What a beautiful set of weather we have had this week! Giving me the ability the plant 300 crowns of asparagus, 200 strawberry plants, 3 types of onions and 1000 peas. Shew digging those asparagus trenches was a workout. I had to use a handheld aerator and then dig them about 8 inches deep with a shovel. Fortunately for me, once established after one year, sometimes two years, asparagus grows for about 20 years without being replanted. Hooray! I'm all for making it a bit easier sometimes. I rather enjoyed planting the strawberries knowing they are the everbearing variety which means instead of a large amount of them in June they will continue to produce all the way into September in smaller amounts but continuous providing the variety at the farmer's market that I'm looking for.
