Spring has Sprung!
In the garden, the green onions are coming back. The parsley is returning; I didn't even know parsley was a perennial. Is it? Maybe it reseeded itself. The chives are poking their slim green head above the ground, too. But the asparagus, the new plants I put in last year? Gone. No sign of them. Sigh. Maybe they didn't have enough sun; maybe I bought a bad batch. I'll try again in a new location and see what happens. It's a bit discouraging when asparagus takes 2-3 years to develop. Losing a year in the process - well, there's always the Farmers' Market!
