“Waiting for Asparagus” 2022

Greetings Fellow Gardeners,

I’m reminded of this garden notion every March. Waiting for Asparagus, is a chapter in Barbara Kingsolver’s book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Her book takes us on a modern day journey of homesteading, and trying to live off the land. Her story begins in late March, when asparagus is the first crop to make an appearance. Kingsolver calls that time when we yearn for the first fresh produce of the year “Waiting for Asparagus.”

The old asparagus in my garden is now fairly few and far between because the Peonies have taken over. And so I am now “Waiting for Peonies”

Announcing Our New Online Book Store!

We have been busy sorting through the boxes and boxes of garden books we have collected over the years, and it is now time to share them with you!

We will be adding more books everyday so you will want to check our website often!

And here are a few to wet your garden appetite!

This Beautiful Book offers so much inspiration! The photos are outstanding but the gardening advice is invaluable. Companion planting at its finest. You will really enjoy this book!

The French, who are known for their style in all things, have long brought their artistry to bear on vegetable gardening, turning plots that could be merely utilitarian into gardens of real beauty. The Art of French Vegetable Gardening explores this rich and varied tradition in a way that is both inspirational and practical. Combining 175 color photographs shot throughout France with an informative text, The Art of French Vegetable Gardening explains how to create different styles of decorative vegetable gardens, from the strict geometries of formal tradition to the happy-intermingling of vegetables with flowers, herbs, and fruit trees beloved by organic gardeners. Each chapter offers useful advice and suggestions—applicable to gardens anywhere—while evoking the rich cultural context of the French potager as lovingly described by Colette, Proust, Gertrude Stein, and many others.

Elements of garden design—including layout, hedging, walls, benches, and vertical accents—are detailed, as are specific vegetables that can provide both beauty and flavor. Other topics include companion planting using herbs and flowers, heirloom and collectors’ varieties, and even the vegetable garden in winter. An extensive appendix offers 80 classic Frnech recipes for vegetables, lists of plants American seed sources, and French vegetable gardens open to the public. Practical as well as beautiful, The Art of French Vegetable Gardening is an invaluable sourcebook to return to again and again.

This book is one that I often turn to for seasonal garden bouquet inspiration. Her garden style florals are right up my flower alley!

Suzy Bales sums up garden arrangements like this: “Life is best lived in sync with the seasons.” She brings a new angle to four-season garden bouquets—gather the blooms, but don’t overlook the leaves, branches, and vines you find in the off-season. Her fresh-from-the-garden arrangements celebrate the ever-changing landscape and feature unique combinations of flowers and foliage for floral creations in every style.

Lifelong gardener and lifestyle writer Bales also takes on the role as inspirational designer to educate gardeners about the latest research on conditioning individual garden flowers, how to care for them immediately after cutting, and the length of time they can be expected to last. Garden Bouquets and Beyond: Creating Wreaths, Garlands, and More in Every Garden Season has compiled complete instructions for prolonging the bloom.

Be sure to check back often!
