I think the other way around, perhaps because I never had much room. I go to the garden centre looking for a plant that would be happy in such and such a place. It works!

I'm like you, Spud, trying to find the ideal spot for a tree or bush. I've run out of places. I find new volunteer seedlings all the time--oak, redbud, peach, apple, and the ubiquitous silver maple (and ash). I hate killing them, but otherwise....

Spud, your garden grows more interesting all the time. A stroll through it, picking what is ripe and eating it and finding more treasures as you ramble through will keep you so healthy, you will live to a ripe old age with dignity and pride. What a life!

Thanks Don.  I'll check around.

No need to buy rhubarb plants, Spud, not if you know anyone who grows it.  The plants benefit from dividing every four or five years or so, and the gardeners I know love to give it away.

The thought of freshly cut asparagus tingles my taste buds. 

Don, your garden space looks beautiful each season. Your visitor knows quality when he sees it. 

I will check my rhubarb when I visit my home tomorrow. Rhubarb sauce, a favorite of mine.

I have more room for a garden than you do Chris, but not near as much room as I would like. 

To make more room, I'm going to prune-out most of the cheap, poor-tasting blackberries from Wal-Mart, that are taking-over the garden, and if they don't taste any better this year, I'll take them all out.

I've just realized that the best place for my pomegranate is on the south side of my white storage shed, between the white house and wooden fence.  That should keep it warm in the spring and summer and fall.  For winter, it should be relatively easy to built a greenhouse, using the house, shed, and fence as part of the structure.

Glad to hear you baked yourself a pie, Randall.  For me, as a gardener, it's not yet a rewarding spring until I've steamed some new asparagus and made a rhubarb pie.  Here is last year's:

More orders! Your garden must be enormous!

The cats don't know about pictures, but they do know when they have my attention.

And another Alpine Strawberry.
