Gardener’s Journal – 3/11/11

The big news from the garden this week is that the ~80 garlic bulbs my son & I planted last October are poking their little heads above the mulch!  How exciting!  At the same time though, I am a bit worried about the asparagus – I thought that might be showing some signs of life by now, but alas not.. I always remember that scene in Barbara Kingsolver’s “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” where they rush out to uncover and cut the first asparagus.  This is my asparagus’ plants third year – I grew them from seed in 2009 and haven’t tasted one bit of them yet – you have to wait to let them get established – can’t wait to have our first spears coated in butter and ground black pepper – ummmh! 

This weekend I am going to sow some onion seed, pot on my seedlings and sow some peas – can’t wait – it is supposed to be a good weather weekend! Oh and we still have to finish off harvesting the honey (we just received our new freezer to store the frames in!).
