Wednesday's Post....


 I have two tomato plants with blooms. It is too cold to put them in the garden. I snowed this morning for a half an hour. I think by next week I can get them into the ground.  It feels too cold to even wish to plant them. 


I can't over plant my city backyard but it is tempting to put these rooted pussy willow sticks into the ground. The forsythia in the other vase really are not rooting but if they did I would consider planting a bush somewhere. I did put more water into both vases after I took this photo.


I don[t think our freeze really happened but it was close to 32 degrees. I think the temps in town are a little warmer than out in the open. It did snow on me while I was driving to the hearing aid doctor this morning. 


I split and apple with my wife in the evening for a snack. I liked the looks of these Gala apples and picked them up yesterday. They are not as sweet as Delicious apples. As a point of information the Delicious apple was developed  near here at Winterset , Iowa.  They have the original tree still standing as a monument even though the tree is now dead. 

It is the middle of the week. We are stuck inside with it being cold but the sun is shining. Have a great day at your location.

Isn't this weather crazy ! Last week we were in the eighties, tonight we are under a hard freeze warning...
I covered all of my blooming bushes up last night, and again tonight, let's hope this is the last of it. Those Gala apples are delicious.
