I had local dogs trample my Jade bush beans 'cutting the corner', solved that by putting buckets at that corner. I had minor damage from snails. And have some mysterious leaf fungus attacking some of my planted 3 inch Fava beans. Looks like I may or have already lost a couple of favas. At this time here I see wild onion popping up everywhere.

Planted that tree 18 years ago, paid like $35. for it and since maturity it produces around 75-100lbs of fruit a year. It does take every 4th or 5th year off. It'll get pruned by 1/4 this year though, to many out of reach due height.
