What did I do to prep this week?

By Bev Sandlin, Executive Editor

I would like to thank everyone for their wonderful articles this week! Absolutely inspiring some of the ideas that you are sharing!

I’m going to share a little bit of my garden this week with you. Never know, there might be a couple of things you could use here. :-)

I have been eating fresh asparagus daily! Some is starting to bolt, but this is aasparagus typical morning gathering.

Are you familiar with perennial onions? Yes, even in Minnesota! They are used more like chives—just the greens for a taste adventure.

I have two or three types of rhubarb. This small style has bolted already.rhubarb bolting

 

I planted the rhubarb under my dwarf apple trees as a living mulch. Note the asphalt shingles left over from a project? EXCELLENT EDGING! They have stayed in place even in the flood waters when the heavy 4×4 wood beams floated away. Note how some of the grass is hay height? Too wet yet to mow! Plus I can run my lawnmower wheels on them and edge the grass perfectly. AND if I want worms, I just lift them up and pick the worms and nightcrawlers up! Excess shingles can often be had for free after a roofing project is done. They are light, easy to move and can be formed into curves and circles. NO DIGGING – I like that!

Okay Patriots, what did YOU do this week to prepare?
