Originally, I was thinking that, in all likelihood, we wouldn't see apples for a few years, but I'm glad to be proven wrong. The swiss chard it really starting to grow too.
(This picture is a week and a half old now.
It's even bigger now, as is the kale and both lettuces. They're all just HUGE.)
And despite my fears of a complete rhubarb and asparagus patch failure, two of the three rhubarb roots I planted are starting to leaf, and two out of three ain't bad or so I've heard.
Also, most of the asparagus roots are starting to sprout too.
On the other side of the house, that one remaining tree that didn't sprout flowers in the spring with the rest of them? It's also a dogwood, a Kousa Dogwood to be precise. It will have blooms for the month of June and they will turn into edible fruit in the fall. How about that?
Apparently, it makes a lovely jam. Mostly, though it's just a very pretty tree.
