Spring is definitely here in my area.

Almaden Duke cherry tree.  I moved it last summer from my old place to the new place.  Given the move, would have been happy if it just lived, let alone bloomed.  Not sure there will be enough for a pie but maybe....

Multigraft sweet cherry in back yard.

Muscari.  No maintenance.  They multiply and bloom on their own.

And I thought I was joking, Amer! Nature (and culture) always have a surprise for me!

Amer, your variegated Stenocactus (Echinofossulocactus) is so pretty.

Chris, cultivators had developed a lot of verities of echinocereus pectinatus. It depends upon verity of the plant. Many of them have purple right from the beginning. My plant is four years old. It started producing purple in the third year.

What a beautiful rainbow, Amer! How long before blue and purple come up?

I made a dish with turnip greens yesterday. Fried some left-over potatoes with onion and garlic, threw in the turnip greens with a handful of grated cheese. Tastes very good, is easy, cheap and healthy.

I've been enjoying all of the wonderful photos and advice as of late.  It is so wonderful to have such a wealth of knowledge and experience available!

Joan-  I'm thinking of you and hope this next month is as uneventful as it can possibly be for you.  Your attitude is admirable!

It is good to see Sentient on here every now and then.  Wishing you some restful days of admiring all of your hard work, and a speedy recovery.

So far, I have harvested about 1.5 lbs of French breakfast radishes!  I asked a friend if I could eat the radish greens and he said he does.  I decided to saute them as I would collard greens... with onions, garlic and a little bit of bacon.  They are delicious!  It makes me wonder what other greens we normally throw into the compost could also be eaten.  Have any of you tried any other tops?
