Thumbs up Thumbs up Today I became the proud mommy of my first sprouts of the season. I so happy. My feet is doing the snoopy dance all over the place. Got me some hot peppers up. Oh ya.

Pouring rain here and temps are steadily dropping as we get ready to hit the high teens again tonight. Brrrrrrrrr.

I am actually beginning to wonder if my trees will have any leaves this year. I know nut production is going to be very minimal if at all. When we had that first warm couple of days back several weeks ago I watched the buds open and the new leaves emerge all over the place. Than the arctic blast came and all those newly emerged leaves froze and died.

I have since been looking at the trees constantly. Broken branches from the ice and snow and cold. Than the past couple of days we had a warm up again and a few new buds emerged and they too have been slowly unfurling their leaves and now with the new polar plunge those new leaves too are going to be killed off.

What is sad too is so many of the Red Bud and Cherry trees are all in bloom and the wet ice tonight will de-flower them too.

I have a feeling it is not only veggies that are going to be high priced this year but also fruits and nuts too.
