hello !

I want to stay in touch and see how your plants are doing . I live in Jax Fla. and have planted a hood p[ear and some other one that I forgot what it is..are your self pollinating ? I also have a Flordaking peacha nd am picking up a maypride this sat. Ive got a anna apple and will add a dorsett golden this sat as well.
Tell me how old your plants are , are any fruiting and how are the blueberries ? I have two. Ive got thompson seedles grapes and concord seedless..Im getting a relaince plant this sat. I also have 3 typs of plums but fear a mess because none seem to flower at the same time therefore killing my pollination needs ...any ideas /pix ?..well im at work so ive gotta go but none of my plants seem to be old enough to fruit and just wanted to her about yours.
