A Spring Day in the Garden

Spring is here, and my forsythia is blooming.  Today was beautiful with some wonderful 70+ degree weather.  I think I finally thawed out.  Maybe I can finally put my long johns away!  

Some of my fruit trees have started to bloom.  They are pretty young, so I haven't gotten a lot of fruit off of them yet. 

This year, my Santa Rosa plum is covered with blossoms!  This is the first year it has had any substantial blossoms.  I'm hoping for plums this year!

Peaches and nectarines are blooming as well. I'm hoping for a decent crop of Red Haven peaches this year. My other peach and nectarine are too young to yield much this year.

I have quite a bit of work to do this year - I never did get all my fall clean-up completed.

Today, we planted another peach tree and 6 merlot grape vines. We have another pluot tree to plant.  We may get anther peach tree to plant (not sure yet).

I'm a little behind on my spring veggie planting.  I've planted a few potatoes and Walla-Wall onions.  I really need to get peas, lettuce, carrots, beets, turnips and any other random cool season crops planted.  Maybe tomorrow!
