storm knocked my sweet corn down. Happens EVERY year, I swear! (And I do swear.)

On a good note, my goji berry bush arrived! I'm headed out to plant it right now. I already have two blueberry bushes, a gooseberry bush, plus the strawberries, red and black raspberries, and oncoming blackberries. Further, I've developed a taste for mulberries! I've ignored them for years, but grabbed a few off a nearby tree and enjoyed their flaver and seedlessness. Excuse me for saying it's a berry good year!

Not gall. Whatever it isis boring iinto the wood. And it's on the maple trees too.

I get large gall growths on my oak tree. Doesn't appear to harm the tree. I have many honeybees in my persimmon and basswood trees now! And with clover in my yard, they're having a veritable feast!

:-) Sentient, when you find spores on the flowers you know it's Delphinium. Spores are the useless looking long extensions, one on each flower. I found the name larkspur - is that the name you use?

Does anyone know what a large cluster of, small, bugs could be on my oak trees?? They're on the bark. When I took a photo they came out looking like tiny yellow jackets.
I've spent the past few hours searching the internet and still can't find them.??
