The asparagus continues.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to harvest as much asparagus as I could have considering that we’ve had several hard frosts in between warm weather, so I’ve lost a decent amount of spears.
Nonetheless, this is my first year harvesting asparagus and I am delighted with it.
Despite the fluctuating weather, the rest of the garden is doing well.
This year, I’ve decided to experiment with using tomato cages for the snap peas. We’ll see how that goes.
Here is the broccoli.
And the potato leaves are starting to emerge.
Here is my little helper enjoying himself in one of my carrot beds. I haven’t been at all concerned about him wreaking havoc in my garden because I love that he enjoys digging in the dirt. Of course, I would prefer he play in his sandbox rather than my garden beds, but I would also prefer he play in my garden beds rather than watch tv and play video games all day. So I absolutely want to encourage him to play outside and cultivate his love of dirt.
Anyway, for the rest of my spring garden that is not photographed, I have one bed dedicated to beets, and one bed with chard and spinach. I’m about to begin harvesting rhubarb (seen in the background of the above video).
