The blackberries are blooming too. In no time I'll be having blackberry pancakes, smoothies, and pie. I also noticed that what I had been thinking was a mulberry tree the past few years is indeed a mulberry tree! It has berries on it this year. It is in the edge of the woods so I may have to trim a few trees so it gets more sun. It isn't where I would have planted it but a bird saw fit to drop a berry there and it seems to like the location. The birds helped me get the blackberries planted in the fence rows with my grape vines too. I like birds!
Here is one thing that kept me away from my stamps this week, I planted my garden! I planted 4 rows of corn. The other 4 rows are combinations of snow peas, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash and beets. I always get excited when I'm planning and planting my garden but then the weeds start growing . . .
It is a bit hard to tell from the picture that there is anything there but dirt. I know that there are lots of wild onions and Johnson grass roots there besides the seeds I planted! I was hoping for rain after I finished planting but I didn't want the total downpour we got! I hope the seeds are still in the ground. It was way too muddy to walk down the rows and look for stray seeds. I reckon by Monday afternoon I can get a closer look. We will expect good things, right?
