Spring Garden

Ah, finally spring is in the air and my garden started to really take shape. It's really running behind the schedule but I guess better late than never. So here we go.

Asparagus is awake eventhough it's only 2nd year for it it's doing pretty good. Wish I had more space for it. Next to it is spinach and in between some arugula sprinkled. Two types of lettuces are also peaking through - red on the back and green in front. Unfortunately all those spiky greens in between are dill that went into bloom last year and contaminated my entire garden so I'll be "weeding" dill all spring long to make sure that it doesn't suffocate my other greens. Here we have broccoli, swiss chard, spinach and some tulips. Some of the seeds from salads last year decided to grow this year - go figure. I guess I'll have extra salad. Also some of the last year's parsley came through and really took off too! Garlic is doing fantastic! I forgot to dig it out last year and it really took off this year so I'll be planting quite a bit of it in the fall.
Believe it or not these gorgeous Morels grow in our back yard! The only problem are that all deers LOVE them and unfortunately having much more sensitive snouts they get to them first. Oh well. Can't win them all.

And guess what we have to add to dinner tonight? First harvest - asparagus and parsley.
