A day of garden firsts
Monday was a day of firsts for 2015. First pass of the lawn mower through the garden...
...first blooming strawberry (which would have been more photogenic if I'd snapped the shot before the lawn mower dusted the plant with grass clippings)...
...first day I trusted the long-range forecast enough to put our tomatoes and basil outside in the cold frame
(you sure can tell the difference between the plants that were right up
against the window and those who had to cope with less light inside)...
...and the first delicious taste of homegrown asparagus (which we promptly roasted).
garden excitement was punctuated by the sound of three tethered goats
chomping as quickly as they could through the new greenery. Well,
Artemesia tried to jump up in my wheelbarrow as I passed by, Lamb Chop
did his level best to tangle everyone up in his lead, and Abigail stood
guard against the terrifying sound of the lawn mower. But our herd did
some grazing too.
