|Difficult to see, but I circled some of the trees that are visible.|
Other than that, it looks like a great site for persimmon. The soil is rich and the water table is normally three feet from the surface. Like I said, it is Salamander's Swamp.
I considered calling Salamander but pride and the fact that he is really busy kept me from doing so.
So I called Mrs ERJ on my cell phone. She stopped what she was doing. She logged onto the internet. Found the Owner's Manual for the Ford 1720 tractor. Bought the manual (pdf). Looked up the info and walked me through it.
So I did not need to bother Salamander. Nor did I have to walk back the 3/8 mile and carry all of my tools. Nor did I have to leave his tractor unattended. It turned out to be a very good day because Mrs ERJ was a hero.
