Being in May I am going to clear off the porch, and then I am going to plant asparagus and some grape vines.
Once I’ve made a bed using the still-good joists from the old deck, I’m planting asparagus and strawberries. We’re still trying to figure out the best place to plant grapes. (I sometimes envy you not being in a city lot. And having woods.)
I like the urban life too, good and not so good to both.
Yes. I’m 99% happy with my old lot. So many new houses going up have only a tiny lawn in front and maybe a deck in back. I need my dirt!
One of the places we used to farm sit had grapes…soon good…and an asparagus bed. We were often there at the right time and it put us off shop bought forever!
I used to put the steamer on the hob, go out to harvest some spears, then straight into the steamer and served with butter. It’s really something. Have a lovely evening.
fresh is the best, so different
Good. Like the very top patch- the energy of it. Stitching, watching and listening to the rain here. Grateful for another day. oxo
energy. always useful. somedays hard to come by
The first veggie to be harvested every year here for us.
What absolut joy.
looking forward to them…
Your posts every day remind me to look for the small pleasures in life.
usually they are there
Have a great day. Sounds dreamy, like walking through the clouds!
dreamy days are soft.
In our other rental in New Mexico, we had grapevines that gave us well over 50 lbs of grapes each year. R made wine from these grapes but the less said about that the better although it was great on salads…1 What we loved to do was make raisins, drying the grapes on window screens propped up on bricks, laboriously pulling off each twiggy stem…some of our best conversations came over the table sorting our raisins.
To our surprise when we moved to this rental, 17 miles away, a previous tenant had planted a little grapevine that is trailing green leaves and tendrils all over the wired structure that was built. A clump of tiny grapes was all that we harvested last year but whether we get any grapes or not this year, just seeing the sprawling green leaves, the curly tendrils is enough to bring joy…
grapes are easy really , lots or just a little, they make me happy
Hurray for asparagus, grape vines and porches!
Today I am going to take DEEP BREATHS & plant flowers and stake my tomatoes, and take a tiny “cowboy” quilt and pillow I made to a 4 yr old who requested it for his Woody doll ( from Toy Story)…so darn cute! Life is still hopeful 🥰
Have a HAPPY day, Jude! 💚
life itself is just that.
Both very good additions to the garden. I need to get more lettuce planted and a few other things. Needs to wait until tomorrow though.
Yeah, got some wild grapes already. And first time for asparagus. Tomorrow will be here soon enough. Warming up here suddenly.
Have a good day! I’m going to plant onions and maybe divide some perennials to put in my front garden bed.
the sun is out, the plug about to be pulled.
