EASTER LILIES 

JUST FOR FUN

  • Moist but not “soaking wet” soil
  • Household temperatures; don’t keep near fireplace, appliances or heating ducts
  • Keep near sunny window; indirect natural light it good too; avoid glaring sunlight
  • To extend life of your plant: pluck off the 6 yellow anthers in the center
  • When original stems die, cut back to soil level; new growth may emerge within a month
  • Replant bulbs outdoors in raised bed; 12-18” apart; where they’ll get morning sun
  • You may be surprised with a second blooming late in the summer and for years to come

TIP OF THE WEEK

ASPARAGUS

Use leftover ham bone to flavor soup (split pea), pastasauce of to make a “hammy broth”. If you don’t have time to use it right now, wraptightly in foil; place in freezer until ready to use. (It will keep for severalmonths).

  

White has no chlorophyll which gives a “bitter” taste

Green gets sunlight a so it has a “sweeter” taste

Skinny spears are old, overworked

Thicker spears come from younger plants

Look for bright green color with tightly closed tips

Once you get it home, cut off 1/2 inch from base, place in dishor glass of water until ready to use and to prevent stringiness

Snap at base end, they have a natural breaking point,before cooking
