Dilip's 2006 Garden Journal

Monday, March 17, 2008

It became a little colder today (in the 50s [°F]) today and my cherry tree looks just like it did yesterday with no new blooms. To the left, you can see the rapidly budding flowering almond; to the right, one of the early blooms of kerria japonica ("Japanese rose").

My wife pulled out more than a wheelbarrow-full of lovely, rich compost; I used about a quarter of it mixed with items like alfalfa meal, cottonseed meal, rock dust, rock phosphate, etc., and spread it around the cherry's drip line, as well as around the other fruits (blueberry, fig, and apple) except I ran out of this load before the stalk apple trees.
