@GreenDragon , do you have anything you'll grow into the winter? I'm thinking main crop feels like raising children, sucker crop must be like having grand children. (I just don't worry about them the same way)
You can attic kiln those suckers in April/May! It's kind of cool pulling down kilned leaf while the current season is in the ground. I haven't taken the Pepsi challenge on my 'winter' grown vs summer grown yet, but look forward to it.Suckers!
I let these sucker intentionally after harvesting. The hummingbirds love them.

I've been waiting ALL YEAR for these stupid Morning Glories to bloom. Planted April 1st. Normally they start blooming mid-summer, but I only got my first bloom yesterday.

Just this morning, I watched a squirrel scurrying across the yard, carrying an entire, bright green, billiard-ball-sized, black walnut to his tree. He seemed to evaluate a number of different possible burial locations, before I lost track of him.Surprisingly he left all the walnuts.
