Here are the last shot that I took as it started to dump.

The little seedlings under the lights have transformed themselves into garden plants under the floating row cover. I have been picking a few of the outside leaves to go into my sandwiches, it won't be long until I will have enough to cook with.
The left of these two trees I found in the back yard, up against the woods with three very closely planted grape vines---all surrounded by brushy growth. It appears to be a peach or a nectarine. There is another young tree next to it, which appears to be some sort of plum with thorns, so it might be American, Canadian, Chickasaw or Blackthorn (sloe). I'll key the leaves out when they appear. I don't know how the folks who owned this property before us planned their plantings, but shade and three foot spacings are generally not good ideas. They certainly were consistent though. Next winter we will relocate the mystery plants. I relocated the grapes about a week ago, one was labelled as Cabernet Sauvignon, not the best choice for this area, but we'll see what happens.
The right photo is a victory, it is of the diseased old peach tree in the front yard that my husband has been nursing back to health, maybe there will be peaches this year!
