We are so excited to pick our first asparagus spears. So excited that we ran out and bought more crowns to plant. I have two raised beds in our mostly shady back yard. The asparagus was planted in one bed a couple of years ago and seems to be thriving. So we decided to fill the other bed with asparagus too!
I had some visitors while I planted, a pair of very friendly wild ducks. They checked all my weeds for bugs and ate a few grubs I found.
