|Asparagus Aethiopicus - AKA Asparagus Fern|
This year, asparagus was planted in the garden for Farmer MacGregor to enjoy in the years to come. I've never grown it before. I understand that it takes two years of growth before you can harvest the spears. One great side benefit of growing asparagus is that the plants help to repel Root Knot Nematodes. Bonus. Three plants are thriving in a bed of mustards, marigolds, and basil. The basil was shocked with the recent freeze and will be returning to the earth soon.
If you grow asparagus, let me know any growing tips please.
