I use my son's skateboards to roll them into the basement. what is the largest size container
all the figs are ripening very slow this year, the almas are huge & green. but I have a big row
of elmer swensen grapes waiting to be turned into wine & am trying to discover some used for
cornelian cherry & aronia. the cornelian cherries laying on the ground taste best, sort of
consistency of a ripe persimmon.
in the hazelnut front, I have a rutter hazelbert that is about 12 ft high & wide after about 4
year full of nuts, clusters of 4-6 nuts not unusual.
