Spring Sun 25 April 2019


While I always hate to kiss winter goodbye, it is nice to see everything greening up. The pear trees and plum trees are blooming, and the cherry trees aren’t far behind them. The chokecherries are full of tiny flower buds ready to shoot out and berry, but it is too soon. We will see another freeze and depending on how long it lasts and how low the temperatures go we may not have a fruit crop. The trees have been lulled to life by the warm spring sun and I can only hope that same sun saves them after the cold.

I too can be fooled by the early warmth of spring, chomping at the bit to get the garden in so I will have plenty of squash for summer eating and for winter. The last of the spaghetti squash put up for the winter met the sauce last week. The mulberries gracing breakfast cereal are gone. And I am dreaming of grilled zucchini. But no, my mind tells me, no. Wait until at least Mother’s Day to plant. Patience.
