First pecans of the 2013 harvest

Submitted by Harold Yates, Yates Farms.
Ami and Christi Whitley brought in the first pecans of the 2013 harvest. The pecans were gathered on Yates Farms in the Bethel Community where harvesting is moving into full swing. We’re fortunate in our area that the improved pecan crop looks favorable this year. After the record drought in 2011 and a total crop failure, our orchards were severely stressed. During 2012 we experienced a tough year with a heavy crop set on drought stressed trees resulting in poor quality and low prices. It was sad but we’ve had to spend a good part of 2012 and 2013 removing dead and weak trees from the orchards. You just have to keep on going and take a long term view with fertilizing, spraying and pruning through good times and bad to stay in the pecan business.

San Saba Garden Club October Yard of the Month

Submitted by Patricia Warren.

San Saba Garden Club's Yard of the Month is located at 1101 W. Dry Street. The homeowner is Janice Wilder Bates, who moved here approximately 3½ years ago. The property was built in the 60's by Woodrow and Vada Johnson. Janice changed the property by adding flower beds around the trees in the back yard; adding a flower bed near the back patio for some shadeloving caladiums; and modifying the front flower bed from the original foliage to a mixture of some of her favorite plantings. Janice loves colors, birds, squirrels and hummingbirds, so many of her plantings are selected to attract these things.
