Therisa and I cleaned up and edged the asparagus patch today. There were still quite a few little parsley plants hiding amongst the weeds. Asparagus and parsley are planted together because the two plants boost each other's vitality. It's clear that the asparagus provides a cool, shady place for the parsley to hide during the hot summer months. I'm not sure what the parsley does for the asparagus, but I suspect that it's odor helps to keep away asparagus loving bugs.
