Spring, glorious spring

Every gardener spends this time of year watching the soil carefully for signs of anything coming to life. Today was that day here in Sidney. The newly planted potato patch sent up its first leaves. I planted four varieties and the first to come up were my brother Steven's Quebec potatoes and the Compassion Farm potatoes. I do not know the real name of either. 

I moved on to the onion patch. Both red and white are up a couple of inches. 

I was standing on my deck admiring and looking around. I was really surprised to see that I have some healthy and good sized asparagus spears. 

The rhubarb is large enough that within a couple weeks, I'll make a crisp. 

I love this time of year.
