The Promise of Sweetness

It doesn't look like much at the moment, but the rhubarb is coming up nicely. I can't wait! I'm attempting to blanch it this year so that I can harvest something close to forced rhubarb: the plant is currently covered by an upturned garbage bin.

It was a perfect day for gardening today: slightly overcast, not overly warm. I didn't get as much done as I had hoped to, but it was a good beginning. Slowly, my stamina will build up to sustain day-long hoeing sessions. At least my garden looks a little tidier, and most of my groundhog fencing is standing straight again.

Happy day!
