Lots of things are coming up right now. I love when beans and legumes come up. The beans that we planted have split open and are growing what will eventually become the bush beans and limas. I love how the original bean tries to cling on for as long as possible.
One of the first things to break ground this year was our corn. It was a race against the squirrels and their voracious appetites and we won...this time.
And a little surprise was this tiny fellow.
Last year we tried to grow asparagus and we had these beautiful fern-like stalks that filled their little square. And that was about it. So in preparing the garden this year, I pulled the still beautiful fern-like growth out. I thought I got all the roots but gladly, I did not. I may have to pull out the silver to dine on this delicious little morsel. I think I'll designate a permanent location for asparagus now that I'm learning how it grows here.
