The Escher family does some spring cleaning and gardening

We are in the first week of May. The grass grows fast with all the rain that April has brought us. We need to buy a new mower. Our last year it was constantly being fixed. I couldn’t believe what the new companies are selling right now. Something or another seems to be giving up or in need of fixing. It’s part of life!

Asparagus pops in the ground. Rhubarb plants look really pretty, and mint plants and spearmint teas appear alongside weeds (really). Those who have winter onions enjoy them. I would like to start again. I haven’t planted any garden yet, but we have our soil to put in the raised garden beds that Joe and the boys have already built. Joe planted some potatoes last night. He’s trying a different method of cultivation, so time will tell if it works or not.
