The New Home Economics

This is a real shocker: growing your own food is hard work.

After removing a whole bunch of sod, amending the soil, moving in edging, and planting 3 blueberry bushes, 2 rhubarb plants, and 10 heads of asparagus, Adam said, “I’m already burned out on gardening for this year.” And it’s not quite May yet.

It’s hard to feel super excited when all the fruits of last night’s labor are so far into the future. Everything that we planted last night will not be harvestable for at least a year (rhubarb) or 2-3 years (blueberries and asparagus). I’d post a picture but it was dark by the time we were done, plus we planted bare-root plants so there’s not much to see.
