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

Late April feasts and tasks

Asparagus and mushrooms

Are you sick and tired of hearing about goats? I'm sure I'll stop posting cute kid photos eventually. But in the meantime, here's a shot from elsewhere in the homestead to round things out.

In the garden/kitchen, we're eating asparagus almost every day, we got a small flush of shiitakes after the recent rain, and we're gorging on lettuce. We're also starting to mow and weed like crazy as we prepare for the biggest planting push of the year around our frost-free date.

In other words --- business as usual at this beautiful transition season midway between spring and summer!
