Many thanks to Glenda Castleberry for filling in while I was on vacation these past cou- ple weeks. I have been in Ketchikan and am pleased to say that I caught four sil- ver salmon, two small hali- buts, several rockfish, pots full of shrimp and crab, lost count of the number of pink salmon (some were used as crab or shrimp bait), threw back two king salmon (no king tag on my license), some small floun- ders, two red Irish lords and a really ugly fish called a Weymouth. Oh, and one sea cucumber. The fish- ing was slow according to the locals, but I don't care, I had great fun and the weather was fine. Years ago my folks took a summer trip to Europe. Dad was excited about it but reluctant to leave his garden when the corn would be ripe. I gave him a hard time about it then, but I totally get it now. I was anxious about leav- ing, too, but in fact I hardly thought about my garden at all while I was gone, proving that, with good friends and good planning, it is possible for a gardener to take a summer vaca- tion. I installed water tim- ers on the vegetable garden and several other spigots around the house. Kalyn Hochstrat kept an eye on the garden, Peg Tiedemann tended the chickens and Kara Boyle took care of the cats and everything else.

I have plen- ty Of work to do pulling weeds and mowing, but it really is not as bad as I'd feared. With the dog out of town, the raccoons have crept back in to eat the apricots, but Je is on -rt and will soon have them on the run. There is a message on my answering machine con- taining a gardening ques- tion. The recording was not completely clear, so I'm going to try to answer the question I think I heard, about planting trees this time of year. It's not advis- able to plant trees in the heat of the summer, but if you purchased a tree late in the spring and it is still in the pot, it is going to suf- fer and possibly die unless you take measures. I'm no expert about trees -- or anything else, for that mat- ter -- but my advice is to either keep the plant in the pot for now or plant it temporarily in a shady part of your vegetable gar- den. In either case it will need deep watering every seven to ten days. There are several products on the market that will help a stressed shrub or tree. Use any of them according to label directions. If yo u keep the tree in the pot, put it in a place where it will not get direct sun on the pot, either on the shady side of the house or tucked under some dense foliage, and plan on leaving it there FISK COMPUTERS Complete systems, new and used Specializing in laptop repair and rvi I Laptop LCD and Motherboard placement Networking wireless and conventional Virus and spyware removal, data recovery Larry Fisk 208-253-6073 until the ground tempera- ture is cooler, mid- to late- September. The problem with leaving the tree in the pot is that the roots start to grow in a circle, which can sort of choke the tree. When you do get it out of the pot you will need to prune those roots before planting. If the tree roots were balled in burlap they are probably already dried out unless you've been watering it daily, in which .case you have a chance of saving it. Leave it wrapped and bury it up to the graft in garden soil. when you put it in its permanent spot in early, fall, give it some root stimulator and water it deeply. Stop watering it when the nighttime tem- peratures get into the lower 20s. You can sometimes find great bargains on trees in late May and early June, but the mortality rate is high on trees planted after the soil temperature rises past a certain point.
