Welcome to gardeners, growers of veggies, fruits, flowers, and trees!
Welcome backyard hen enthusiasts, worm farmers, beekeepers & composters!
I thought about eating some of my asparagus in the best patch, but it's still rather on the thin side, so I decided leave it be, so it can gather strength. It would only have made half a serving anyway. None of the 4 patches in different parts of the garden are doing well at all.
The strawberry plants all have flowers, and are looking healthy. I'm going to prune back the raspberries and blackberries to give them more room.
I had hail yesterday, I worried, but it did almost no damage. I loved hail when I was young and not worried about the damage it might do to my garden.

Here in Vermont, after a snowy winter, the gardening season is only just now getting underway. Friday i fertilized the asparagus bed and the raspberries. Yesterday I planted lettuces, beets, and radishes. The garlic is up three inches, the rhubarb is vigorously pushing up through the mulch, and the daffodils have begun to bloom. Sometime Saturday night a big black bear plodded through the tilled garden plot and turned over my big buckets of compost. He had paid us a visit at dusk last weekend, looking for food; comestibles are scarce this time of the year. Here he is, and here's the garden on Saturday, ready for action.
Why that image of the bear loaded upside-down i have no idea. Strange.
