Picked a fair amount of fiddleheads with my doggy this morning. Perfect timing for easy and plentiful picking.

My garlic bed, planted in the fall. Just waiting for scapes now!
One of my asparagus beds.
This was a lousy year for my poor snow crocus. From the time they emerged they were bashed around in the north wind we had for several days. They were never particularly photographable during their blooming period. All my daffodils and hyacinths are out now.
These sunny yellow crocus had an easier blooming period, being planted in a bit more shelter and shade.
The siberian squill was out in full force to accompany the glory of the snow.
Blue glory of the snow.

Indoor transplants in March.
Indoor transplants in April.
Indoor transplants in early May.
I've started to move some things outdoors to harden off like leeks, a few petunias I'll have to cover if it dips below freezing and some rather large celery plants. We really need to get the garden planted, I have peas, lettuces and other greens and all kinds of scallions planted so far even though we've been awfully busy working on our home renos. This weekend should be a good weekend to get a lot of things planted and I'll be able to plant a few things every day until then.

It's time to start eating the parsnips. We leave our parsnips in the ground, covered well with a good layer of mulch, for the entire winter. We dig them up around this time of year, it's easiest to wait until the snow is gone, and enjoy their super sweetness. They taste like candy and when roasted with a chicken, make the best gravy I've ever tasted. I see some tasty parsnip soup in my future...
