I just haven't been that into it.

Blogging, that is.

In case you haven't noticed. Not that there are many of you to notice but I still appreciate the few who do stop by!

I'm not sure whether to throw in the towel or really put some effort into making this something that makes me more encouraged to update.  I haven't built the readership to have real discourse, which make posting seem more pointless, which fails to build readership...

Oh, if only I actually wrote the posts that I thought about posting. If wishes were horses, eh?  ;-)

Well, I feel like maybe I might be ready to dust things off and keep going. We'll see.


First off-property school, coach V riding.
Sadly, I didn't have any paparazzi that day, 
so no pictures of me riding.

 Hellebores! I planted 2 of these in spring 2010. 
I knew they were known for taking a long time to establish 
but I have been worried about the lack of flowers 
and the limited foliage expansion. Suddenly, this year they woke up!

 Our first year harvesting asparagus!  
Completely different from even the freshest store or market-bought.

Armani looks happy and confident in those pictures!

I hear you on the blogging thing... I keep taking more and longer breaks. We'll see if I stick with it this time!

I like reading your updates, even though I often know ahead of time! ;-)

I think I need to have you over this summer for a garden consultation - Richard wants asparagus some day... and I have no idea where to plant it!

Armani was super and I was a very proud momma! He took everything in stride (almost literally, lol).

And yet we don't give it up entirely...:-) I would love to come over for a garden consult (or any other reason, actually!). I still need to have you guys over too!

Asparagus isn't too picky about where it grows. It's early enough that trees haven't leafed out fully, so it gets enough sun even in a location that won't later in the summer. Mature plants will produce longer, so you should still make sure the spot will get at least some good sun every day. Other than that, well-drained soil and a good thick layer of mulch will keep it happy. It takes a few years to establish, so plant this year! Oops, did I just ruin my invite? ;-)
