Nature is doing its thing

The blackberries are flowering in abundance. Spring has sprung with a vengeance. The number of honeybees is markedly higher than last year (not official, just my own perception).

I expect a GREAT blackberry harvest this year. Lots and lots of canning will happen. The girls and I are gonna go blackberry hunting several times so we can can tons of them for winter pies. Mmmmm.

Also, the grass in my yard/meadow/orchard is taller than can easily be walked through. Taller than most fences, at least three or four feet - you can see from the picture of the chicken coop from the previous post. And this is in spite of all having been mowed with farming machinery (a Kaboda technically) just a few weeks ago.
