Our first March workday saw work continue on moving the Asparagus to the new beds. This is a slow and arduous job to prevent too much damage to the crowns.
We realised they had probably been planted a little low in the old beds and the soil was too clayey so we have rectified this in the new area and hope we can soon be enjoying bumper harvests although this might not be until next year when they have fully re-established themselves.
Elsewhere on the farm
We are hoping to get new pigs in the next week so a team checked out the top pig pen, connected the water back to the trough and repaired the shelter ready for their arrival.
