Posted on 2022-07-172022-07-17 by the_dr_blue07/17/2022 straw bale sampling and other afternoon torture We appear to have some potatoes in the straw bales. The Granny Smith apple is having a hard time. The leaves are turning brittle and possibly sunscalded? We are on mandatory water conservation until the city pump is fixed Monday hopefully so the most I can do is hand water it. However, this apple tree is the most westward facing so maybe it’s just having problems. Native Texas dandelion in backyard earlier.
