Citrus plants tolerate very low light levels for 3-4 months per year, provided that the temperature of the air in contact with the crown is maintained between 1 and 4 degrees Celsius. At this temperature, the metabolism of the plants weakens, which improves their resistance to cold.

A short walk from where I'm living in South Korea, the whole south side of a small mountain has been cleared of trees and covered instead with solar panels to power the factory at the base. The greatest irony being that trees are the original solar power and do so much more. It's an incredible eyesore and a sign of very poor policy decisions by previous government.
"Plant more trees" sounds overly simple but the importance of trees is being forgotten，maybe it should be "protect the trees"?
On a side note, South Korea is ravaged by forest fires every spring, yet I see no signs of forest management. Trees were planted en mass after the war to reforest the hills, but without upkeep the dead trees, branches, and kudzu vines are dry kindling every spring. There's fire bans every year with dollars spent enforcing the bans, and seemingly none going to forest management. But workers will drive around cutting trees back from power lines and leave the branches in permanent dry brush piles at the edge of the road. I don't get it.

The purpose of this thread is to respond to stuff where people say "Paul, you need to contact _______ to get the word out" and I have now taken a hard position of "It turns out I am not able to do that. If you set it up, I will show up."

Dandelions have just started blooming! Yesterday it got up to 85, so I'm guessing it's time to put sulfur down.
Two questions, though:
1. We're supposed to start having a week of rain starting mid-week next week. Should I still put the sulfur down now? Or should I wait until the rain is over?
2. I'm a little worried about whether my chicken will think those little yellow buttons are something good to eat. When I put some granular fertilizer down in my daffodil bed, they started eating it all up! I have to assume it would be poisonous for them. Thoughts? Do I need to be sure to fence them out of the area for a month?

Is a huge branch too. Took me creative work to move it by myself.
