April 6

Looking SW, up slope.

Last year at this time everything was green and growing including my pepper and tomato plants. Then The Great Easter Freeze blackened everything. This year things are a bit delayed. I planted my first tomato and pepper plants and many others. I planted out several spring greens patches and rows of Oregon Giant Snowpeas along with my first patch of Cherokee popcorn.

There are some little downy woodpeckers that feed at my finch feeder and big pileated woodpeckers the seem to become less shy of me each year. The wild plums are flowering with a wonderful fragrance. They fruit reliably even when horticultural Prunus crops fail as they did last year.
