The farmers almanac predicted it, I should have known it might happen. Spring fever had sprung early for me, and now here we are in winter wonderland, with snow coming down hard. I'm in the middle of planting 11 fruit trees, I already have 8 in the ground, with 3 more to go. Plus I have a huge bed of perennials dug, to transplant into another huge bed I created, so that my plants have more space to grow. I also still have some rhodies, grapes and various shrubs that need planting.
They're all covered in a beautiful blanket of snow right now... oh well, this gave me an opportunity to do something I've been wanting to do for the last few days... set up my blog, and record the goings on in my life for friends and family, and others interested in plants, trees, fruits, vegetables, and how to grow them in the Northwest. Along with some of my hobbies, collecting herbs, and spices, making sourdough, saurkraut, and pickles along with creating soup stocks and homemade pastas.
This is my first post, and it took a little while to figure this whole thing out, so I'll write more over the coming weeks, and plan to include some photos along with journal entries .
