We avoided the frost and now the plum tree is
covered with pretty little babies!
If I can keep the worms under control we may
just have a great harvest this year.
The mystery tree out back, a complete volunteer,
I believe is another peach tree.
It looks very much like the tree out front.
The horseradish is looking good and such pretty flowers.
I can't complain about the worms either, huge!
We now have almost all the panels up on the side
garden where there is kale, collards, swiss chard,
cabbage and radish and a few varieties of lettuce.
The new meat chicks arrive tomorrow
and the bees on Saturday. My husband found
a neighbor that will ride up to Des Moines and back
with him - 12 hours in the car in one day!
I'm sure they will have fun.
I'll be here watching the new babies, catching up on
my quilting and looking at the library books that I
will surely have by then. Library sales are always good.
I had a surprise this week too.
Our old office complex used to hire a landscaping
company to plant the flowers of the season.
Once that season was coming to a close, they
would pull them up and leave them on the street for
anyone to take. At one time I had lots of tulips.
That was maybe 10 years ago and since that time
they have disappeared.
Until this week.
LOOK!! A lone tulip!
That must be a good sign.
