Farm Journal- May
The month of May,
the merry month of May,
so frolic, so gay,
and so green, so green, so green...
from The Merry Month of May,
by Thomas Dekker, 1600.
We are pruning away here at the farm. Suddenly everything is bursting into bud and leaf, we can barely keep up, especially since we can't prune in the rain.
The end of April brought the first signs of Winter Moth larvae on the Cape- they appear with the forsythia- we hope to stay a step ahead of them, as well as those nasty (though pretty) weeds!
