Summer is finally here in Northern Nevada. Since we had an unusual amount of rain early in the season, things have been blooming like crazy. There are blossoms all over my fruit trees (apple, pear, plum). Unfortunately, the blossoms all over my pear tree smell like dead fish for some reason. Fortunately, those blossoms are finally beginning to fall off.
In addition to all the blossoms, we've got weeds, weeds, weeds. And not only the usual bindweed and mini-baby tumbleweeds in the making (more on that later) - we've got dandelions all over. I've been pulling and digging and pulling! Since we have that hardpan soil (hard dry clay with rocks - lovely!), those babies just break off at the roots! Grrrr.
