    Default New finds

    While out shopping today we ran across another dewberry bed, this one
    just down the main drag from our home and next to a Jack In the Box.
    Have found six may haw trees on public land so far and we now have at
    least seven dewberry beds land marked. Hopefully they won't get sprayed
    or mowed before they ripen. The dewberries are in full bloom and the may
    haw trees have blooms dropping so fruit must be setting.

    I'm hoping to get a mess of each this year. Does that make me an Urban
    Harvester, been reading about those.

    Still frustrated with setting up appointments with new medical
    specialists, a must do at our age and frailty but a real PITA.

    Garden shed is finished and, as soon as this north wind quits blowing,
    we will build the raised bed garden. The fig tree is leafing out nicely
    and the blueberry plants are covered with blooms. The vegetable garden
    seeds we started in newspaper pots are breaking the soil. There is hope
    in this old house.

    You must be magic. NOTHING grows wild around here.

    Met my new dentist today; I think he's about 17, wanted so badly to call
    him "Skippy". This is a very old group practice and three of the
    dentists (in their 70s.)have retired or announced potential retirement
    this year. I told "Skippy" that dentists and gynecologists are the
    hardest to replace. ;-)

    i know spring is on the way here when i start
    watering the amarylis plants again and they
    poke up out of the pots.

    alas, we are still in the overnight freezing
    stage of things and plenty of wind today. gusting
    up to 30+mph. and a bit of that fuzzy white frozen
    water stuff.
