Spring Planting Time

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know.  It sounds boring as all get out.  Since moving here, I have missed our old lilacs, asparagus, bee balms, coneflowers, and astilbes.  So, I ordered a bunch from Burpee.  Burpee has never, ever, let me down on the quality of its seedlings (or seeds, for that matter).  George Ball, who owns the company, lives on Fordhook Farm, only a few miles away.  We’ve been there a few times when he has an “open house.”

Anyway, those bare root plants look really good.  If you have a good imagination, they’d all be Chthulus.  Foot long roots for asparagus, 6″ ones for astilbes, etc.  Good job, George!
