It's about that time....garden update! We've been hard at work on ours. We put up some fencing (new and improved over last year's fencing, which the rabbits kept eating holes in).
A few items are already coming up. Remember last year I planted rhubarb and it didn't make it? Well, going for another round this year, and all 3 bunches of rhubarb are up and looking healthy.
And remember last year, when I planted asparagus and it never came up. Well, I replanted aspargus and it came up! Not only that, but the asparagus I planted last year came up! How's that for a random surprise? Now I just have to wait for next year to harvest.
The hens are busy laying. We're getting about 5 eggs a day, from 6 hens (5 of whom are over 2 years old now) so we're stocking up! Can you spot the imposter in this picture? Hint: it's something you would hit with a club...
I love this random tulip. I planted a bunch of them one year, but this is the only one that comes back year after year, fleetingly.
And finally, I'm going to try my hand at garlic. I use it in just about every dish I make. And it claims, on the package, that it's "Easy to Grow". We will see.
