Babies In The Garden.

Our apricot tree is starting to get a lot of blossoms open and showing their beauty. I always wish for no winds once the blossoms start to thicken up...... more fruit late December, early into the new year.

With this warm weather I do hope the winds stay away and our tree can enjoy the blossom showing.

Can you see the lettuce, just left of the black blob of soil?

The only seed of a red leaf variety that germinated and a lot is riding on this little seedling. I am going to have a shot at saving seeds from this plant. That way I will have more of this lovely loose red leaf variety.

I won't let any other varieties go to seed, so I get a pure strain.

My cold is gone at last and I am hoping for some quality time out the back tomorrow.

Until next time....hoo roo
