It’s time to start watering, deep and slow. Everything is growing in spite of the deep mulch!!
So no choice, have to start watering. Best to water with a drip system that can deliver a slow deep watering. For the next two or three weeks, watch the weather, and if overnight frosts are predicted, protect your newly planted berries, grapes, and trees. My established grapes already have tiny bunches of grapes, the newly planted ones haven’t woke up yet, and I’m hoping they will wait a couple of weeks to avoid any late frosts.
I have cherries too. This variety,
Dwarf Cherry Carmine Jewel
is one I planted a few years back and was unhappy because it is not grafted and was putting out runners and new plants as much as 10 feet away. Well, it had blossoms a month after the nanking cherries, and is just loaded with young cherries. So this year I’ll be digging up runner plants and offering them for sale.
My Amethyst Falls American Wisteria is going to bloom,
and the blue delphinium has several stalks with young buds.
The Victoria Sage is already blooming!!
Wow, I think it’s summer!!
