It is so exciting to see the plants start producing FOOD for us… this is the rewarding time of year when I feel like all the hard, sweaty work is worthwhile.  For some reason we are getting a few asparagus again- that’s fun.  The green beans are going to explode any day now, and someday soon some of our cherry tomatoes might ripen.  We planted delicata (my favorite), acorn and spaghetti squash and mini pumpkins last weekend, and in a month we will plant broccoli and chinese cabbage.  I am getting ready to read some books on gardening all year round, so it is time to put on my thinking cap (does a mom ever take it off?????).
