Early Spring Activities 2017
Its been a busy spring with little time for posting. But here's a few shots (from two weeks ago) of the garden clear off, first till, cherry tree planting, etc.
Tilling in the winter rye.
Last of the over-wintered collards. They were really yummy!
The cherry trees. One "White Gold" and one "Regina". Both sweet and semi-dwarf.
Dad's red buds. He gave me these several years ago as 12 inch sticks from the Arbor Day Foundation. They didn't even have roots! I didn't have the heart to put them in the wild border back then so I gave them one season in the vegetable plot to establish themselves. Last year was the first time they set seed. This year I'll try to collect them to start more.
