Fruit trees for Burleson County

We have a 25 acre property in west Burleson county 13 acres of which are meadow. The soil is PaB Padina fine sand, 1 to 5 percent slopes. We will drill a water well and thus be in a position to irrigate perhaps one acre of fruit trees. Also, we anticipate the need to prepare the planting sites with manure compost or some similar mixture as the soil has 1% organic matter.

I would like to know which fruit trees are most successful in the area. Specifically which varieties of peaches are grown in this type of soil?

Bluebonnets and pasture grass

My husband years ago planted bluebonnet seeds and ever since then there has been bluebonnet plants popping up in the late fall. My problem is that I also have a lot of grass that eventually outgrows the beautiful flowers. The plants also grow beyond the little hill and onto the flat ground around it. My husband passed away three and half years ago and this hill of bluebonnets is a sweet reminder of him. He used to cut off the seeds every year when they started popping out to ensure he would have some to scatter again just in case. I want to get rid of the grass issue so I can see the bluebonnets much easier as well as share their beauty with those who pass by.

Should I spray the hill now with the Ortho Grass Be Gone? I've been at a loss as to what to do because I just don't want to lose what he did it or start over with seeds that didn't originate from his doings. I already have plants starting to pop up in the gravel driveway close to the hill.

burrs and grass

We have 26 acres 15 minutes northwest of Caldwell, TX. The soil is a sandy loam, a dusty fine-particle sand. The areas that we mow are covered in burrs. How can we eliminate this weed? The attached photo is of the burr.

We would also like to grow grass in this sandy loam around the house and shed. Our goal is to cut down on the dust and help choke out the burrs. Any ideas on what type of grass to plant or seed? We do not have an irrigation system.

Thank you for your assistance, Dave and Kristi Haley
