Hope your tooth is better Plinius.

It sounds like you get quite a bit out of your small garden.  I don't think I've eaten a tayberry, but it sounds delicious.

Sorry I didn't answer, Spud! I've on antibiotics for a tooth problem, and the medicine made me completely brainless...

My garden looks rather good - not that I could spend a lot of time on it - but the perennial plants grow like mad. Some are thinking of invading the neighbours. I'm looking forward to the tayberry harvest, and in the meantime I sowed and planted beets, chards, lettuce, tomatoes and flowers for the salad. I already harvested rosemary and mint and I think I found some leeks. The cats harvest only grass...

Heard on NPR today that 28% of American honeybees died off this past winter. 17% or less is what's considered by scientists to be sustainable.

Thanks Plinius.  It looks like I should get plenty of fruit for the size of the tree.  It's still small, but loaded with fruit.  Even after thinning, I should get a nice bunch of apricots.

How are you doing?

Daniel, how do you cook okra?  I've only tried it once or twice, and wasn't impressed, but I just may not know how to cook it.

Thanks Daniel.  I do thin my fruit trees so I get bigger and tastier fruit.  However, climbing the ladder into my tall pear tree is not fun, so I just periodically shake the tree to shake loose some of the fruit.  Do you think that's a bad way to thin them?

Joan, I've finally gotten outside and started pulling weeds the last 3 days.  I'm late because I started doing electrical and electronic work in the house the last few months, and continued into spring.

I still go to the library to access the internet, but it's such a pain that I will probably get the courage in the next few weeks to call several Internet Service Providers and try one again.

Spud, it is so good to read your posts. I hope you are well and happy and enjoying the sunshine and garden.

It's a beauty, Spud, I hope you'll have plenty of fruit!

I was happy to see my apricot tree, that I planted last year, full of flowers a month ago, and lots of little apricots on it now:
