Daffodils around my Fuyu trees I put in last fall. I hope they all four made it!Daffodils in moles tunnels around in the yard as well.
same bed, the bed to the right o the walking path is my asparagus
Starting to see them popping up! These never made it to the house. Snacks while I walked
Fruit orchard in bloom. Only two of my plums were caught in those hard freezes with snow and ice. Those two always bloom out super early. I have high hopes for some fruit this year. Knocking on wood.
The whole saffron bed. I am going to put a 2 foot chicken wire fence around the raised bed. The rabbits have eaten on these all winter. Had I not put the wire on top of it I am sure they would have dug up the bulbs and the squirrels. I am sure its not good for them but they have tolerated the nibbling. But I want to keep the rabbits off them. I am going to put the black plastic netting that I have laying on them as well now on top of the chicken wire fence. That will keep the squirrels out of it it I think. I would like to not have anything laying directly on the bed itself. I think every single bulb I planted sprout up! I am excited to see what I get off this bed come this October! We have have had a incredible amount of rain this winter. Then some ice and snow too. Great because we so needed it here to fill the lakes etc. But since saffron can rot easily if kept to wet I worried a bit. I think the raised bed is for sure the way to go. I used a good loose mix of dirt, compost, sand so it drained really well. It was never standing in water. So far so good!
