Default New finds

While out shopping today we ran across another dewberry bed, this one
just down the main drag from our home and next to a Jack In the Box.
Have found six may haw trees on public land so far and we now have at
least seven dewberry beds land marked. Hopefully they won't get sprayed
or mowed before they ripen. The dewberries are in full bloom and the may
haw trees have blooms dropping so fruit must be setting.

I'm hoping to get a mess of each this year. Does that make me an Urban
Harvester, been reading about those.

Still frustrated with setting up appointments with new medical
specialists, a must do at our age and frailty but a real PITA.

Garden shed is finished and, as soon as this north wind quits blowing,
we will build the raised bed garden. The fig tree is leafing out nicely
and the blueberry plants are covered with blooms. The vegetable garden
seeds we started in newspaper pots are breaking the soil. There is hope
in this old house.
