Yesterday was the last pick of asparagus for the season and will now let it go to seed. I've harvested between 35 to 40 lbs in a little over months. The little fence keeps the plants upright and makes it easy to mow around. No weeds yet!
I planted my first tomato plant in northwest Illinois in 1947 and have been gardening ever since. My house is on a 2.3 acre lot and have 3 garden plots totaling 10,000 square feet. All vegetable. No flowers. No weeds.
