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.

Nice looking cats.  I wonder if they know what you're doing when you take pictures of them.

I just ordered a bare-root pomegranate tree.

Almost. Luna is a tuxedo cat, but with a black back she gets overheated too.

A nice order! I hope it all thrives! I'm still waiting for my blackcurrants to show some action, but they probably just survived the shop where I found them, so I 'll have patience.

Chris, I think I'd prefer cats in my garden rather than bears. : )

Do you have 2 black cats?  I think I only remember seeing one in your pictures.

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 9, 2015 at 10:00am

I just ordered a rhubarb root, 25 asparagus roots, an alpine strawberry plant, 2 kinds of raspberries, and a blackberry.
