Two days ago my rhubarb started clawing its way up from the dirt. This plant looks unstoppable.
And yesterday at some point during a clear, dry afternoon, aliens quietly deposited these in my asparagus row.
I took both photos this morning in a slight drizzle. Before this, we had a week of uninterrupted blue skies and frighteningly summery weather. Massachusetts has been on high alert for wild fires. Fortunately the ground was wet deep down from the weeks of rain prior to that, so all the deep-rooted plants have been happy.
