Oh my DeepWoods! Can your friends & family even recognize you? I had a very productive day in the garden, finally! We've had house guests for the past several days & prior to that my husband was in the hospital for a week (he is fine, scheduled surgery). So between visiting my husband at the hospital & then entertaining relatives I was rushed off my feet. The vegie garden got a bit ahead of me, but things are coming up nicely: peas, lettuce, bok choi, arugula, strawberries, ASPARAGUS!!!, potatoes, leeks, Swiss chard, ksle, etc. We've had 8 dinners of asparagus. This afternoon I also had some time to weed the garden at home & get my herbs in pots on the back stoop. Want to see what I've found so far this year in the home garden? Our son spent hours as a boy playing with his friends with various plastic critters...hours upon hours. Every summer I find another 3 or more in the garden beds. Brings back happy memories for me. Here are some more shots of the home garden. A lot is coming into bloom, but you can also tell that I need to do loads more weeding & thinning out.
