When spring really starts showing itself, I have this feeling in my heart . . . I can't believe it came! The miracle of everything seemingly coming back to life fills me with surprise. It's almost like deep in my gut I thought winter might overtake us permanently. Do any of you have this feeling when spring comes around?
Here are the joys of coming spring around my garden . . .
One of the most exciting: My Asparagus! The crowns are actually thriving under the dirt and are starting to send up shoots. Can you believe it?!
Awwwww . . . so cute!
There's another one!
Here is my rhubarb ready to burst open!
Look! It's a rhubarb leaf! I can already taste the tart stalks!
Anyone have great rhubarb recipes?
I'm planning pies galore, jam and conserve.
Just look at my happy garlic!
I hope all is well under that mulch.
My Siberian Kale made it through the winter (no wonder, Siberian)
So, do I just eat this and forget about new plantings?
Does kale really do well as a . . . perennial?
It's looking good though, isn't it?
All of these leaves are new growth. Amazing.
Inside the cold frames.
I've been a little slack about opening and closing my frames with so many other things going on.
It's gotten a little toasty in there recently and some of the plants are starting to bolt. I am considering removing the frames this weekend. Hmmmmm?
What I really need to do is thin them out, and have a greens fiesta! Look at the bok choy! So much to do!
