Another garden "harvest"

Another garden harvest!

We've been getting asparagus all spring long, but I haven't really considered that as our own crop - the asparagus plants were already here when we bought the property last year. My husband thought they looked unique growing wild out in a field behind our house (the plants were about 3 foot tall & all in seed), so he didn't mow them when he cleared the field, but instead researched them & sure enough, they were asparagus. Since then, we've cleaned up the asparagus patch, & have been enjoying them ever since. Thank you to whoever planted it long, long ago!

I can't believe you are getting zucchini already!! And the asparagras!! I am so jealous!! LOL! -- our asparagras got destroyed when they put in the new fence around the preschool play yard about a year ago! You are so lucky to have it. It takes at least a year to get asparagras after you plant it. And Dave has been mentioning that he would really LOVE some of that zucchini relish I make. I just need to wait till we have the zucchinis!! I may make a little strawberry jam tomorrow though. -- Barb

I feel that way about our blueberry and huckleberry bushes.
