Some Firsts

Here are the first blossoms of the plum tree we planted just last spring.

This is the first shoot of asparagus this spring (we ate it raw, shortly after taking this picture). We're excited because we planted this asparagus bed three years ago, and now we finally get to eat what comes up. We're hoping for lots and lots more.

This is the first time I've ever potted up tomato seedlings that I started from seed. I was surprised how long the roots were.

And this morning we had the first taste of Tom's home-cured bacon. I don't have a picture (because we scarfed it down so quickly!) but it was delicious.
