11 Tasty apples

first_imgYou can grow apples in most of Georgia, though the best varieties will differ within the state. Local growers, gardeners or nurseries, or your county University of Georgia Extension Service office, can tell you the best variety for your yard.Varieties with disease resistance are best.Size and spacing important considerationsThe size of a mature apple tree depends on several factors, including variety and rootstock. Varieties such as spur Arkansas Black or spur-type Red Delicious tend to be compact trees, while Mutsu (Crispin) and Jonagold are quite vigorous.Within the same variety, the rootstock can vary the size from full size to “semidwarf” (half to three-quarter size) to “dwarf” (25 percent to 40 percent of full size).Whatever you plant, most apple trees need to be cross-pollinated by a different variety. So unless you already have apple trees within about 50 feet, plant at least three varieties to make sure you get good cross-pollination.Consider yieldYou may be tempted to plant several trees when just a few may yield more apples than you’ll need. With good care and accommodating weather, a mature dwarf tree can easily produce more than a bushel of apples. A semidwarf tree can produce 3 to 5 bushels, and a standard-size tree can yield more than 10 bushels.Dwarf trees start to bear fruit earlier than either semidwarf or standard trees. The fruit quality will be better, too, and more uniform throughout the tree. Tree support and irrigation, though, are essential for dwarf trees.Site selection and purchasingSelecting a good site to plant apple trees is crucial to their success. Frost damage and disease pressure is greater in low areas. Apple trees need full sun to do their best.The soil should be deep (at least 24 to 30 inches of rooting depth), well-drained and moderately fertile. Avoid drought-prone areas.Buy trees from a reputable nursery. There are several excellent nurseries in the Southeast, but trees don’t need to be locally grown to be adaptable to Georgia growing conditions.Planting considerationsBefore planting, protect the tree’s root system from freezing, overheating or drying out. The best time to plant bare-root fruit trees is late winter to early spring, several weeks before it will start growing.Dig a hole deep enough to allow the tree to be set as deep or slightly deeper than it was in the nursery. The bud union, which separates the variety from the rootstock, should be 1 to 2 inches above the ground.Prune long roots so they will fit in the hole instead of bending them to fit. Don’t put any fertilizer in the planting hole. This could burn the roots.Cover the root system with soil, working the soil around and under the roots to avoid leaving air pockets. Water the tree well, and then fill the hole to a point slightly higher than the surrounding ground.Prune new trees when you plant them. The ideal tree to buy is a whip 4 to 6 feet tall. Bigger trees aren’t better trees. After you plant it, cut the tree off 6 to 8 inches above the height you want for the bottom limbs — usually about 2 feet above the ground.Depending on the variety and rootstock, a dwarf tree may produce its first crop in the second or third year after you plant it. A semidwarf tree should begin bearing within three to four years. A standard tree may not bear any fruit for its first five to seven years.You can get more information on fruit tree care at your county UGA Extension office. By David W.

Trail Mix – Chuck Hawthorne

first_imgCH – If you want to hear every word and every note, one of the last listening rooms is the Cactus Cafe on the UT campus. That’s one hell of a storied room. If you want to kick your heels up at a honky tonk, try The Broken Spoke or Giddy Ups. Somewhere in between are The Saxon Pub and Continental Club. The Paramount Theater is the place to catch the big acts. BRO – Best place for hunting vinyl? CH – You’ll have a hell of a good time if you can catch Walt Wilkins & The Mystiqueros in town. They’re not afraid to have fun, and the songs . . . well, you’ll see. CH – Try this. Check out Mystery Monday, hosted by Christine Albert, with her mystery guest, at El Mercado. Then cruise over to Donn’s Depot for the post-show soiree with Chris Gage behind the keys. It’s tradition. There’s something about songwriters from Texas that sets them apart from their contemporaries from around the country. And be sure to listen to “Such Is Life (C’est La Vie),” alogn with tunes from Steve Goodman, The Steel Wheels, Giri & Uma Peters, and many more on this month’s Trail Mix. BRO – Local music hero? BRO – Local band our readers should know about? CH – Matt’s El Rancho. You can’t beat the Tex-Mex food. A lot of deals have gone down there, music and other wise. I’ve heard LBJ held court there back in the day. “Amarillo Wind” and “I Will Fight No More Forever” are two of the finest songs I have heard all year. BRO – Favorite local distillery? CH – Out of town guests usually want to go to the Texas Chili Parlor for a Mad Dog Margarita, a la “Dublin Blues,” the Guy Clark song. We’re forced to take them there. You know, just being good hosts. It’s a tough duty. CH – Desert Door Distillery. They make a sotol that’ll make alliteration impossible. BRO – Favorite outdoor adventure? CH – I don’t hunt vinyl much, but I’m partial to Waterloo Records. I discovered Waterloo and credit cards around the same time. That was a mighty dangerous combination. Catch an indoor performance if you can. They have some great ones. BRO – Favorite local restaurant? Chuck Hawthorne certainly can keep company with all l of them. His sophomore release, Fire Out Of Stone, dropped last week. This collection of songs is as Texas as they come, rich with dusty boot honesty and echoes of the wide open Texas plains. BRO – Best place to catch a show? BRO – One place an out-of-towner should visit? CH – The patio at The Saxon Pub. Or camping with Libby Koch at Flathead Lake in Montana with a grizzly bear named Pucker. But the Austin thing to do is float the Guadalupe or Cormal Rivers with a cooler full of your favorite beverage. BRO – Favorite place for a post-show libation? CH – Ray Bonneville has a residence in Austin. If you can catch him in town, he’s the maestro that got me started. Folks like Guy Clark. Dale Watson. Ray Wylie Hubbard. Nanci Griffith. Ryan Bingham. And so many more. Their work seems to have an extra dash of kick ass and grit. If you find yourself in the Texas state capital, Chuck Hawthorne has served up a pretty solid hit list of places to visit. You can catch Chuck live at The Grove on August 4th. Later in August he has dates lined up all around Texas. For more info on those dates, as well as how you can grab a copy of Chuck’s new record, check out his website. Austin has long been on my list of places to visit, so I recently caught up with Chuck to let him dish on his hometown, one of the most musical cities in the country.last_img read more

Whicker: How many ways to miss LeBron James? Lakers counted them in Denver loss

first_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“The lights in L.A. are big, and sometimes you can get selfish and do what you want to do, but tonight we played together and got the win.”The NBA is so star-driven that nobody pretends a 4-time MVP won’t be missed, or that the Lakers could even compensate for the loss.“We hadn’t been through this before,” Troy Daniels said. “The guys were trying to figure out where to get shots from, be more aggressive, and it was tough for us. The second team had to get a flow, too.”Asked which of the maestro’s paintbrushes they missed more, coach Frank Vogel just laughed. “It’s hard to say with something like that,” he said. “All over. Offensive flow, defensive communication, quarterbacking, playmaking offensively, the ability to get guys good shots…Probably all that stuff.”The ball movement suffers when you get 18 assists on 39 baskets, and when you shoot 10-for-29 from three-point range. The focus, which James has a way of improving with an evil-eye glance or maybe a sharp sentence, suffers when you make that many passes to nowhere, or just lose the ball to the more eager hands of the Nuggets. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs center_img “The turnovers have been a problem lately,” Vogel said.Alex Caruso thought the general defense and the rebounding suffered, with Denver getting 10 offensive boards in that second half.“We just got away from the things that are successful, the solid defense and the rebounding,” Caruso said. “We didn’t box out, myself included. We were a shell of ourselves at times, I thought.“I think we had enough players without him to compete and win games. I really don’t think that was the issue tonight. It goes back to the same things.”True, but you win few NBA games with two men in double figures (Davis and Kyle Kuzma, who returned to bring 16 points). And it’s not a cliche to say James brings so much more than his stats, because the stats themselves are so massive. A week short of his 35th birthday, he is leading the NBA in assists per game and can become the first Laker to do that for a season since Magic Johnson (1987). He would also the first player who is listed as a forward to win that title. Wilt Chamberlain led in total assists in 1968, but Oscar Robertson averaged more.“Unless you’re on the court, people don’t really appreciate how vocal he is out there,” Caruso said. “We probably missed that a little bit, because he’s such a cerebral player. But it’s always up to us to fill that void.“I think we got pretty much the same shots as we normally do. Maybe we would have gotten one or two more open looks. But there were times when people went to Anthony and we got open 3s in the corner, got swing passes for open shots. We needed to stay true to what was working, and we got away from that when the rebounds and the defensive mistakes piled up on each other.”And suddenly the Lakers have a 3-game losing steak heading into the second Blessed Event of the season against the Clippers.Related Articles PreviousDenver Nuggets guard Gary Harris goes for a fast break dunk as Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis pursues during the second half of an NBA basketball game Sunday, Dec. 22, 2019, in Los Angeles.

The Nuggets won 128-104. James sat out the game because of a thoracic muscle strain. (AP Photo/Michael Owen Baker)ExpandLOS ANGELES — The Thoracic Bruise Telethon will begin shortly. Give until LeBron James doesn’t hurt any more.James was out Sunday night, officially day-to-day with an injury that one hopes isn’t as painful as it sounds. If he doesn’t get back for the Clippers game on Christmas Night, several TV and NBA executives will be evaluated, too, for symptoms of apoplexy and severe hypertension.Instead of sharpening their antenna without James, the Lakers played like strangers. They suffered 17 turnovers that cost them 20 points, and their defense was chasing the ball all night. They leaned on Anthony Davis, who came up typically big with 32 points and 11 rebounds, but their walkabout was severe enough for a 128-104 loss to Denver, which piled up 36 and 37 point quarters in the second half and had 31 assists on 45 field goals.“I’m proud of the unselfishness of our guys,” said Malik Beasley, who scored 16 off the bench in 21 ½ minutes for Denver (20-6). “We’re more than a third of the way through the season now,” Caruso said. “The games are getting a little bit redundant, they’re piling on top of each other. It’s a good time for us to re-engage ourselves, good for us to take a step back. It will be good for us in the long run, to cover up these weak spots, these lulls on defense and rebounding.”It will be good, for the Lakers, whenever James and Davis play. Sometimes the truth is too simple to resist: The next NBA champion will be the one with the fewest stars in street clothes. Davis sent a murmur through the seats when he slipped on a wet spot as he was committing his fourth foul. He came out of the game and flexed his knee repeatedly. He did re-enter the game, but Vogel used the word “tweaked,” which can be a ominous euphemism.“You can’t replace him with one person,” Caruso said of James. “He does what he does. He is who he is.”The Lakers did not have to confirm the obvious so resoundingly. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
