The seedlings are doing well under the lights, when the winter decides that it is done, they will be ready.
The trees and bushes we ordered will be arriving within a few weeks!
My stress over the Bay Bridge was unnecessary, there were about three cars on the bridge and virtually no wind. It was the easiest ride over that thing ever, despite the snowflakes!
Fruit School (that's what the Extension office calls it) was interesting, it was great to find out more about the stink bugs, especially since there is supposedly some news of a bit of a die off due to the cold temperatures, but we will find out for sure in September, their boom season. The frustrating part of the lectures was one speaker had a slide presentation that included material he had presented to the group the previous year, which he flicked through to get to this year's materials, but I really was more interested in the presentation he did last year than this year. I hear that they are all posted on-line, I'm going to have to find it.
One thing I had never thought about was brought up, conventional farmers spray antibiotics on plants to kill certain diseases, I always thought about animals with antibiotics, not plants. Hmmmmmmmmm.
