Mid Spring

today, molly and I spied the first flower on the pea vines. they hide there buds well, so the little flower is often a true, albeit long-awaited surprise. on the mulberry trees, the teeny fruits are starting to swell. Everything is waiting for a little rain to blow this spring wide-open. We've had a bit of a dry spell lately. the plants get nursed along during these spells, but really pop when mother nature showers down with the real stuff.
In the high tunnel, cauli and broccoli are starting to make tiny buds and tomatoes are putting forth flowers. Everything else is growing like mad; the spinach is very nearly too mad in there and is trying its damnedest to make seeds.
