This last week most of the Willcox Bench, us included had bud break, signaling the beginning of the 2022 season. Now we all sit patiently hoping the weather stays nice. It is always a little stressful in the month of April because we could have a late frost damaging all the tender new growth. Fingers crossed we will all have a bountiful year. The lavender is waking up as well and starting to get green. The olives are also starting to show signs of growth with the warm weather. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some olive oil this year. If you have been following the pomegranate trial, the majority of the plants have got green leaves. We might have lost a few, but then again they might just be a little lazy. Time will tell. We look forward to the coming season and hope to see you and share the beauty.
