Did you hear that noise yesterday? You must have. It was around 9:30 am Eastern Time; a loud, excited “Whoop-ing” sound. People must have stopped and wondered. Walked outside to listen. Asked each other, “Did you hear that? It sounded sort of like someone shouted ‘Rhubarb!'”
It was just me. Sorry if it unnerved anyone…
The tarragon is looking good, too.
We finally got a good, warm day yesterday (52F), and it coincided with a Babysitter Day for Angel…I was suited-up and out the door before Miss Jackie even got her jacket off. By lunchtime, the climbing roses were no longer in danger of eating my house (or whacking me in the face when I work in the herb bed at their feet), and all the sucker-sprouts were cut from the little apple tree in the kitchen garden.
I ventured up to the Upper Beds to check things out…
Still no sign on the asparagus, as expected, but the garlic is shooting skyward. Pulled a few scraggly winter weeds and moved along…
Coming back down to the raised beds, I was joined by my Favorite Helper:
“You helping me weed, Sparky?” I asked.
“Nope!” she replied. “Me and Miss Jackie are looking for WORMS!”
And so they were. They found three of them, which Angel carefully lifted out of one bed, carried across the garden, and left in another bed.
A year ago, she was terrified of moths, now she’s carrying earthworms around. Progress!
