@Jujube, how is everything doing THIS year ?
At our ranchiito we do NOT keep bees.
They and other critters grace us with their presence, and we provide for their need to the best of our abilities.

Good for you, texaskitty! Tomatillos blooming! I've never been able to get mine to bloom until fall.

Everything is coming along slowly here this year with the extra long, cold winter we had. English peas are blooming. The wild blackberries are blooming now (about three weeks later than usual), and there's a ton of blooms, full of honeybees. That's a nice sight.

I sowed the tomatillos indoors in Dec. as things previously grew so slow. Hard to say if the extra month helped, or the improved soil. How close to Murchison do you live?

Oh, those look great! Thumbs up I had never heard of Murchison so had to look it up... that's Henderson County which is not really too far south of us, I'm north of you in Hopkins County.

But I have to say I can go ten miles from home and be in another climate/zone. I do see ground cherries growing in the spring so I'm not sure why I can't grow tomatillos. But, you've given me incentive

That's true about climate changes. We have long ago decided we live in a microclimate. It can rain across the street, and not here. Ive heard dave say the same thing about his place in a podcast. Tomatoes froze 10 miles SW of us a few weeks ago. Texas is weird.

Hilarious! Weird and wonderful!

Everything has exploded in just the last week, so I really can't complain.

Of the early bloomers, so far I see fruit on the:
Peach trees
Plum trees
Flowering quince

Which is nice because last year we got hit with a late freeze three nights in a row causing zero fruit for us!!
