The brassicas are growing nicely. They are large enough that I can take the chicken wire off of them.

Come walk with me through my garden. Evening is my favorite time to check the progress in my plot of Earth. This is a cold, rainy year and some of my crops are doing great and some are not very happy.
I'm so excited over the progress of the asparagus patch.

This is a particularly yummy year for my garden. Some of my perennials are starting to flourish and I'm realizing some long held dreams for this spot of earth. My pear tree is blossoming (above). I bought it as a spindly little thing a few years ago. Now every graft has set on a flourish of blossoms. I'm told I'll have to pick off much of the fruit this year. Its best for the tree to put more energy into the roots. It also makes the fruit that is left bigger. I don't like culling and thinning. Its not in my nature, but it is an important skill every gardener must develop. How like life!
