Busy but Happy!


I bought asparagus yesterday- the box has 10 plants - hopefully some spring day in 2 years, I will be dining on my own fresh asparagus. We love it and it's $1.89 lb. if we're lucky. Plus it's pretty in the garden.

Another great day going - a bit overcast. Having an issue with starlings all over my yard, They think they own it and I have to swing a towel over my head to chase them (crazy lady at it again).

Thought of blogville as I was headed down to the pantry to get pasta so here I sit~ I'm making the pasta salad mentioned a bit ago. Plumber is to be coming to do a couple things, company is on it's way, S&R coming for dinner.

Who said retirement is boring?!

We did not realize anything last year, but this year there were a few stalks that were edible and
delicious. We left some to go to seed...the third year is thye charm..
