No garden this year; too much work for me! My son wants one; but if he does; he has to do it on his own! 😒 260899831.jpg

Well, if you want to get a harvest, you need to make an effort. If you do not have the time and desire to do this, then there is even no point in starting to do it.
I had a garden since I can remember! Always had tomatoes; lots of them; blanched, bagged, and froze them! Had tomatoes all year round! :D I love gardens! when I was a kid my dad had a huge garden! When I got married; I had to have a garden! Not much space but we made it work! :wink:

You're excused, Orin. Do tell your son that he should plant your garden and tend it for you!

By the way, I loved your pictures! :D πŸ…πŸ₯’πŸŒ½πŸ₯•

The garden belongs to my son now, but so far the weather isn't cooperating! It,s so cold and wet! It is supposed to snow today! :cry: I think all he wants is a few tomatoes and peppers!

Sorry to hear that, Orin. πŸ˜₯

Cherry tree by the pond April 2021.jpg

The picture shows the cherry tree by the pond near our largest library. The tree is in bloom now, and some willow trees in the background are all green.

It's been warm-ish here for a few days, but the wind has been kind of cold. Today was nice, however, in spite of the wind, and the temperature climbed to 18 ℃. I guess that's the high 60s Fahrenheit.

The weather here has been dry, and we've really had far too little rain. But on Wednesday the weather is going to change, temperatures will plummet to, I guess, the low 40s Fahrenheit, and it will rain. The rain is not so bad, all things considered.

Yes, but on Wednesday I'm going to get my first shot of Covid vaccine, and I'll have to dress kind of lightly, so that the nurse can quickly "find the bare skin of my arm"! And I will have to stand in line outside, in the wind and the rain and the cold weather, waiting to get in to get my shot!

I feel cold already thinking about it!

You should dress warm anyway! You can always take a coat off quickly for the shot! It was cold when we got ours! Good luck!

Well, the weather was all right for vaccinations. It wasn't too cold or windy, and we got no rain. Lucky for me. Bad for this dry region.
