Finally got around to planting the asparagus tonight.
I did the easy stuff; laying, filling compost and covering. Dean did the trenches (and moved a hosta for me). L. helped by trading shovels with anyone when it looked like they were successfully at work.

I also planted a Hollyhock my mother sent up with me Sunday night.
I gave her a perennial for Mother's day too.
Tomatoes, squash, cucumber, corn, and basil are hardening off on the deck. Our 85% frost date is this week. More on that soon.
