The last 2 weeks have made a big change in the garden area. The garden is mostly tilled and has been providing some harvest. The spinach is doing very well and Sunday I was able to give some to a lady in our church that really loves it. I will post some pics of the progress soon. The Asparagus is also doing well, We had our first bunch Saturday the 9th of April and had a very large bunch today. We brush it with olive oil and then sprinkle garlic salt on it and wrap it in aluminum foil and grill it for about 15 minutes. I have planted 2 rows of corn and hope it will not be lost to frost.
We usually don’t have late frost here because we are at a good elevation for this area. The elevation is also a plus for the wind turbine. I am going to set one in top of a tree that I have topped and see how it works. It will be about 30 feet up. I also have a tower to put one on but want to try the tree first. I am planning on the tree living so I won’t have to remove or replace the structure any time soon. I will also upload some pics of the install. The fruit trees are just about done blooming and the cherry trees bloomed very heavy too. We have seen a lot of honey bees in the trees this year and that is a good sign, since we haven’t seen too many for several years.. Maybe I can find the honey tree and rob some of the honey this fall. I spent some time in the woods Friday and again Sunday and found about 30 black morels. We had them for lunch today and for me this is a real treat.. Hope to find more soon and will continue to look and post if I find any more.
