Asparagus New Shoots

Posted: 25/05/2015 at 11:41

Does anyone know the answer please

? Should the new growth only appear from the centre of the slips on the ridge OR can they appear any where along the roots

The magpie was interrupted by one of the 2 foxes that visit my garden to eat the sultanas that I put out for the black birds

A squirrel has appeared in the last 2 days as well

There is definitely a " Pecking Order " in the world of nature

I threw out some unsalted assorted nuts and noticed a magpie eating about 3 or 4 and them burying the same number individually a few feet away in the lawn and then again in the vegetable patch

This lasted about 15 minutes

? Is this usual friends

I have planted 5 asparagus slips

Dug a trench and created a rideg and laid them over the ridge so they spread out sideways about 4 foot in total

? Should the new growth only appear from the centre of the slips on the rideg OR can they appear any where along the roots

Its because I want to how the bed

Rows for me then with Verduns advice on a strong connection

Sparrows Stripping Chard

Posted: 17/05/2015 at 18:55

Bob

The chard is behind the rhubarb so all I can see from the house is sparrows disappering behind them and the chard shaking so I cant really tell what the little fellows are doing

Could be the Woodies  

Just stopped Mr Fox getting an injured Woodie

pansyface

how true

There was a famous saying in the 60s and 70s

With children we love them and with sadness we let them go............or something like that

And someone added

And if they dont come back and visit we hunt them down and kill them !!
