In this picture my niece Savannah is checking out the asparagus. It is a little past picking time but there are a few spears that my Dad let me have and it is sooo yummy. This asparagus is in i'ts second year, so the reason we don't pick it after it's first 6 weeks of the season is to let the roots get nice and healthy to produce even more next year.
I liked this baby pine tree. It will be fun to see it grow through the years.
Notice the yield sign across the road with a cow on it. :)
Isn't this a cool old mower? My parents have always liked antiques. When I was around 9 years old we had a draft horse and an antique pioneer hand plow. My little sister and I would sit on him and guide him pulling the plow while my Dad would be behind us handling the plow. We have video of it. I love that memory.
Romaine lettuce. Yum.
Here is a picture of the asparagus at the base. It is a really neat plant. The tops are all feathery and have little tiny berries on them. I have some planted at my house but they are not up yet. I have wondered if they would come up at all because it was a last minute purchase at a hardware store. I have wondered if the roots were even alive. My Dad told me he had the same thoughts about these asparagus, and it took about 3 months for them to surface. I will keep watering mine and hope for the best. I would so love to have it at my house.
