Pre-Spring Gardening

Daylight Saving Time starts on the 12th of March.
The Northern Hemisphere marks the spring equinox on Monday, March 20, 2017.

Southwest Oklahoma has been experiencing spring like weather for the past 2 weeks and my weather man indicates we can expect much more of the same spring like weather.
My miniature apple tree will soon be leafed out and and I hope to see a few blooms in it this year. It was planted in a large porch pot for two years but now resides in an area in the garden I have set aside for fruit trees and a few grape vines.
Flowering pears, wild plumbs and many ornamental flowering plants have started putting on their flowering splash of color show.

Three weeks past I pruned my seedless concord grape vines. I saved 5 cutting in an attempt to root at least one cutting to replace a vine I lost to the rabbits chewing it off to ground level during the 2015/2016 winter season.

In an attempt to root these cutting I put then in a small container of water and set them in a north facing window. I now have a few buds leafing out but no roots as of today. So in an attempt to jump starting root development I add 2 table spoons of liquid root stimulator to the water.

Grin… I must have had a ‘hatch’ off of rabbits. As of late I have collected four nice cotton tails that dressed out at about 1-1/2 pounds each. Today will be rabbit stew day.
