Oklahoma Ranch after the drought

View across the South Pasture

These pecans were planted as 2 ft. saplings in 1978 then grafted with improved varieties a few years later...I remember digging the post holes for them.  These are 40-50' tall now,  Note the splendid clover crop this season.

This persimmon has been producing fruit for at least 55 years.  It is the largest one I know of locally.

Orange Milweed, is disappearing in the area due to intensive mowing practices
