No irksome trench

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

A decent session at the plot today; for the first time this year it was warm enough to stay for more than 40 minutes. So, 20 asparagus were planted following advice from Victoriana Nursery: ‘the traditional method is to plant the spider-like roots in a trench. Our experience directs that there is no need for such irksome work.’ I suspect Charles D. would agree. Plus 2 rhubarb. And still more compost shifting.
