The Disappearing of Kristal Forest

 Kristal Portrait     Kristal Lorraine Forest, formerly  of Ithaca , was living  with her two  Calcutta street-dogs  in  Campo Verde,  Arizona,  when she decided that if she  moved to  Mexico,  she   could get by  on her  Social Security payments alone.    
   Kristal had picked up and moved plenty of times all alone before, but this time  she hired a local homeless man to help her  through the move.
   After everything had been  packed  away,  the landlord   inspected the apartment, and  handed Kristal  a wad of bills for the deposit refund,  Then she  drove off  with her helper and the two dogs.....in the Red Nissan SUV pulling  a UHaul trailer.
       When Kristal's family in California  hadn't  heard from her for three months and there had been no activity on her bank account, they reported her as a missing person.   Look here:  http://dogs-plot.blogspot.com/

  • The Dissappearing Plums

       For several years now I have been cultivating a pair of wild Plum trees growing  in the hedgerow.  I   also planted several planted several cultivated  Plum Trees six or ten years ago, each of which has contracted the Black Knot disease and died down to the natve, ungraftred stock which, like the wild Plums, is resistant to the Black knot.  Several of these trees have come back strong from the roots so I have planted a couple more Plums  grafted on Black Knot resistant root stock, from which I will  someday  cut scions to graft onto the old stock, and onto the Wiuld Plums.  Meanwhile, the wild Plums I have bneen cultivating have flowered and born fruit, and recently I returned to them wanting to try  the fruit and they were all gone.  Stolen maybe by  the desperate poor, the Arab State, Possums, or Racoons.  But I don't know why the Coons or Possums would do that .... we feed them so well otherwise. We'll get by.


  • Flower Bud Bust
    That warm spell in February tricked out most of my Pear blossom buds just enough that they burst into powder if you flick them now, some are more resilient, some have already  flowered .... maybe a tenth of my hundred or so due producers, but more then last year, which was a climate fluctuation disaster.
  •      There are few native American Fruit trees .... not Apples, not Pears, or Peaches or Sweet Cheries, but the North American Plum is one and we here are at one of the fingers of it's northern extent.  Maybe the Cayuga had them in their orchards along with the Pears and Apples and Peaches and so on introduced to them by the early Jesuit missionaries, but here are a couple thriving here on ?Dog's Plot through no intervention of our own and, since one can graft cultivated Plum types onto it, we will be doing that.
