Crossvine Surprise on the Big PVC Arbor
You can definitely tell it is spring here in Middle Tennessee. The plants have gone wild and crazy!
I went out of town for a week and look at what I came back too. The crossvine, lilacs, and many more plants have simply exploded. That'll teach me to leave town during spring! It seems more like May than April here.
Do you suppose it is an April Fool's joke that summer has started-temperature wise? The ten day forecast says temperatures should stay above freezing so that is a relief. If you plan to plant warm season crops now might be a good time. I've gotten mine in already and feel like I am ahead of the season but who knows what will come our way next. Strawberries in the vegetable garden are already berried up and everything is just busting out all over. More information on the vegetable garden in a later post....

One more thing, the weeds are very bad this year, perhaps every year, but this year with the early start to the season it seems they are much worse. Don't despair, just do a little at a time but be consistent and you'll get the job done. Enjoy this great weather!
