I like moving on. Fresh starts. In the garden there are always new beginnings. Spring brings the eagerly anticipated asparagus, along with rhubarb, and if we are lucky, over-wintered spinach. Then peas, swiss chard, lettuce, strawberries, kohlrabi, in steady succession. These are followed through the warmer weeks by cucumbers, blueberries, carrots, squash, cabbage, parsnips, potatoes, tomatoes… And just when you begin to tire of finding ways to use your bounty, the yields dwindle. Plants die and it is time to pull them out, turn over the lovely dirt full of worms, and plant a few rows of lettuce and spinach. With luck, we can keep them going until snowfall.
