As far as blossom watch is concerned; I had expected to find the trees in full flower. They are not there yet but it can't take very long. The honey berry is the only one in full flower, much to the satisfaction of a horde of fat and hungry bumblebees. I am glad to see the newly purchased prune tree is starting to bud. The cherry tree is so full of blossom buds that it is almost unbelievable, especially since it gave us one whole cherry last year.
The rest is growing along nicely. The lettuces can almost be replanted into a straight line, the onions are showing above the ground and the radishes are forming quite quickly. There is something munching on the cauliflower but not to an extend that I am horribly worried. The garlic is growing quite large. It probably won't make huge bulbs seeing as it was put into the ground in the spring but it is worth a try. The strawberries that we discovered when turning over the soil don't seem to have suffered from their temporary topsy turfy existence and are growing into large patches.
I also tried to bring back the edges of the plot a bit, since the grass was slowly invading the plot. While trying to dig over clumps of turf I encountered many a fat earthworm, telling me that the soil is quite a happy one.
