How does one know if a plant is getting too much direct sunlight?
@WhyTea-Gardener i have a kiefer pear tree and the fruit is starting to come to term. The fruit does not taste very well to eat straight from the tree and I was told that it is best used for jams and jellies. Are there any other uses as far as cooking is concerned that you are aware of? I've never seen a pear cobbler or pie etc.
@Dan iiii for some plants it's not the direct sunlight but rather the high temperature
@Dan iiii Depends largely on the plant but the surest way to tell is if it gets sunburned. Yes, plants get sunburned. They affected portion will turn white and papery (I'll post a pic below). If you're asking about time of exposure, remember that plants do their actually growing in the dark so too long exposure can cause the plant to grow more slowly or not fruit, etc.
@Deleted User I'm more familiar with the jams and jellies myself but a cobbler or pie might be nice. Follow the same recipes as for apple and I'd expect it would work out fine.
Keeps them off your crops and free meat!
And you get to shoot something!
Have any of you dealt with or been a beekeeper? I think I'd like to get some hives soon
Nice, do often sell a lot of honey or do you end up using most of it on your own?
We have a fella that sells it out. They crank out quite a bit of honey. Tens and tens of pounds
Wow, how many hives do you have?
We've pulled north of 30 so far out of two this year
If you don't mind me asking how much do you get from all that money wise?
A bottle (about half a pound) retails at about eight bucks. Beekeeper charges about 1/2 to 2/3 of that.
@Deleted User could you describe the flavor/texture of the pears?
Juicy as hell, little gritty and have an earthy taste moreso than you'd expect
Can anyone ID this plant?
Queen Anne's lace, I think.
They're all over the yard at our new place.
Not in a garden.
It's in the carrot family tho
Wild carrot/queen Anne's lace looks like it.
You may not want to pick or walk around while wearing shorts. Chiggers suck.
Yeah I've had them before. Horrible.
So, is there a way to ID apples? We have a tree and we don't know what kind they are.

Closeup coming through, really slow uploading for some reason.
