Reverence for Tradition
We are back to our lush green woods now, here in West Virginia. We have had so much rain but I am not complaining, it should be a great hay year. The potatoes, onions, lettuce, cabbage, fennel and kale are all in and thriving. The tomatoes are 2 feet tall in the greenhouse but they will go out on Memorial Day weekend. I will have to plant them deep because they got so tall this year. I saw our first lightening bugs a couple nights ago. The iris and rhododendrons are in full bloom. The wrens are nesting in their box and the mockingbird is singing ALL night long now, so he must have a nest close by. With him singing and the toads whirring and the frogs croaking, our nights are not very quiet! The bluebirds are building in their box by the garden. A box turtle stopped by for a visit the other day. The bees have swarmed twice now. Our baby chicks now look like small chickens and the kittens are starting to play with each other. The raspberries and blackberries are all budded and should be bloomimg soon. Can't you just taste that blackberry cobbler with homemade goat milk ice cream? I sure can! I hope you are loving spring in your neck of the woods, I know I am.
