Undying Hope for Fruit!

Oh, my poor yard up in town, where we dream of the cabin. I cannot do without Circle Trees cherry no drain potgrowing things, and for years I have sought fresh apples and peaches and such right off my own trees. That should not be so difficult, should it?

I finally pulled the dead apple and peach trees out of these pots and left them unceremoniously on the curb. Last summer I went to Lowe’s seeking big pots for these trees and all they had (that I could afford) was these foo-foo plastic ones. I foolishly left the saucer attached to the bottom. How was I to know that sauce would keep the whole thing from draining? We had a hard rain one day and the potted trees filled to the brim and stayed that way until I got another look Monday evening after work. By then, a cold front had moved in a chilled the place way down. I tipped the pots to drain them, but still left the darned saucers on.

After the second occurrence, the trees were goners. I at last forced the saucers off and the water pouring out stank. I got large nursery pots from a greenhouse Circle Trees apple drainsupply place. Here are my new trees bought at the less than half price end-of-Circle Trees pots from rightsummer sale at Stark Brothers (great place). I got two Idared Apples, a couple Zestar Apples, a Starkspur Ultramac and a Sweet Starkrimson Cherry. I did have to put the unplanned cherry in an old pot, but with NO SAUCER and fresh dirt. I got bags a Miracle-Gro soil for all and put a peat dressing on top…they’re going to do GREAT!

I only wish my trees and bushes were as undying as my idealistic hopes!
