Weed Free (For Now)
At last! A mild off and on sunny day, a back on the mend...time to weed the asparagus bed. As you can see, it is finished, and am I ever glad. The path to the car meanders right by the asparagus bed, so every day I saw those awful weeds. I got them out just in time too. The bitter cress was in bloom and had already set a few seeds. I accidentally raked out a white asparagus tip, so things are already working down there. The soil was surprisingly friable for this early. We are pretty far behind our normal winter rainfall and it shows in the garden.
Monsieur Milbert would shake his head and remind me that I am a month late getting this done...but at least it is FINALLY finished.
Now, C will work a few buckets of compost into the soil. Then, we wait.
