Yesterday was so beautiful, 84 degrees and just a nice breeze blowing across the yard. I could not resist walking through the side yard and over to the asparagus patch. After five minutes or so of looking it over I found one, lonely little spear!
Its almost hard to make out with all the grass around it but there it was about three inches tall. Now it won't make much of a meal but it is a good sign that I will be stocking up soon. The asparagus batch is like my version of being able to go mushroom hunting. (I have not been mushroom hunting but once since I moved to Missouri and never found a one.) You can go out there one morning and there with be nothing but go back later in the afternoon and you can see all the little spears sticking up out of the ground.
What really makes it funny is that though the patch is in the side yard... we have found asparagus growing 50 feet from in in the ditch out front, down the side yard, in the base of bushes. It seems to be everywhere. I love it!
Here are a few Italian phrases for today:
#1 - Osa l'inosabile.
Reach for the stars.
#2 - Tassi'!
Not much else is going on around here. I am reading a good book that I borrowed from my husband. For his English class they were given an assignment to write a paper on a subject of interest to them. Wendell chose the Holocaust. One of the books he had was a collection of diaries from a young girl named Nonna Bannister. I picked it up and was immediately sucked in. I have not finished it yet but will tell you more about it when I have. Right now, I can't imagine what it was like for her growing up in Russia back then.
Well I hope you all have a very happy Tuesday! I am hoping to get out in the yard and try to start the pool cleaning process and work a little more at getting the garden spot ready for planting this weekend. More on that later too!
Take Care and hope you enjoy a beautiful day!
