This tour will be relatively short because there's not much happenin' out in the garden yet.
We've had two days of rain now and a layer of fog was heavy when we got up this morning. Now about two hours later, the fog has mostly lifted but a mist is still falling.
We had our first meal of asparagus night before last. Wahoo! More will be on the plate tonight.
I wanted a dousing of rain on my chives before I started prepping them for the freezer. Got that. Now I need to wait until they dry before cutting. But they're certainly ready.
This is the bottom half of my two remaining strawberry rows. (I'm standing about halfway down the rows.) The Cavendish plants I ordered to replace the Earliglows I tore out last fall were shipped yesterday. They will go in a row to the right of the rows showing.
I've read for best flavor you should not cut your rhubarb stalks until they are 12" long. After this rain, there will be rhubarb cake on our table very soon.
The garlic is coming along nicely. If you look at the bed to the right of the garlic bed and off the far corner of it, you can see (almost) what's left of the blueberry bushes after I took out all the Witches' Broom fungus. The remaining bushes have slight buds showing, but no leaves so far.
The haskap bushes are leafing out like crazy. That's one of the two Borealis bushes in the foreground and a Berry Smart Blue behind it which is now over five feet tall.
Looks as though this will be another inside day, but that's fine. We did need the rain. Our temp was 43° first thing this morning. Not warm, but better than in the 30s as we have been having so it's all good.
