I love this week of the year in Maine! The daffodils just opened today around one of the cherry trees. Everything is late this year, the weather has been colder than usual. But they are also just in time, because I am going to New Mexico tomorrow, and I was worried I would miss their grand openings.I have also been watching the emergence of the perennials we planted last year.
Who knew that rhubarb looked so weird as it comes out? Like a translucent reddish egg splitting open with wrinkled up green brains inside.
And the sea kale is purple and wrinkly too. It will get much bigger as it grows!
The turkish rocket looks healthy and multiple. This will be the first year we can really taste these perennial vegetables–I hope we like them! I’ve also now planted some lettuce and carrots, and the snap peas are just breaking the surface of the soil. Margy is going to water them while I am away for these next few days.
