Working the Land

Chain Gang?

Swimming pool beginnings?

No, just a little asparagus planting........

Dig a trench that is a foot and a half deep,

Add compost to your soil and mix it in well. Lay out asparagus crowns and cover with soil, watering well.

'Tis the season! Get some asparagus in the ground now for 18-20 years of future harvests, it is a perennial and will come back year after year. A little work for years of good eating.

I want to hear how it goes! I was contemplating planting asparagus, but I don't think I'll try it just yet.
