We have been cutting asparagus like mad lately, thanks to Travis for keeping up with it! Ah... fresh veggies from the garden. Simply broiled with olive oil and sea salt, asparagus is the cherished first veggie of the spring for us here. Soon to follow will be lettuce, radishes and other salad crops. The peas are starting to take off as well, and plantings of carrots, broccoli, cabbage, turnips, onions, beets, spinach, and more are underway. I am welcoming the forecasted rain for the next few days to get the seeds a'sprouting and the plants in the garden growing happily.
