I thought my friend Johanna and some of you might enjoy listening to Molly Fisk's thoughts on asparagus. It is an MP3 podcast. Or you can read the essay, here.
I know we are past asparagus season, and well into the heat that makes lettuces bolt. Hopefully you have some Swiss chard which is delicious well into the heat of summer before it, too, will bolt with seed stalks, although I always remember the leaves being good additions to quiche dishes through most of the season.
Today a newbie mower cracked the septic tank cover. Don't ask. Newbie mowers do things that you don't imagine will happen to either the garden or the mower itself. The mower seems to have survived. However it gave me a chance to field a DIY idea I had to my husband. Why not make a movable deck that covers that area? Big enough for a wooden picnic table right next to a garden space and not too far from the house and from his office space. He liked the idea.
