Maybe our crab apple is about to blossom. I've never seen it blossom, though, and it's four years old. Too warm here in the day time and too cold at night - those blossoms just freeze out, I think.
I'm planting peas and lettuces this weekend. Gosh, I've missed those freshest of edibles! If I can get them covered on the coldest nights they'll be fine. We're having the driest of springs so far and it's disconcerting to us all. At the general store after church on Sunday the whole Wetmore community seemed to be there eating bowls of chili and washing it down with hot coffee. And everyone was talking Drought - with a capital "D". We'll be out there doing rain dances before long. I'm into it.
I've been getting my little seedlings ready. Transplanted scores of them this weekend. I think there's easily 40 tomato plants. What a glutton for punishment I am. No, really I'll give most of them away to co workers and friends.
I wish I could protect them always and keep them from the worry of Drought.
