My first real lawn mowing today – most of the lawn, anyway.
I plant monkey flower and culver’s root, six plants each.
The sun sets small green leaves aflame – I can feel
their energy. Peas, spinach, beets and chard have all sprouted,
as have 4 tiny asparagus plants – in their second year.
We have two bigger asparagus plants, finally big enough to eat.
Jenny broke off the two largest spears and we ate them on the spot –
crisp, sweet and juicy. Fantastic. I can’t wait for more.
