All you folks where spring is springing!!
I harvested my first crops of cherry tomatoes this week and have peppers and eggplants starting to form. Carrots are still going like gangbusters.
Today I'll be out on the side of the house where I grow my deciduous fruit trees. The fruit is starting to color on some of the early peaches and apricots and I've caught the birds sitting on the fence casually taking a peck out of each fruit on that side! Now I don't mind sharing - I just ask that the birds pick a fruit and stick to it instead of ruining dozens of them! I'm armed with paper bags and a stapler to cover unpecked fruit. This could be a big job. And yes - I'll still leave more for the happy birds!
I will need you guys in cooler climes to keep me motivated this summer when everything her in Phoenix withers under our hot, dry conditions. We've already had a few 100 degree days.
Enjoy playing outside everyone!
