Our snow banks are gradually lessening. I don't realize there has been any change until I notice something that was previously hidden. I have ordered some high bush cranberries to plant this year. There is an area group which supports and promotes local plants and I am in full agreement with that. They grow better, need less maintenance and don't introduce something that will have an adverse affect on anything else.
We have, what I believe, will be the perfect environment for the cranberries. We have a wood area that is swampy; in fact a wetland so they should do well. How nice to have our own cranberries for chutney and to eat with our own chickens and turkeys.
I also got a dogwood tree as the bark looks so nice in the winter.
I have almost finished the quilt I was making from a kit. I just need to add the borders which consist of 2 1/2" squares of the fabric that was used in the blocks. I am glad I made this quilt as the look is quite different from anything else I've done. Should have a photo to post tomorrow.
