    Japanese Plum Tree, they are great tasting, evergreen, and they don't die in the freeze.
    you can eat right off of the tree, dehydrate, freeze them, make pie, or jam out of them.

    Every time I see one, I have to grab some.

    Sam, I'm coming in a little late on this thought but it not to late. I should have mentioned it to you when you were digging up your heads and working on the pump. Why don't you add a tank to fertilize your garden. By adding it inline to your irrigation system just past the pump you can fertilize each zone of your system as needed. It's real easy just add a tank and air pressure to it to push the fertilizer into the irrigation system. I use to use a old fire extinguisher mix the fertilizer up inside then add air pressure and slowly release the handle to let the fertilizer release into the system.

    I reported all trees in separated pots
    Early Red Loquat Tree
    Gold Nugget Loquat Tree
    Vista White Loquat Tree

    this is them this morning.

    When they get larger I will have to place a 5 ft fence around them so the deer don't eat them, or the bucks dont strip the bark off of them.

    How long will it be before you can plant them out?

    probably next year.... Need to put a fence around them to the deer do not eat the leaves and scrape the bark off of them...
    working on the garden now...

    making six overhead trellises over walkway into the garden now, so the Indeterminate variety of tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, etc can climb.
    making a compost pile... going to see if I can get some horse manure, compost from the woods, etc...

    I may be making some raised cinderblock raised beds with my leftover cinderblocks.
    also drip irrigation etc...

    did I leave anything out? LOL

    I Could use more cinderblocks if anyone has some?

    Very impressive garden Sam. I can’t grow mold in a dark cave! It’s a calling I never felt. But yours looks great. Nice job
