In my last post I visually gushed about crocuses and spring flowers. Later that day I noticed that while I was busy being enchanted by Penland's well-kept grounds, my own crocuses were struggling against all the weeds and leaves that I never cleared out from the fall.

|kale, lettuces, spinach, arugula, radishes|
|Henry and Alfred aren't sure about my spending so much time outside...|
