Experimenting with asparagus
I've ordered some Jersey Giant crowns from a mailorder catalog for this spring - I want to see if they'll grow in any of the sunny spots around my house. Does anyone have any advice or experience to share?
I live in the City of Poughkeepsie so I'm gardening in small sunny spaces around the back, front and side yards - hubby insists on growing grass in the best sun. My yard is surrounded by trees so the amount of sunlight varies depending on where you are.
I've got the usual wildlife issues - stray deer, skunks, groundhog (we named him Thor), racoons, squirrels (they're very well fed thanks to the butternut tree), the cat next door (decimated my catmint plants) and the ocaisional vole.
