So I guess this is year 6! Hard to believe. Still taming 2.5 acres of countryside after a life lived in the city.

This is one of the #asparagus crowns that I planted in 2017. Might get a small harvest from them this year, seems that most if not all have actually survived.

The one and only #asparagus crown that's doing ok... Luckily the ones from seed are doing much better!

Weird, I wonder what causes that? @Mikekally I think I'll leave them until next year anyway and see if anything happens...

Hi! Do you know anywhere in Ireland I can buy 9 asparagus crowns? They seem sold out everywhere.

If I recall correctly I got mine in Blackrock @carrotstick - where have you tried?
