Somehow, I got distracted and decided that putting the borders around the fruit trees would be a good idea. So the two apples and the pear now have scalloped concrete edging, with the partly composted rice hull mulch, and nice little brick centers to keep the mulch away from the tree trunks. The espalier apple and the new pear both have flower buds, and, amazingly, so does the Akane, (which is basically only a single stick trunk about 2 ft high). I cut up another dead-bike inner tube and used it to attach the pear to its tree stakes, and did the same for bitsy Akane.
This weekend I found some garden seeds that I'd stashed away last year, peas and chard and kale; hopefully they will still be viable. I really want to grow greens this year. I've got a dozen seed potatoes chitting on the windowsill, and if it ever gets a bit warmer, I'll be planting them. Maybe this year I'll grow my own colcannon!
