But I'm not going to burden you with the problems, I'm just going to brag about some SUCCeSSeS. I was given a couple of acorns last fall and decided to try to grow oak trees from them. Carefully following the directions, I kept the seeds in a dormant state all winter in the refrigerator. About a month ago I put the seeds horizontally in a pot of dirt, and now they have both germinated and sent Up their first new growth! I have no idea here I'm going to plant two oak trees, but I have a year to think about it, since they have to stay in pots for quite a while yet. We took off for several days of camping last weekend, but before we left I planted peas, lettuce, radishes and onions. The lettuce and radishes have sprouted. I was given some butterhead lettuce starts, which I also planted, but chickens broke into the garden and ate them down to the root. Oh, I- wasn't going to tell you that. But the good news is that some appear to be growing back, so I may get a head or two yet.

Highly acidic soil can cause blossom end rot, but the soil in our area tends to be more on the alkaline side.
