|The pollinator was planted near the yellow star. Existing Grand Traverse hazelnut bushes are circled in red. I am dubious about the more southern bushes getting much pollen due to the prevailing winds. I should have looked at a map before I planted!|
I talked with my friend Larry today. I suggested that he put a stake in the ground where he wanted the super-pollinator planted.
He told me that was going to be difficult. He has been working seven days a week for the last two weeks and is scheduled for seven days a week for the next four weeks. It is dark when he leaves for work and it is dark when he comes home.
I suggested that I just stick it in the ground where I think it should be. Larry thought that idea was "OK".
Mrs ERJ and I road-tripped over to his place. It is very scenic driving from Eaton Rapids to Bellevue, Michigan when you take the back roads.
|This is the more southern of the surviving Grand Traverse. They are sixty feet away from the pollinator.|
|These are the Grand Traverse that are due east and they are 100 feet from the pollinator.|
|The hole went here.|
|This photo shows the bush with Mrs ERJ as a back-drop to make the catkins more visible.|

Then we made a date of it. We went to Cornwell's Turkeyville
for a late lunch.
Sounds like and excuse for a return visit! :-)ReplyDelete
