Our asparagus continues to come in almost faster than I can harvest it.
I missed one day in cutting it and look what happened. Stalks two feet tall!
Our apple trees are finally blossoming. Some in full bloom and some just starting.
This is the third year for this dwarf Chestnut Crab Apple. Last year it bore heavily and the apples were the best eating apples we had. (I didn't know crab apples could taste so good.) They were bigger than the average crab apple, a bit over 2" across, and we each ate one a day, sometimes two.
Since we were so enamored with the flavor of this crab apple variety, we ordered another one which we planted this spring. Look at the blossoms on this skinny, little stick of a tree. Impressive!
We have several Honey Crisp dwarf trees that are in their third year. With luck, we may get some tasty fruit from them, too.
Late blossoming this year, yes, but at least they didn't do it before one of our many late frosts. Maybe they knew what they were doing.
