The last week of April became rainy, chilly and my spring seemed to disappear. On Wednesday afternoon I was out in the garden and saw the wild blackberries blooming, BLACKBERRY WINTER. Now I totally understand what is happening. I was no longer confused about building a fire in the wood stove as we do have fire every year during blackberry winter.
The late frost in April may have taken my wisteria tree. It was loaded with blooms and I had enjoyed it for 1 day. That night came with low temperatures and brown blooms. That was alright but now I do not see any vegetation on the tree. I have a great need for this plant as I grew up where there was a wisteria tree. This one I moved from my previous home to the farm. It will be like loosing part of our family if it doesn't survive.
The goats are getting fatter and the baby roosters are starting to make some noise. The farm is moving forward, Spring is an exciting time on the farm, in the garden there are changes almost daily. You do feel as if you have accomplished so much as you see the plants develop. The weather has been a challenge this spring and of course, the winter was strange. I question how this will effect our growing season. Well, as all of us know, only time will tell.
