Re: Gophers

I do, I just shove nearby weeds in the opening to block the hole. 15 is excellent. Last year I totaled 72. If the Victor is like an easy set or a macabee, you can put peanut butter on the back of the trigger, but I just pull nearby weeds, ball them up between my hands and stuff them in the hole to b...

Re: What is your mango tree doing right now?

The mangoes haven't been enjoying the cold weather nearly as much as I have. I lost Creme Brulee, Shamsul Asamar, Oro, and several branches from Maha Chanook. Alphonso on the other hand is looking better than ever, sending out tons of leaves. It seems that allowing the horse manure to get too close ...

Scion Exchange 2020

I am bringing several varieties of deciduous trees to this year's exchange, from fig to persimmon.

I will hold off on the Annona and Mango for now, as there's only slim margins for success in grafting them now.

I will be on the lookout for a few things as well.

Re: Gophers

I'm at 57 now, and more on the way. Trapline traps are working marvelously, victor easy sets working well, macabees are making gophers smart, so I'm removing them from rotation. Breaking up the runs after catching them exposes just how large a distance they travel underground, but it's a burden with...

Re: Gophers

I'm up to 50 now.
Last year I set a record of 60, and I expect to set a new record this year.

Re: Gophers

Up to 45 now, but more on the way.
All the rain has them very active.

Happy to report that trapline has updated their traps ever so slightly, but it is the fine details that improve success.
