Been a Mels 4x4 gardener for years now and successful with a variety of vegetables. Wanting to turn one of my beds into an asparagus patch but have a few questions.
Frame is made of 2x6's....should I make up a deeper bed using 2x8 or even 2 by something even taller?
Have a sheet of weed control something underneath my bed (been so long since I put it down I've forgotten the term for it! lol! hell to get old!) should I take it up so the roots can go through Mels Mix and then into Mother Earth below? Reason I ask, because I know it goes against a basic Mel principle and might allow weeds/grass to come up and compete with the asparagus which I know they would hate....but read somewhere asparagus roots like to run deep.
Any advice is certainly welcomed!
