Spring is Sprung!
Even before we went to Texas, there were already a few teensy blossoms on the peach tree. Between the rain while we were gone and this week's warm weather, the peach tree is an explosion of pink-ness. Because of the cold, wet winter I am predicting another bumper crop this summer. So start gathering those peach recipes and send 'em on over. I plan to try my hand at preserves or jam or something besides crisps and cobblers.
On the other hand, I don't need any help deciding what to do with my lime crop. Between all the Mojitos and Thai food I make, I still end up having to buy some.
The orange and lemon trees have buds that are just starting to open. They smell so good when they do. And the avocado tree is looking good too. Just waiting for Squirrel/Raccoon/Opossum Armageddon to happen. Soon, I hope.
