mgm audio 122713 apple januaryGive the gift of an apple tree or plant one in your own yard to honor a friend or loved one with this birth tree. You'll need two trees or a nearby crabapple for pollination and fruit formation.

Look for disease resistant varieties. Consider dwarf apple trees that will fit the available space when mature and be much easier to harvest when it starts producing fruit.

Or consider a crabapple. These apple trees have smaller, less than 2" diameter, fruit. You'll enjoy four seasons of interest while bringing in the birds for added color and motion in the landscape.

Look for disease resistant crabapples and those with persistent fruit for the greatest impact, fewer problems and less mess.

A bit more information: Look for these and other apple varieties listed as disease resistant. Liberty is a crisp and juicy dessert apple. Freedom was introduced in 1983, ripens a week before Delicious and is great for pies. Redfree is an early apple that has limited storage life, but is a good choice for home gardeners looking for an earlier producer.

Poor Melon Harvest - Few and Tasteless Fruit

It's not your fault. Blame it on the weather when your muskmelon harvest is small or the fruit is tasteless.

You'll notice muskmelons lack the usual sweet flavor when the weather is dark and cloudy. Overwatering or excess rainfall as the melons ripen also dilutes the sweet flavor.

mgm audio 080316 poor melon harvestPoor pollination explains the lack of fruit. The first set of flowers are all male. The second set are male and female so pollination and fertilization can occur for fruit to develop. Cold rain and cloudy conditions can reduce pollination. Make sure to grow bee friendly plants in your landscape.

Very hot weather and drought can also prevent fruit development. Be sure to water plants thoroughly when the top few inches of soil are crumbly and slightly moist. Mulch with straw, shredded leaves or other organic matter to conserve moisture and suppress weeds.

A bit more information: Water properly throughout the season, manage weeds and mulch the soil. Keeping plants healthy reduces the risk of diseases that can also impact the fruit's flavor.
