2021 rectory garden dining begins today

A week after weeding the asparagus patch a half dozen sprigs of asparagus popped up. This one was ready to pick today. For measurement, that’s a USCCA (special) pen I tend to carry with me.

Meanwhile, the other day 10 tomatoes were planted about six weeks before the locals say the last frost will take place. So, a risk. I’ll be watching morning temps like a hawk, ready to cover the plants if necessary.

Meanwhile, two types of lettuce were planted in the front steps planter-boxes. A few have sprouted up about 1/4″. Lettuce loves cold weather. I think I could have planted the lettuce months ago.

Meanwhile, a stick I ripped off a pear tree while leaving the hermitage the last time has sprouted leaves.

In Venezuela, by far the richest country in South America, now the poorest, people are eating dogs to survive. This is what the Demoncrats are doing to our country. Be prudent. Plant a garden. Oh, and it’s healthy. And it’s super delicious. No vaccine passport to go to the grocery store? No worries. Pick something to much on from your garden.

    “Meanwhile, a stick I ripped off a pear tree while leaving the hermitage the last time has sprouted leaves.”

    My brother recently sent me an email saying that he looked at the portions of his peach tree that he had pruned, and decided to plant one (I gather that this had happened at an earlier date). He reported that it had started to grow leaves and now had a blossom on it. He was quite excited about it.

    Tip for cleaning your asparagus patch: pour salt on it. Doesn’t hurt the asparagus, but will kill the grass and weeds.
