The asparagus is growing!

Standard

 

The asparagus bed I started this year has started to produce more spears.  I am going to take this as a good sign as I am not sure we planted the asparagus crowns correctly on reflection.

I have since found this excellent guide from the BBC that tells you exactly how to do it, click here.  I can not collect any of the spears this year and will be lucky if I get a harvest next year.  Really I think it will be two more years before I am able to reap the rewards of my efforts.

  1. Have you tried sprinkling the ground around the plants with rock salt? They are the few plants that accept such treatment but it is not approved by the EU!
