Well, first off, the asparagus is starting to grow! This is really exciting. It’s tiny, but doubles every few days or so. These are the asparagus crowns a friend gave us. The seeds still won’t be due to sprout for possibly another week.
I am starting to build another hugel as well. Right now it’s the pile of rotting logs and wood chips on cardboard in the background, but next year it will look more like the flower/herb garden in front. There are so many butterflies, bumble bees and honey bees around the garden this year, and way more berries everywhere than last year. Perhaps something to do with the constant frigid rain we had a year ago. . .
Here’s the small nettle bed, with a couple borage plants that self-seeded last year.
And a tiny lavender from the eccentric Five Sisters Lavender Farm. Below is the bed with four tiny lavenders in it.
