We did something last week that we've been putting off for years .... planted up an asparagus bed!!
You don't get anything from your asparagus plants for the first three years, you have to be patient and let them grow each year and settle down without taking a harvest, so it's never been wise to get a bed started. We were on our first farm for three years, our second smaller place for two and now we are here in what is hopefully our last home before we retire to the seaside as pensioners so it was now or never.
There are only eight plants in here ..... I'm not that keen on the stuff, but it's a start.
For more information on growing asparagus for yourself have a look HERE.
And before anyone comes on and laves a comment saying how neat it all looks ..... I'll hold my hands up and show you the state of the bed below the new asparagus bed. I'll be weeding it tomorrow, I was working higher up the patch today on another even worse bed!!
