It's Over Until Next Spring!

Ed weeded and top dressed the asparagus bed. We won't be cutting it again this year. Time for the plants to grow into their feathery ferns, and feed the roots. We have reveled in the fresh asparagus. Cut and washed just minutes before it is cooked, asparagus is a whole new taste experience. Next spring we will welcome it's return.

We have been getting rain and the garden is responding with lush growth. We are in the salad days now and await the peas and strawberries with anticipation. Our garden is starting to pay those big dividends. It will be arugula and nectarine salad for lunch.

How wonderful to have fresh asparagus right out of the garden!
