Garden Report

The warm weather has everything popping out ahead of it's time.

The apple tree is in full bloom.
The apricot is forming fruit. (It already has it's first coating of Surround, an organic pest deterrant)
The blueberries are flowering.
The strawberries are starting to form fruit.

And the asparagus is coming up. It always looks a little prehistoric (and a bit phallic) to me.
I love this time of year. Everything is pretty and tidy. The vegetables are all small and fit in their rows. None of the weeds have invaded yet. None of the plants have overgrown their allotted space. By August it will all be a jungle. But right now I can believe that this year's plan will work out just fine.
