We have all heard that wives tale about if march comes in like a lamb it will go out like a lion and vice versa. March started out beautiful here with wonderful 60 degree sunny days. Perfect for getting those early cool weather crops sown in the garden. And plant them I did. Then the lion roared. We got 7 inches of snow on March 11th. luckily for us very little was blooming other than a Nanking cherry or two and the small Cornelian Cherries. Time will tell the damage to fruit set but since both of those are very young trees the loss should be minimal. And the annual dance every gardener faces each spring with Mother Nature has begun. The gardener tries to produce as much as possible and Mother Nature keeps us humble by reminding us who is actually in control. Oh what arrogant humans we are and she does love to flex her muscles.
