The waiting game

The supervisor shadowing days have been going pretty well so far. No word yet from the chief regarding our schedule, which means we're all still in limbo as far as making future plans is concerned. For example, several months ago I registered for a convention over Memorial Day Weekend (which I was going to have off); now I have no idea whether I'll be able to attend. The continued uncertainty is frustrating and stressful.

I only had a one-day weekend, so I accomplished as much as I could. I managed to get the front yard relatively weed free. It's sprinkling a bit this weekend, so I grabbed several old, uneaten CSA carrots that had been sitting around in the refrigerator and planted them in the front yard. Hopefully the light rain will help them settle in, and I'll get pretty white flowers this summer.

Speaking of flowers, my wisteria buds are finally beginning to open. I can only imagine how pretty it will look in a couple years when the vines have covered the entire top of the pergola.

I managed to harvest another couple stalks of asparagus, which I chopped up and added to a quiche. The hard thing about growing so many perennials is waiting years before they get to full production.
