The standard pantries in the house we bought last year were almost unusable. Long deep shelves and only 3-4 of them in a large closet sized area. Thank heavens they had doors. I designed
the shelves, my husband cut them out of MDF boards, I painted them with several coats of paint, and he installed them with aluminum channel. The channel allowed use of the shelf all the way to the back of the space. I counted and measured all the things in my food pantry to make the plan for how many shelves, how wide, tall and deep they needed to be. See the beginning and end result. It's so nice to be able to find things now. It turned out so nice, we did the 2nd pantry where I keep dishes, plastics, and mixed items for the kitchen!
I have two apple trees that I am planting. A honeycrisp and a Haralred. I am new to planting fruit trees and wanted to know if there is anything that I really need to know when actually planting them. They are pretty tall, well established I would say....not babes...lol. Any tips?

Good luck. You might want to check with some one about how close they are planted to the
building.... They look kinda close to a house? Roots do spread, & moving them young would be a good thing.
I'm convinced there is a flawed technique that is repeated with every installation.
I've seen enough to know these corners are prone to failure and cannot be remedied. I
would like to see something like a contiguous, one-piece corner, say a foot long on either end. Does anyone know of anything like that on the market. I would like to recommend something that is not going to cause the same problem when a customer needs new gutters. Thanks, Charles

Have you seen the ad on TV for the black rubber spray? We are going to try it ... (hope it
If not then we will try silicon caulk, it might work and would be water proof too. What do you think?
