It has been so rewarding this spring to see these plants come alive. I was beyond excited when the asparagus started popping up, and we keep giggling at the leaves on the fruit trees and raspberries and the dark green leaves of the strawberry plants. Right now our favorite end of the day activity is to walk the yard, comment on the days growth, plan what's going into the soil next, and where we might dig up soon. Of course it's not all perfect. There is a LOT of the weed horsetail growing everywhere, and the grass in our yard looks awful.
This week we've planted lettuce, cabbage, onions, and carrots and have nourished out leeks, tomatoes, and ground cherries inside. The herb garden is filling in, the chives are growing faster then Finley can eat them, and the fresh parsley with our clams over pasta dinner tonight tasted like spring. Another load of soil is being dropped off, so that I can finish laying out the garden around the beehive by the bees arrival on Friday. Even the wild apple tree we cleared around is putting forth a show of white blossoms. We are clearly putting down roots in this home.
What's growing at your home?
