The glaciers are almost gone here at Small Wonder Farm. The ground below is still pretty frozen, so the worst of the muddy season is still around the bend. I picked a huge bowl of spinach today and planted fingerling potatoes and indoor germinated sugar pea plants in the high tunnel.
Now that the main garden has had the glacier recede, I took a walk back there.Despite absolutely knowing that there is no way asparagus can be coming up yet, I had to check. Anticipation of what is to come might be one of the biggest gifts to a gardener. I will console myself with memories of last year’s crop.
