Garden journal entry


not much of a meal
April 09, 2011. As far as I'm concerned, today was this year's first real day of gardening. Sure, I'd been out before in previous weeks - but that was because I had to (so many dead stalks to chop down and shred!), not because the goddess of the garden was singing her irresistable song. But today, I heard her first few notes, and heeded her call to go outside in the sunny weather and commune with the dirt (sticky dirt for sure, after several more days of drenching rain this past week). And sure enough, I came across a few unexpected displays by early risers in the garden. There were the cute fuzzy-flat-folded new leaves of Asarum canadense, which somehow had escaped my attention in years past; and the miniature asparus shoots of Asparagus schoberioides – tinier and earlier than those of its big cousin, common asparagus. I may not have accomplished much of note today, but at least it feels like the season is now officially underway!
