The aspargus is trying to tell me something.

This is year one of our asparagus plants.  All of the shoots I planted have come up again this year and I am happy to see they are still alive.  Asparagus needs about three years of growth before you can harvest anything to eat, but the stalks coming up is a good sign that I need to get the garden in gear.  I started the tiller after its long winter nap which always requires a spark plug socket wrench and a hefty spray of carburetor cleaner.  Ah spring, the bees, the flowers and sweet smell of carburetor cleaner.  I can't imagine trying to do a large garden with out the tiller.
