Blowing in the wind

Blowing in the Wind

This dang wind that started last night blowing all through the night, then most of day took out 60% of my apricots and peaches on my salad fruit tree.😒πŸ₯ΆπŸ˜±πŸ˜¨πŸ˜°. My back yard is facing southwest on a golf course, nothing to stop the wind and the wind sounded like a freight train. I did not listern to the weather report last night, my bad! But weid enough, the nectarine branch on the tree did not loose one single fruit, go figure. This morning, my fig tree, which I did not prune last winter, was blown and showing a 40 degree angle slant. Lost seven almost ripe figs, and one branch was droping at a 45 degree angle. My tree is only one year old, so only a limited amount of fruits. The tree was only staked with a short thin bamboo that came with the pot; so at lunch, I panicked and drove to Walmart to get some camping stakes, came back in the afternoon, drove four of them in the ground, push the tree back straight and used ropes that I had to secure and prevent the tree from leaning backward anymore. And I do not know if the wind is playing with me, as soon I finished driving all the stakes and tying all the ropes, the wind died down!!! I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. This is the trials and tribulations of a newbie fruit trees owner in Las Vegas I guess.
