When everything is new

I’ve been trying to take progress pictures from the same angle and against that narrow line on the basket where the wood end sticks out like a belt loop between the apricot seedlings. The taller one is now 3 3/4″.

Not bad for something planted January 11; last year it took till April just for them to sprout. Which is why I’m so taken with the plugs infused with rooting hormone that I tried this year–I’m getting a two month head start on my future fruit bearing while hoping that ends up cutting off a year of waiting to see how they’ll turn out.

Meantime, Lillian wanted to know what happened to that white snow stuff and where did this water come from.

The snow-to-water thing makes me think of the Calvin and Hobbes strip where Calvin shows Hobbes how you put bread in the toaster, and toast comes out! “What happens to the bread?”

Love to see that rapid growth. Like kids in a growth spurt, soon they’ll need bigger clothes.

I just love seeing how your growing season is under way. We woke up to another 3” of snow this morning. Le sigh.
At least we are more prepared for it than our neighbours to the south.
