The asparagus crowns have arrived and need to be planted. Too bad it is freezing outside. Should I have to wear a scarf in April to work in the garden? No. That is why I moved away from Massachusetts.
Leo's patch (my next door neighbor has let me plant in his back yard) is ready for the asparagus.
I dug a trench. Then it hailed. You can see the hail in the trench. Blasted colder than usual spring!
The asparagus crown looks like something a villain in a Disney film would have for hair.
I spaced out the crowns in the trench and then lightly cover them with soil.
In 2010, I will be ready for my first asparagus harvest!
