It’s a little difficult to believe. For me, anyway. But here we are … Looking the end of May in the eye. I’m just not quite sure how that happened so quickly. The garden has been busy! It seems to have gone from dormant, winter mode into full-on spring/summer growing season within days! Okay, maybe weeks.
Let’s take a quick walk around and see what has been happening this month:
The asparagus looks like it’s dancing! I covered the early sprouts with a cloche to protect them from pillaging chickens. And it worked! This meager offering is my best asparagus crop. Ever. But don’t they look funny?
A family friend refers to this time of year – when the choke cherry trees blossom, the maple buds swell, and the tender young leaves start to emerge; when the landscape looks frothy – as “The May”. A lovely, and promising description.
But! Enough of this! There is work to be done…
