Time waits for no (wo)man

The weather here has been crazy- hot one day and the frost warning another day. Welcome to spring in TN :-)

With all the other spring activities (TCAPs, Field Trips, Overdue notices) i really haven't been in the garden.  Fortunately though, nature carries on without me. 

I finally have 2 asparagus shoots and maybe some carrots.

My first asparagus :-)

Carrots maybe?

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Ahead of the game

Not really but some things that I planted in the summer are still growing. It has taken a bit of uncovering but some things are found.  It gives me a little hope.

Uncovered Asparagus

Two green places are the asparagus

Besides uncovering some lettuce, I also found the catnip that survived.
My kitties favorite

I also moved the German thyme from the front to the garden as well.

The grass clippings to help hold moisture

It begins....again

Tonight is the night that I started digging in the dirt again :-)
The day was beautiful and a balmy 79 degrees.  We had a great time, my kitties and I, pulling and planning the upcoming seasons.

This is what the begining of the season looks like at my house.
Fortunately the ceramic tiles appear to be doing their job and have kept the outline of where the garden was last summer.

I think I have learned a little from last year. I remember that when I took out all the green from where I dug, it soil got so compacted that nothing would grow.
After 1 1/2 hours

I am so glad a started this last year.
