First of May in the potager

May 1st, 2009

Winds swept a heavy cover of clouds away, at last. Weeks of chilly wet weather have put planting and spading plans on the bench: no game. So, in spite of the wind, the vagabond ventures out to see what’s sprouting, what needs pruning, and what is (almost) edible in the garden.  Knobs of purple thyme of Crete blossoms sprawl over one corner, and Muguet – Lilies of the Valley, programmed for picking on May first – brighten the walk.  Chive buds are about to burst, bay flowers still cling to the laurel stems, and pink-tipped leaves on the Merlot vine protect their blossoms’ earliest stages. As a new season begins with encouraging signs,  I wish you all a very special May Day…Hauskaa Vappua!
