Really nice pic's of your plots MsBadger. I bet you see a lot of bucks through out the day in those smaller plots. Looks like you have some good land management employed there. How many years have you had the clover plots in the ground?

I started about 5 yrs ago on the plots ...but 10 or so years ago on the land management....In that time I've planted eng.walnuts..chestnuts,,hazelnuts...and gobbler oaks....maintained and pruned about 50 wild apples(bucks have taken out a bunch of them) planted pines and spruce and plum...pear...mulberry.. blueberry....aroniabush...seabuckthorn bush...cherry bush...persimmon... elderberry...grape...kiwi vines....I have cut and now mow close to 2 miles of winding /intersecting trails and fertalize the wild raspberry and blkberry that line them..the land has wild currents and gooseberry ...mixed hard woods with 200 red oak I now maintain some blk walnuts and hickory.

What's a wild current? Have you ever been to the QDMA forums? You would really fit in over there big time, anyway, it looks like you have been very busy the last 10 years.  No wonder your neihbors are all jelous of you![;)]

A current is a small bush that bare edible berries the ppl make current jelly out of...also called a ribe ...there are cultivated currents wht.s..... blk's...pinks and reds's all with differant degrees of flavor...if you have wht. pine stands they can cause disease in these and other trees...but resistant strains are available.....gooseberries are in the same catagory but bigger and differant taste....we have many ...many varieties of wild plants on our land...always finding something new....

I have never heard of ribe before. I have heard of goose berrie before. Could you post some pictures of a current bush's leaves,fruit, and bark for me? Some good information to know about current bushes, thank you MsB.
