Hello everyone! We have been having some really nice weather here in Floyd. Today it is snowing BUT we have had several warm days. You all know what this old country girl likes to do on warm days. Garden! I love being outside working. Yesterday, we worked on making an asparagus bed. We have never raised asparagus before but last year a lady from our church gave us some she raised. It was so good. We knew we wanted to give it a try. I looked it up online and this is how it recommended planting it. First you dig a trench.
Then you must have an excellent helper like Ezzie. Just kidding, we would have finished much earlier without her help but it would not have been near as much fun.
Then we filled the trenches with good rich dirt and laid out the rhizomes. We had 20 so we put 10 in each trench. We then covered them with more rich dirt.
Then we covered it up good with hay. The internet said to use straw but we have free hay so that’s what we used. I think the hen is trying to figure out how to get inside the garden fence.
Both gardens are tilled, the raised beds are ready and the grass is getting green. I love this time of year. Enjoy your day and God bless.
How nice that must be to be able to even see the ground.. lol.. I can’t even see out my front windows or open my front door as there is just sooooooo much snow.. The most I can ever remember seeing.. Oh well.. Spring will come.. sometime.. grin. xoxo
Everything looks great! Did you completely fill in your asparagus trenches? I’m copying you!
Ezzie is a cutie. 🙂
I am impressed! I am itching to get out in the garden. I want to get the raised beds ready so carrots and peas can be planted.
Your garden areas look beautiful! I think spring has become my favorite season!
