As I was (very belatedly) pruning my last roses today, look what I noticed poking up to say hello!:

The asparagus is up!!

We always plant our asparagus with our strawberries and garlic, and thus far it's been a great companion planting arrangement. Maybe it's not the "approved" method, but if it works for us, then I'm sticking to it!

Some random pictures...

Here's a plate of heirloom dry pole & runner beans saved from 2010.

Here are my Scarlet Runner Bean seeds ready for planting this year! Most people don't realize that, besides being incredibly ornamental, you CAN eat runner beans as both snap and dry. I love multi-tasking vegetables!
