My asparagus bed has been pitiful for the past two years. We bought just a few plants because they were so stinkin expensive. Then two of them did not do well so it was time to re-up or give up. So my darling hubby brought me home 20 plants today and they are now tucked away in their bed and I am ecstatic. This time next year I will be able to harvest enough for a meal. And that will save me lots of dough because asparagus is the priciest fresh vegetable.
Then we went for a walk on our trail through our woods. It is just as horrible as we thought it would be. Trees down everywhere. It is early enough spring that we just took detours, but soon enough things will take off and those detours will be dense undergrowth. Some time soon we will have to chainsaw through it...but not very soon.
Next, we had a small fire. We have 10,000,000 small sticks around our house that we piled up on a stump we have been trying to burn for years. The fire was small, the marshmalows were great and the ambience was very much needed. Nothing soothes my soul as much as sitting around a fire. Luckily, we have enough sticks and logs to have a fire every night for the next five years.
Because of the calming fire, I just took it in stride that my dishwasher is broken. It sucks, but honestly, what good would stressing do? We are going to try to figure it out on our own researching the internet. If that doesn't work, it will have to wait a while-gutters are coming tomorrow and 'winders'(windows for you non-ky folk) after that. Our home improvement funds are pretty well tapped out.
Tomorrow I am planning on planting some taters. I love growing my own taters. You can harvest them little and they are sooooo much better than the ones from the store.
This has been a very busy week but I am so thankful spring has sprung!!
