I’ve been enjoying all the wonderful blooms from the garden lately, and the beginning vegetables. Picked these lovely sweet peas (love them because they only last a day or two, and they only bloom for a short while but are so lovely!). This year, I’m trying to find my asparagus.
We’d let the garden from years past get overrun. (Truth? I planted 5 horseradish plants and it took over). Successive helpers continued rototilling it until I had bits of horseradish, probably 200 plants coming up all over.
It took a man 2 days to dig them all up last year. I have still a few that pop up, but they are manageable.
So now I’m discovering my asparagus! I had some beautiful purple giant ones coming up before, and I’ve seen 2-3 so far this year. My famous saying is: My Garden Isn’t Dead. It’s Sleeping.
So, when I was picking sweet peas this morning, I got the little asparagus tip too. It will make it to my dinner plate tonight…
Hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day. Remembering all the things we get to have and experience because others stepped up and made the sacrifice. Can’t say thank you enough. Our
flag is sometimes tattered, like our gardens that are barren and overrun with weeds, but if we continue to remember those sacrifices and never lose the passion in our lives, the bloom of new life will always return.
