Signs of Spring

Above, little buds of love on my blueberry bush. Below, leaves emerging from the blackberry canes.

I planted both of these last summer. The blackberries are in the ground because - basically - they're invasive snarling hyenas of the plant world. The blueberries (2 of them, different varieties) are in a raised bed because the soil here is basic while blueberries love acid. In a raised bed I can add soil amendments more easily.

Stay tuned. Today I planted seeds! Outside!

Looks great! We'll definitely need big panoramas this year. Read The Big Orange Splot again tonight and thought of you. x.
