Yesterday John planted asparagus and artichokes in the beds he'd prepared. We haven't done artichokes before, but are hopeful. We don't know if we can get them to winter over, but at least their roots will be bigger each year if they do. According to this article we should be sharing one big choke by August!
Then little ones will grow and we'll have a few more to enjoy.
We planted 3 plants. It may not be enough! We've got to wait a good 4 months or more to find out.
The asparagus won't be ready for a couple of years. We have a few plants that are ready to harvest this year, planted in 2007.
Otherwise, it's all preparation for a delicious future.
