Finally, with a few warm days, there’s actual life in the garden – a few things appear to be growing. This year it seems like everything has gotten off to a very slow start. Maybe it’s always that way. Maybe I expect too much too quickly.
The onions I planted a couple of weeks ago are doing well.
The onions and garlic that were planted in the fall are taking off and growing well.
In this area are cabbage, broccoli, beets, purple lettuce, carrots and one more thing that I can’t remember . . oh . . spinach!
The asparagus beds are doing great. We’ve had asparagus a couple of times. Those first few asparagus dishes are wonderful. We both sit, and eat, and talk about how great home grown asparagus is . . cut it and eat it on the same day. In a few weeks, Vince will be saying “Asparagus AGAIN?”
Last year I didn’t get enough to can . . really it was just enough to eat every day but by the end of asparagus season, I was pretty glad to see it go. I’m hoping this year we’ll get enough to can and maybe we won’t have to eat asparagus every single day for the next six to eight weeks.
Maybe soon we’ll even have home grown mushrooms to eat!
