We have had lots of good rain this past week and weekend. Spring is usually a wet time of the year. All the rain now gives us a head start when we get into the hot dry months of the summer. The crabapple and dogwood trees are starting to bloom. April is fast approaching, and that means blackberry winter and the start of summer planting. You might not know about blackberry winter but, it is usually in the first part of April and it is when the blackberry bushes start to bloom.
This week I will go to Wilsonville to get chicken feed, adjust the chicken tractors, cut wild watercress, and host a Girl Scout Troop who will be learning about foraging. I hope to get in some more spring planting very soon!
I hope everyone has a great week and don't forget about the next foraging class coming up in April!
