Asparagus

Last year's attempt at Asparagus was so poor (rubbish crowns, poor preparation, done in haste, predictable result) that it warrants another go. So here it is:

Before

During - funny looking things aren't they. The asparagus-eating spider crabs have landed!!

After


And look at this - the first proper "produce" of the season.

I feel a rhubarb crumble coming on. Yeah, I know, waistline. Phooey. What's the point of growing the beggars if ya don't eat 'em? And who can resist a rhubarb crumble.

And finally, doesn't this look neat?

I'm quite chuffed with just how neat & tidy this looks. Mind you, the bit behind me which you can't see tells another story!

Hi,
I'd get rid of the Chinese comment as usually they lead to sites you would prefer not to be linked to. I used Google translator to translate the comment and wished I hadn't!!

The rhubarb looks good

Excellent rhubarb - I make rhubarb cake which is even worse for you than crumble but could be a great way to celebrate that birthday ...

I'm not expecting much rhubarb this year as I shifted mine and split it into 3 parts ...so I'll just have to dream of the crumble....!
