Spud if you are able to grow apricots, I envy you!

Last yeasrs trees might be too root bound. i dont know. Ive had some end of year trees do well. I cut the winding roots so they spread out, and mulch and water well the first year. they might be set back for a year that way but survive for me.

I've been shopping for an apricot tree, but the prices are high.  $45 to $100 in this town.

There are some for $20, but they are last years trees.  Do you guys think they would grow OK?

What has been your experience with buying trees from a distant nursery?  Bare-root or in containers.

Daniel, LOLOLOLOL you are too funny.  Just think of it as being a conservationist.  You are helping the wildlife to thrive.

That's funny Daniel.  If they knew who provided that salad, they would probably thank you.

Barbare, my deer and rabbits respond very well to companion planting. It's their version of an all you csn salad bar.

Randall, I have used D.E. in previous years and promptly forgot about it until your post. Thank you!  Something is eating my plants too, they look fine at 7:00 p.m. and by 7:00 a.m. their leaves have been chomped. I'm going to pick up some today. We are suppose to get rain this weekend - wonderful!

Barbara, over the years, I've tried all kinds of home-made sprays. They've never worked, and it takes too much effort to brew them, especially garlic. I have both chicken wire and a type of field wire with narrow openings. I'm sure people think I'm growing fences and posts, not veggies!

King, onions are easy to grow (bulb starts, not seeds). When brown, I lay them out on my garage floor to dry for about 2 weeks, then store them in mesh bags.
