Strawberry Fields For Ever
I went on what I call a research and development and foraging mission the other day. Carol calls it repurposing. Actually I was scrounging around the junk pile. Came back with the old stock tank, and three 16' cattle panels that the neighbors didn't want. All stuff that will be used.
Early garden doing ok. Lettuce is up in the cold frame. Onions and beets are peeking through. We ate our first bunch of asparagus this week. Tasted gooooood! A lot of the fruit trees are in bloom right now. Especially the wild plum along the fence rows. I think it is a little early. The wild plums have tendency to suffer from frost-bite. Our dwarf fruit trees in the yard are just starting to leaf out. They should be okay. Our Quaking Aspens are leafing out good. This will be the first full season for them. They should be colorful come fall. Looks like most of our current bushes made the winter. Raspberries are starting to green up. We planted more of them this spring. Blueberries are still in question.
Time to go. Things to see and people to do. Wait a minute that doesn't seem right. Oh well, onward and upward with the day. God Bless-----johnnyb
