Though my apple trees have not yet begun to bloom, the APRICOT trees around the college's lake have broken bud and ARE in bloom --- mercy! Our temps today are going to reach mid 60F ... but as it's only February, we have another six weeks before we can really call winter 'over.' So these bright, hopeful trees are still in danger of losing their fruits when temperatures change yet again.
Our gardening class last night went extremely well - -but mighty late -- it was after 10 pm before I got to my friend's....
And today is the kick off for 'Plant a Row for the Hungry 2011" .... With the weather so pleasant, we're planning to be outdoors turning over the green manure, trimming, pruning, and readying the soil for planting next month.
Already the seeds we've started in the greenhouse are up, and in a few more weeks will be ready to transfer to the garden ... here comes spring!
Hope your day is bright and cheerful!
