raised beds & lil' asparagi
Last year I bought some asparagus... and now this little lone baby spear popped up. If that's the only one that grows, I can't imagine eating it... there will have to be some sort of sacrificial ceremony involved.
I like seeing who else is sprouting... or blooming.
The big news is:
This weekend I constructed my last two raised garden beds...
The wood is cedar. Contents include: soil, lime, peatmoss, "homemade" compost, etc. Still need to prep a little, start seedlings, and then it's on. I'm really hoping I can have some eggplant-related success.
I finally found a use for these old sun and moon metal pieces (hose guides on the corners)...
