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.

You must be magic. NOTHING grows wild around here.

Met my new dentist today; I think he's about 17, wanted so badly to call
him "Skippy". This is a very old group practice and three of the
dentists (in their 70s.)have retired or announced potential retirement
this year. I told "Skippy" that dentists and gynecologists are the
hardest to replace. ;-)

Magic, just magic. Wishing you a very successful growing and canning year.

i know spring is on the way here when i start
watering the amarylis plants again and they
poke up out of the pots.

alas, we are still in the overnight freezing
stage of things and plenty of wind today. gusting
up to 30+mph. and a bit of that fuzzy white frozen
water stuff.
