I have no idea what's going on in the weather. We had a very mild and warm late winter/early spring, and then a straight month of rain and cool temperatures (April), and now we are essentially into summer weather. I'm perplexed: all of our blackberries (6 different varieties, 20+ plants) have set fruit.
And the elderberries are 8' tall (I cut the stalks to 12" every February), and ready to bloom.
And the spiderwort has grown so tall that it FELL OVER.....and then bloomed.
The herbs, especially the mints, are all growing out of control. It begs the question - what next?
I'm anticipating a hot, dry summer.
