Surviving winter

I loved my parents garden when I was younger but it is only now that I realise how much hard work it takes to keep it going…

It was a rough, long winter but we made it through and so did the perennial vegetables. Let the spring feasting begin!

Yesterday, I enjoyed a spring meal of asparagus, stinging nettles and parsnip. I’ve also been eating Jerusalem artichokes, dandelions, and horseradish, along with a few salads made from the greens I started inside. We’re also harvesting crosnes (Chinese artichokes) and apios.

It’s great to see the birds return and even see the life return to the garden — such as earthworms. I wrote an article on earthworms for Small Farm Canada a couple months ago and needed pictures. I went around my neighbourhood asking farmers for access to manure piles but they were all covered. Finally I found a few worms in a neighbour’s potting mix and staged the shots inside. Lesson learned: take as many pictures when I can for future stories.
