Monday, Monday...

Spring has sprung,
The grass has riz.
I wonder where
The flowers is?

No idea who wrote that one, but Dad recites it pretty often. Spring is just now arriving to our part of the world. It looks like the early blooming fruit trees have survived our recent snow and cold temps, and we're starting to see a few signs of life here and there.

In our neck of the, er, Prairie, planting anything before May 31 is risky. I have a few peas out, some green onions, a little lettuce and a few other odds and ends. They are slow to get going - the soil just isn't quite warm enough yet - but maybe they'll give us a few early garden treats. I re-planted some small red onions from the pantry - they were starting to sprout already, so I put them in the ground. Maybe this year they'll grow into big ol' hamburger onions!

Do you plant a garden? What do you grow?

O..M...Gosh! Is that aparagus? YUMMY!! My mother grows it like crazy, but I can never get it to do anything for me! We love this stuff around my house! Just cut it off while it's still tender and enjoy! Great gardening job!

That is asparagus, Amy. I have a wee patch of it, but once we get a couple more things done around here I'm going to put in a larger asparagus bed. I'm the only one who eats it, and really, I just like it fresh, so I won't need much!
