The weather here has been amazing for the last couple of weeks. On a sunny weekend two weeks ago Q put in a new set of bricks to delineate the driveway. The primary purpose was to create the new asparagus bed at the front of the yard.
The west side - now I won't have to constantly try to keep the "driveway weeds" from encroaching on the beds.
The east side - including the new asparagus bed. I hope they come up soon so I know my planting was a success. I put 14 up here and 6 more up by the house to see if they could do okay in shadier conditions. Hopefully, two years of waiting and we'll have asparagus.Q's birthday cake - special request of yellow cake with chocolate frosting. He's a man of simple wants. The only stimulation was that I didn't substitute any ingredients - including using plain old white wheat flour.
A sixth rhubarb baby has just barely burst forth. We've been having 60 degree days and 28 degree mornings. I hope the light frosts aren't hurting the early leaves.
Here's the full seedling growing set-up. The light is on a timer to be on 6a - 6p each day. I've unplugged the heat mat for the time being since they've gotten bigger now. They seem to be liking the set-up so far.
