Asparagus In Our Future

Just before we left for our annual pilgrimage to the land of maple syrup, we received our order from Fedco. Asparagus, raspberries, strawberries, and two hazelnut trees. We managed to get the hazelnuts in the ground before we left, but the rest had to sit in cold storage. We have a few days to till, fertilize and plant before we leave again for a longer trip to Connecticut and Rhode Island. Although getting these things in the ground at this point is not exactly a priority, they take two or three years to be productive so we thought we'd make the time to do it now.

The weather for the week looks fabulous. Sunny and in the 50's. By the time we get back roughly two weeks from now, the roads should be unposted and the ground should be sufficiently dry to start the rest of the site work.
