Spring Marches On


The cherry buds are filling out. Another week or so and the sky will be ablaze with cherry blossoms. The forecast is for a week of sunshine, something the cherry blossom buds will enjoy.


Cabbage sprouts look like baby four leaf clovers. These are Early Jersey Wakefield cabbage, a cone shaped cabbage. With luck, I’ll have these at the farmers market all summer.


The tall cottonwoods on the other side of the pond reach more than a hundred feet into the sky. From the tops of their branches they can see Mt. Baker to the east and the Olympics to the southwest. Soon their bare branches will be hidden by thick, fragrant, waxy, green leaves. Green on the top, silver on the bottom. In the summer when a stiff wind blows off the sea, the trees shimmer a ghostly silver.
