The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

The timeline of a spring rain

Roasting asparagus

On the sixth straight day of rain, the creek finally started to rise. The asparagus responded a few days earlier, beginning to provide whole meals of spears around day three. Tenacious weeds loosened their grip on the earth on day four. And on day five, trees and bushes sudden seemed twice as green.

Gotta love spring rains after a dry spell!
