Spring is beginning to show its face here in Washoe Valley. Way too many fruit blossoms are ready to burst forth. It has been such an unseasonably warm season that everything is early, and we know we are undoubtedly going to have another hard freeze that’s going wipe everything out. Daffodils are blooming, tulips (the ones the deer didn’t eat) and hyacinth are all up and some have buds already. In the vegetable garden, rhubarb, chives and parsley are up but still small.
