The trench method used to be the standard way to start asparagus and that is how I started all my beds. People do not realize that asparagus roots at maturity can get 5 to 6 feet in diameter and up to 15 feet deep in loose soil. They are super heavy feeders also but can live and produce in excess of 20 years.I am on my third asparagus patch. They seem to last about 20 years or a little longer. The one I planted in 2000 is starting to thin out. I am trying something new. When the concrete was poured for the greenhouse I was left with a trench all around it 5 feet deep and 3 feet wide all around. I researched what asparagus needs and filled this trench in with all manor of delicious food for them. When it was 4 feet deep I put 2 year roots in and buried them a foot deep in soil and compost. They have been growing well but not big enough to eat. I hope to have a good harvest this year.
That is the German word for "flowers", sorry I did not see your post until now.the chalkboard on our deck. What does yours say?
Might be a dumb question but is the gas on. Check oil could have oil shut off good luck. I had to tear the carburetor off and clean it on mine this springWe're getting frost every night so we still can't plant outside yet. Last week I bought some ghost pepper and some Thai pepper plants. We keep them inside at night. Still can't get the rototiller started. Its only been used 1 season. Its a DR brand that I thought was made in the US. Nope. Made in China. We may have a small garden this year.
Gas and oil level are fine, but the fuel tank got water in it somehow. I need to pull the fuel tank and the carburetor off and clean it out.Might be a dumb question but is the gas on. Check oil could have oil shut off good luck. I had to tear the carburetor off and clean it on mine this spring
