Caviar Anyone ?

My brother caught this fish that just happened to have 8lbs of eggs. So at $70 an ounce for California White Sturgeon we decided to look for a recipe to cure it at have homemade caviar. It turned out amazing and we have gorged ourselves all week on caviar like gluttons. Here are a few pics .

Japanese Maples Anyone ?

I picked up a couple of dwarf varieties last fall and we decided to re-landscape our front yard and tearing out our lawn before summer. I live on a corner lot. My wife likes the idea of a few Japanese Maples as focal points in the yard so we picked up 3 different colored varieties today. A Coral Bark, Shindeshojo and a Bloodgood. My dwarfs are Shanai and Hanami Nakishi for my backyard area. Any one out there in THP land into JM's at all ?

Video tour of my backyard

28 February 2018 - 01:19 PM

I just uploaded this on youtube I took the video a couple of hours ago. Check it out and any feedback would be appreciated my friends. I didn't realize it when I first started with all the different fruits I was planting but its called backyard orchard culture. The philosophy is planting trees closer together sometimes 2 - 4 trees where you would normally plant 1 tree and grow it large. This method keeps them smaller and this way you use most or all of your fruit without wasting much and you can grow many more varieties and spread it out over the year. So between my 7 different avocados I have them year round. My peaches, pears, plums, nectarines, apple from May- November and my 6 mandarins from November-May and lemons/limes year round. Blueberries, mulberries, strawberries and raspberries from April- October. And last but not least this year I had peppers all year and many overwintered in the ground.
