Gardening Season

Late yesterday I went out to the garden and to my suprise, I found that the asparagus was starting to come up. Unfortunately the dead foliage from last year was covering it plus the unseasonable heatwave had generated a lot of weeds that don't usually appear until May. So I spent Sunday afternoon clearing the asparagus bed, plus the rhubarb (which is also looking promising) and found that the tarragon, mint, oregano and garlic chives were also poking sprouts out of the ground. Of course, the garlic that I planted in the fall is also poking up. I went to Waterloo Gardens and bought arugula, dill, lettuce which I will get in the ground next weekend and edamame, which I will have to wait until May when danger of frost is past.

  1. jealous! at the farmer's market yesterday one of the stall had "first bunches of asparagus"- at £3.50 a bunch!

    I did get some rhubarb and fresh mint though...
