As we gear up to do a major yard clean-up — mulching, tree pruning, garden planting — the birds are busy and the fruit trees are beginning to flower out. The keyhole is (finally) packed full of Romaine and Butter crunch Lettuce seedlings which will be full edible heads in only a few more weeks. I’m just hoping that it stays cool enough long enough that they don’t bolt to flower stalks first. I’ve not have much luck with lettuces in the past.
Would you believe that we are still picking and eating jalapeño peppers from last spring’s garden?
Going out birding in the unseasonably mild weather in the Houston area leads me to one conclusion: the birds must know something we don’t. I just hope that the El Nino mild winter doesn’t bring behind it a scorching summer.
