The Wadulisi Girls Arrival
We are so stoked to have them. Jujube, apple, pear, plum, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, grapes, muscadine, mexican plum, hackberry, honey locust, black locust, fruiting dogwoods, autumn olive, Hanson’s bush cherry, hardy kiwi, persimmon, chokecherry, currants, mimosa and hawthorn are just the tree and shrub species that will be available to them. I would venture to guess there isn’t another place with this kind of diversity anywhere near here and it ought to make for some seriously interesting honey.
Thank you again Mr and Mrs Wadulisi for letting them stay with us.
Well, that’s about all I got, take it easy.

Chicken Tractor – Check!
Ma here. On the OKA, we seem to always have a long list of things to try to accomplish. Between planting, tending, building and whatever else, our list seems it will never be complete.
