5079...is this list still working?...
- Sep 28, 2010Hmm, no mails since midjuli...
...and that this doesnt bore you only: Our biggest peaches are dead
since we had extreme latefrosts this year (the young leaves died), the
same problems on young castaneas and juglans´. We had the most extreme
mousepopulation ever in the following drought. The trees had very few
fruits due to extreme long&cold winter and late frosts killing
flowers. That´s a bit of this year in north germany. &greetings from
