The warm weather has finally arrived! We are all so very happy.
Now the real work has begun ... seedlings are going into the ground and seeds are being sown directly into the beds.
Our new MAN TOY has arrived ... a FLAME THROWER!! Yes, flame thrower. We use it to wilt the weeds. This is important for putting in new beds. Tilling just brings weeds that have been undereground and hibernating to the surface and then they sprout! Using chemicals is using ... well, chemicals. So this is pretty impressive to get rid of weeds easily. Click over to the WHAT'S HAPPENING page to see a pic!
Asparagus is coming in! You really want to grow asparagus ... it comes up when the weather turns and BOOM! There is it, ready to harvest and cook!
