So where's the asparagus out beside the old garage? Usually by early May it's coming up. But not a stalk in sight yet.
I even put some fencing around that patch by the side of the garage, to keep the fellow I hire to mow my lawn from mowing over it, as has happened a few times in years past, and there goes the asparagus. Verbal requests don't work, gotta put up some fencing. Which I did this year, and he's steered clear.
But still no asparagus. Not so far this spring.
