Spring has Sprung

Spring Has Sprung!!

This weekend we worked on several outdoor projects.  In the garden we planted butternut squash, zucchini, green beans, peppers, tomatoes, several herbs.
 They are in among the rhubarb, asparagus, potatoes, and onions.  I picked the first batch of asparagus today.
My daughter started working a hydroponics project with peppers.

The tomato seedlings and lettuce seedlings are growing nicely in the house near the window.  
The single surviving grape plant is blooming.  Our pear trees and apple trees are also in bloom.
 Our biggest lilac bush is also beginning to bloom and around here the rumor is when they bloom it is morel mushroom season.  I have yet to go out looking but I likely will.  The only negative about morel mushrooms happens to be the proliferation of ticks this time of year...
