Dogwoods and dandelion are blooming and asparagus spears are poking up. Its that special time of spring. In the garden, we are mowing and turning under the cover crops that have grown since the fall (hairy vetch and winter rye). Then we will cover with newspaper and compost until planting time, giving the organic matter time to break down and feed the soil. I planted an apple tree (Pink Lady) last weekend. Will give her a photo shoot soon. Happy spring everyone!


  1. Hi Hannah,

    I work w/ your wonderful Mom at Goddard, who shared your blog. This post reminded me of asparagus coming up when I was kid in San Diego, California, and the lovely long fern-like leaves that come too. Thank - you!

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed the asparagus photo. We look forward to it each spring. It is doing so well now... and it is so odd to see the giant, lovely ferns when it is only the spears we are think of in the store.
