Inspired by the Warmth and Sun...
Sunday was easily 60 Degrees! The sun was shining and the melting snow showed bright green patches of hope!!!
When we purchased this house over 16 years ago, I had so many plans the 60 different varieties of trees, multiple fruit trees, asparagus patch, raspberry patch, gooseberry patch, kiwi vines,fig trees , filled me with so many projects and hopes.
But life just gets in the way....
But now, I am on a roll, first the raspberry patch then who knows. This is actually a very long patch of Everbearing Raspberries and Thornless Blackberries woven in between with multiple varities of Daffodils. Peach Trees secure each end and an asparagus patch and Concord Grapevines outline the back side.
Currently scrub trees have taken over my patches...but we are on a mission. It looks like the weather will cooperate, I have the best workers food can buy, and the dreams of fresh fruit all summer long.
Results to be posted next week! Wish us luck.
