Perhaps a new year’s bud burst is reason to get back to blogging progress on the block.  Today we noticed that the meyric trees are just about all showing bud burst on terminal shoots.  Some of the rex are beginning to burst.  The alders are beginning to leaf out and some of the prunus are in leaf.

This weekend has been largely preparing for the spring growth by mowing and herbicide spraying.

The bud burst seems early, but I need to check.  After two years of late high frosts it is hard not to be nervous.
