We're thrilled that two of our apple trees, the Arkansas Black & Candy Crisp, have lots of blooms (the Honey Crisp doesn't have buds yet). We're thrilled because this will be the first year they produce fruit.
The Dogwood are slowly unfolding their petals.
The maple tree leaves have a beautiful red top when they first appear.
We have lots of dainty gooseberry blooms this year (last year they were new planted and produced very little).
Lots and lots of blueberries!
Of course, springtime means planting. We're preparing the rows of mounds for seeds; the first things we will plant are carrots, spinach, and lettuce, all able to handle the cold. We've already planted our potatoes, and we have some beans sowed in the square foot planter we moved a few days ago (I hope we didn't plant them too soon, time will tell).
Are you seeing signs of spring?
Thanks for reading my blog, see you tomorrow,
