We all have THAT storm we remember. Weather events can be a milestone of sorts from our past. The big snowfall in February 1971, right before my 16th birthday is one for me. It was the one that shut the town down for a couple of days. Another one I remember is the hot summer of 1980 with its 46 days of 100+ degrees.
At first, the word fungi doesn’t sound all that great. There are a few fungi on our lawn and landscape plants that can damage the appearance of, or even worse, produce toxins that affect plants and animals. For the most part though, fungi are important decomposers in most ecosystems. Mycorrhizal fungi are essential for the growth of most plants.
Per·en·ni·al from Latin perennis ‘lasting the year through’ (of a plant) living for several years.
The recent rainfall has been such a blessing. The bedding plants in both containers and in our flowerbeds are rapidly growing and blooming. Everything in the vegetable garden is getting established for fruit production this summer. I can hardly wait for a summer BLT with a slice of home grown tomato on it. We are enjoying all of the spring vegetables from the garden daily.
