Just picked the first three 8" spears, culminating a year of preparation, uncertainty, and waiting. There are at least 10 more teeny ones currently coming up. It's gratifying.
Peas, onions, and potatoes are coming along nicely. I have 16 tomato seedlings still under grow-lights in the kitchen. Hoping to do the third rhubarb harvesting tomorow, in time to make a nice dessert for a dinner party tomorrow night.
Maybe there is hope, after all.
