Spent some time with my parents last week. I did a bunch of chores for them, hoping to get plenty of exercise and an awesome tan.
My parents have cultivated a large patch of asparagus and rhubarb that grows back every year. The crowns of asparagus are so large that they require daily tending. Every morning, they go out and cut back as much asparagus as in the first picture. They even have some renegade spears growing in their rhubarb patch, which is where the really big one came from.
A number of folks were still planting. Here is a picture of their topsoil blowing away.
I had a great time with them, even Queen Sophie.
