CAN I HAVE SOME ASPARAGUS WITH THOSE SWEET PEAS?
We'd let the garden from years past get overrun. (Truth? I planted 5 horseradish plants and it took over). Successive helpers continued rototilling it until I had bits of horseradish, probably 200 plants coming up all over.
It took a man 2 days to dig them all up last year. I have still a few that pop up, but they are manageable.
So now I'm discovering my asparagus! I had some beautiful purple giant ones coming up before, and I've seen 2-3 so far this year. My famous saying is: My Garden Isn't Dead. It's Sleeping.
So, when I was picking sweet peas this morning, I got the little asparagus tip too. It will make it to my dinner plate tonight...
