Deano, I had a lovely asparagus bed, plenty for the freezer, but when it was about 15 years old it got bindweed which was impossible to dig out with the asparagus there, so I used a selective weedkiller that said it didn't affect asparagus. The asparagus started dying , but the bindweed didn't so when it was 18 years old I dug the whole thing up.
Had rhubarb too, easy until last year when it got a huge ants nest in it and it died.
Internet disappeared today so only just catching up.
Cooking OH his favourite loin of cod and asparagus tonight for his birthday then raspberry mousse (garden raspberries from freezer). He likes what he calls "fluffy puddings".
