|First salmonberry of the year|
It has been a year without winter here on Kodiak. The lakes never froze and the garden never died. The kale pictured below is from last year's garden, and I am a little curious about what will happen to it come June - will it immediately bolt or will it grow large leaves as if it was a newly planted kale?
I do know that slugs are already munching on my garlic. The slugs will be a HUGE issue for gardeners this summer. I wonder what other garden pests we'll have to start dealing with here on Kodiak if the winters continue to be so mild?
