and by the way sawtooth oaks needs about 25 hr of sun light a day or they will not produce acorns.

I believe you mean 2 1/2 hrs. of sunlight per day? How much did you pay for the 12 foot oaks?

Hey guys I am sure you probably know this, but when you plant use some "Natures Helper" helps with the drought and rooting. Just FYI

Dang Bob, for that much cabbage I hope they came and planted them for you. Call me when you're going to get some next Spring. There are much better deals out there!

Its really good soil conditioner. It hold H20 and promotes fast root growth... Not too expensive but well worth the money!

thanks for the offer. no i had to plant them. ive look around and for the size i thought it was a good deal? they are over 3 1/2 inch caliper on the trunk. i hope to get some acorns next year.i bought 6 at lowes last fall and for 5.00 close out, #3 pots, i replanted them in mineral tube containers and filled them with composted horse manure. they are starting to grow pritty fast. i also bought apple,pare,plum trees. autumolive burning bushes and a few other plants that deer like to eat.i am trying to get my farm it to very good deer habitat. trying to improve the deer, i moved down here from montana and was a little dissapoited in the deer herd. the 3 buck limit has shore helped.

I'm doing the same thing with the fruit trees, etc. Don't be disappointed in the deer herd, Bob. The state Record non-typical came from Sumner County, 242" and some change. Plus, although smaller in body size, there are many more deer per square mile in the county you're in than in the densest MT areas. There are some big deer around! But I've seen some of the deer that come from MT and they are very nice. My last 2 bucks from Sumner County were over 200lbs. whole.
