The asparagus has put in an appearance and this year I can take a light cutting, unless Billy the canine UG gets there first. Being a gourmet labrador he is partial to a spear or two.
I’ve been practising the hollandaise sauce, although they may not make it out of the allotment gates.
Enjoy. I’m not fussed about asparagus so don’t grow it. xx
I would love to grow asparagus but there won’t be room until I get my other half plot!!
Just keep a small eye out for those beautiful, shiny, iridescent beetles that also love asparagras.
Shhh, they don’t seem too prevalent on this site. The slugs however are another matter…
yeah, don’t get me started on slugs. We shamelessly scrounge coffee grounds from any of your Casto Coffee type places to spread around plants to deter these slimeballs.
