I picked up 25 pecan trees last Saturday from a nursery near Colfax Louisiana. 10 Excel, 10 Creek and 5 Elliot. They are going in the back lot on 40 ft spacings. You should have seen the pile of garbage I pulled out of that back lot. Found two big chunks of concrete with the Brush Hog and lost my draw bar pulling out the briers with the teeth on the box blade. It's nice and trimmed now and I am renting a hole digger with 12 inch auger for both the trees and footings for the tractor barn. Will be another long weekend.
I am looking for 7 or 8 apple trees to put on the ridge between the old house and back lot. If I can find some of the Satsuma varieties we talked about I want to order a couple of those but I need to find a good place to put them, thinking I need a blocked northern exposure that gets a good morning sun.
I'll probably give the plow a try this month in the front acreage after we get a bit of rain, just to turn over the dirt and get rid of some of the overgrowth. I need to prepare for a planting of corn this spring followed by purple hulls in the summer.
