First off, if we planned a get together in Moab, I'm sure jeff, Jim, MoC, Jim, Dave, David, TRex, Jody, Mike, Bill, (man I can't think of all the rest of the names on here), would all try to make it too... Hehehehe

Second off, if you made it all the way to Arizona and didn't come through California, you'd be in trouble!!!

Aaaand, I'd assume, with that trip, you'd pull the CJ!!!

I'll look into this, but it would be a couple years before it could happen, for me anyway.

Maybe I could swing by and pickup Jody. He's sorta on the way. MoC ain't too far off base either. Jeff could swing down and meet us at some point. Shoot... we're going to need a car hauler! Jeff probably has something we could use??

... of interest. Maybe!

Here is a good pictorial of freeze protection on stone fruit in Florida. Our low was around the mid to upper 20s last night. I want to keep the peaches on this peach tree. Peach trees require something called "Chill-Hours". That term relates to a number of hours under 40 degrees. After the tree acquires all the Chill-Hours it needs, let's say 500, it will start to bloom. That means 500 hours under 40 degrees. Once the blooms pop, and you get a freeze, Bye-Bye fruit! Ice forms an insulating layer for the buds. Ice actually gives off calories and protects the bud. See in the pics how the ice encapsulates the branches. You must continue to run the sprinkler until the ice melts... which for me will be around 11:00 AM. Just because you turn a sprinkler on doesn't mean your going to save the tree, however it works very well. Sometimes the ice will get so heavy it will break the branches, which is a risk. Hope you enjoyed the micro-ag lesson!

*NOTE- Stone Fruit include peaches, plums, nectarines, etc. If you want to grow these trees in your region you need to check with the local Extension office, state University Horticultural Dept, or buy from a well respected nursery. You need to know what are the average chill hours in your region, and buy the fruit trees accordingly.

I hope to have some Jeep pics this afternoon. I hope you don't mind the intermission!!

I like the pictures. Are those trees on a mound? I have a couple of peach trees that I planted a few years back and they seem to get too much water where they are. You've got allot of pine trees too, what are the thicker trees in the left?

Hey Jim- No, the trees are on flat ground. Probably has the appearance of a mound due to the frozen circle from the sprinkler. My yard is flat. The trees to the left are Leyland Cypress. They make a great barrier. They were here when we bought the place... can't figure why the PO planted them there! The pine trees are on my neighbor's place. I cut all mine down as they were infected with Southern Pine Beetle. I let an old man come in with his skidder and remove them.

If your peaches get too much water you should relocate them. They should be on well drained soil. If you are all clay, you don't have any well drained soil!

We have clay everywhere around here. There's sometimes a goos layer of top soil though. I think my next fruit trees will be on a hill side. They'll drain good there and there's good dirt too.

We sure get off track on here don't we. Do you care? I don't care.

Hillside is better than flat ground if you are planting on clay. Or, you can actually go into an area with a rubber-tired backhoe, trench out the clay and replace it with good soil.

I sure enjoy "talking" with you guys. We won't talk much if I wait on Jeep work! At least at this time on THIS thread!
