Today's harvest

Yep, this is it. It didn't exactly take all morning to haul the crops in. However, it was a nice treat to drop the asparagus in the water I was cooking potatoes in, drain, add a hint of butter and eat. A tasty, tiny snack. Half of the spear went to my husband's lunch. The rhubarb will make for a nice glass of rhubarbade.

It has been especially warm and a lot of the plants in my garden are about a month ahead of schedule. We have been harvesting lovage and chives for a while. The clove currants are blooming. I'm just starting to see a hint of the radish and spinach plants.

It was a nice morning to get out into the garden, weed and see how much the plants have been growing. I've joined the "normal" work world this year so am mainly able to garden on the weekends. Hopefully, I can get out there a bit more in the summer. There is nothing like starting the day with weeding, watering and munching on fresh raspberries. I can't wait.

Went and checked on my Rhubarb this afternoon and it is still pretty small. With partial shade, I won't enjoy my Rhubarb until mid May.

My hubby planted spinach this afternoon so that was exciting.

Yay for harvests!
It was 85 degrees here today, unseasonably warm for sure. The poor tulips just bloomed and they are already drooping!

Nice that you shared the early asparagus with your husband.

This has been a Wisconsin spring like no other, right? Enjoy.

Now you have to tell us about rhubarbade. What is it and how do you make it? My asparagus has three little stalks about 3 inches high. Can't wait. I just planted rhubarb. Have to wait until next year for it.

Spinach, carrots, summer squash, zuchinni, onions, and lettuce have just popped out this week. Tomatoes and peppers are ready to plant. Yum.

Thanks for visiting!
