White County Peach
White County peach breed is unique in that they have melting flesh when fully ripe. Low acidity and white flesh along with a wonderful flavor makes for a great choice in peaches.
Spring Flowering Bulbs
Most spring flowering bulbs should be in the ground by the early part of this month, with the exception of tulips which may be planted up until early November. Gladiolas, dahlias and other tender bulbs should be dug before the ground freezes, and storeed in a cool, dark area. Dahlia and begonias can be stored in a box of slightly moist peat moss. Gladiola corms can be stored in a paper bag without additional packing.
