Poor Country Boy Gardening

Poor country boy gardening is when you want or need something for your garden and can't afford it. So you get creative on how to get it trading or bartering for it. digging it up out of an empty field or off the side of the road or a neighbors yard.

I wish thet would have mentioned the bark color and the fall color on those black Diamond crepes.  Maybe because the bark color is typical greenish tan, and I would guess the fall color is spectacular bright oranges and crimson, with all that pigment in their leaves.  Bark color and fall color are too things that some crepes are famous for, like the ever popular Natchez; large white flower clumps, cinnamon new bark, and orange fall color on leaves that are bright green in summer, all on a large full sized (25' +) grower.
